Champions League Live Betting: FC Basel vs. LiverpoolPublished October 1, 2014 by Amir G
Matchday 2 of the Champions League sees FC Basel host Liverpool in a game that they absolutely must win (7:45pm UK time).
Matchday 2 of the UEFA Champions League continues today as Group B sees Liverpool and FC Basel meeting in Switzerland (7:45pm UK time).
Basel Desperate for Win
FC Basel's Champions League season began on the left foot after they've lost 5-1 to Real Madrid in the group's opener two weeks ago. The Swiss champions have shown great performances in the domestic Swiss Super League, positioned atop the table with 22 points composed of 7 wins in 10 games.
However, things lacked for the Swiss champions against Real Madrid and a game against Liverpool today is the last thing they would ask for in this situation. If Basel loses this game, they can practically say goodbye to the Champions League season.
Liverpool Must Improve
Liverpool is still under the impression left by the Merseyside derby disappointment in which they lost a 1-0 lead due to an injury-time goal by Everton's Phil Jagielka. Their game against Ludogorets Razgrad a fortnight ago finished 2-1 in favor of the Reds but it took the team 82 minutes and one Mario Balotelli to succeed. Without the home advantage and Basel's desperate need for three points and considering the flaws in Liverpool's defense have been exposed in its games against Ludogorets and Everton it's not impossible that Liverpool will lose today
