Hot Tip – Both Teams to Score (7/10)

  • Both teams notched two goals when Zurich and Basel last faced off back in September.
  • Five of Basel’s last seven Super League fixtures featured goals from both teams.

Both teams landed blows in a 2-2 draw between the clubs in September and our primary Basel vs Zurich prediction anticipated goals at both ends again in the return fixture.

Player to Watch – Jonathan Okita

Jonathan Okita has scored nine times in the Super League this season making him Zurich’s leading marksman in the division. The 27-year-old was among the goal scorers when Zurich drew 2-2 with Basel in September and the wide attacker has the skills to make a similar impact on Sunday.
