FC Basel have made quite a name for themselves in European club football in recent seasons having beaten Manchester United in the 2011/12 Champions League group stage and knocking out Tottenham Hotspur in the Europa League quarter finals last season. Coach Murat Yakin has his team playing a blend of fluid football which even some of Europe’s elite have struggled to contend with and Basel will exhibit this to good effect on Tuesday.
Maccabi Tel Aviv have the difficult task of progressing from this third qualifying round, but will perhaps be encouraged by the fact they have made it to the Champions League group stage before. Nevertheless the first leg at St Jakob Park will be a tough game for Maccabi Tel Aviv and getting men behind the ball to prevent Basel from attacking freely would seem their best chance of getting anything from the game if they can catch the home side out with a counter-attack.

Basel Captain Marco Streller will lead the line for the Swiss side and could be partnered by Raul Bobadilla up-front to complete a frightning attack for Maccabi Tel Aviv to contend with, and the Israeli side would do well to keep the tie alive for the second leg next week.
