Football tips: Recent form

After an alarming start to the season in terms of lack of signings, injuries and shipping four goals at home to Liverpool, Arsenal have quickly recovered and clicked into form. Four league wins in succession with a 3-0 thrashing of Chelsea the most recent and convincing. An opening day Champions League draw in Paris was an impressive result if not performance.

Basel have won their previous eleven domestic matches across all competitions which is an impressive run of form even for their dominance over Swiss football, and have nine wins from nine in the Swiss Super League. They opened their Champions League game with a disappointing home draw against Bulgarian side Ludogorets – who they shared a group with two seasons ago, along with Liverpool and Real Madrid. Swiss international Renato Steffen levelled the tie with ten minutes to go to earn Urs Fischer’s side a point.

Wednesday’s clash will be the first ever meeting between the two sides, and could see Granit Xhaka of Arsenal come up against his brother Taulant, who plays for Basel.

Basel have an excellent record against English clubs in the recent past in this competition, having previously progressed in groups which have dismissed Liverpool (twice) and Manchester United.
