Tottenham travel to Switzerland tonight to face Basel needing a result, and probably a win at that, to qualify for the semi-finals of the Europa League.
A 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane last week means Basel have two vital away goals and Spurs will have to go out and attack tonight, they are 2/1 (Bet365) to get the win, the draw is 5/2 (Betway) and Basel are just about favourites at 6/4 (Coral).

Basel have a fantastic home record, they are unbeaten in 14 home matches and have kept clean sheets in their last 11. This run includes a 2-0 win over Zenit in the last round and their last four Europa League matches in total.
Tottenham will once again be without their first team (Gareth Bale) and face a real uphill task tonight. Their last Europa League away trip was one to forget, almost throwing away a 3-0 first leg lead against Inter Milan and needing an away goal in extra time to progress after eventually drawing 4-4 on aggregate.
So far on the road in this competition Tottenham have drew four and lost one so their form doesn’t stand them in good shape to get a victory tonight, and Basel look the team most likely to go through.
Marco Streller lead the line superbly for Basel last week and deserved a goal without managing it, expect him to get on the scoresheet tonight.
Basel to win – 6/4 with Coral
Streller to score anytime 9/4 with Stan James
Streller to score first – 6/1 with Betway
