Bitesize Prediction: Nice vs Basel – 20/04/23


Competition: Europa Conference League

Market: Terem Moffi to score anytime

Odds: 13/10 @ 888sport

Looking to punch their Europa Conference League semi-final ticket on Thursday night, Nice will welcome Basel to the Allianz Riviera.

Starting with the hosts, while Nice might still be tipped as a genuine Conference League contender this season, the Eaglets are in the midst of an extended rut. Last seen over the weekend getting hit with a shock 1-0 loss away at Brest, the Ligue 1 outfit have now failed to win any of their last five appearances across all competitions. Eventually settling for a 2-2 draw when they traveled out to Switzerland for their first-leg showdown last week, there is no doubt that fans around the Allianz Riviera will be calling on attacking talisman Terem Moffi to spearhead their charge here. Bagging a Conference League brace away at Basel last week, the 23-year-old has only continued to shine since arriving from Lorient during the January transfer window. Along with finding the net when returning from March’s international break away at Angers while on domestic duties, the Nigerian international has scored seven goals in his last nine appearances.

As for the visitors, although Basel might have snatched a first-leg 2-2 draw when they welcomed Nice to Switzerland last week, FCB will be more than aware that they face a real challenge on Thursday night. Last seen over the weekend playing out a 1-1 stalemate at home against Young Boys, the Super League outfit have managed to win just one of their last nine straight appearances within 90 minutes. With that run stemming all the way back to March 4th, the midweek guests have also shown some extended defensive issues. Mustering a single clean sheet on that nine-match rut, it should also be noted that FCB have won just a trio of their previous 10 Europa Conference League showdowns away from St. Jakob-Park. Watching Moffi bag a brace in last week’s first-leg meeting, the ex-Lorient striker will be looking to once again test a leaky Basel defence.

Bet: Terem Moffi to score anytime against Basel 13/10 for Thursday’s Europa Conference League tie @ 888sport
