Our Betting tip in the Europa League can be found in the Basel v Zenit match odds market. The Swiss club saw off Ukrainians Dnipro in the last round, but Russian football is starting to have a real impact on the European scene, so can Zenit win this first leg?
Match: Basel v Zenit
Betting tip: Basel Win
Best Odds: 2.96 with Pinnacle
Kick Off: 20:05 07/03/2013 (GMT)
Basel have drifted in the match odds market, and the price has reached a point where they look worth backing. The Swiss club may not enjoy the same fanfare as the heavy spending clubs from the Russian league, but they have performed well in Europe so far, particularly at home, and look well priced to take a lead to Russia in the second leg. They have won three and drawn one in their home European games and they came through handsomely against dark horses Dnipro in the last round. Zenit have won many admirers, but their away record in the Champions League and latterly Europa League reads played four, won one, lost three. Liverpool, Malaga and Anderlecht have all got the better of Zenit on home soil, and Basel can follow them at an attractive price.

Back Basel with Pinnacle at 2.96.
