These sides are cast as outsiders in a group with Paris St-Germain and Arsenal, but the same was true two years ago when paired with Real Madrid and Liverpool and they collected seven and four points respectively, with the former progressing to the knockout phase at the Reds' expense.

Both meetings between the pair that season were won by the hosts, 4-0 in FC Basel's case and 1-0 in Ludogorets'. They also clashed in qualifying the year before, with 4-2 and 2-0 victories seeing the Swiss title holders through comfortably.

Head-to-head supremacy coupled with home advantage should be enough to see them justify 1.758/11 favourites status. They have won their four games in front of their fans this term by a 13-2 aggregate margin, while Ludogorets have lost their three prior group-stage road trips by an aggregate 10-1.


Over 2.5 Goals

All seven of FC Basel's Swiss Super League fixtures to date have ended the same way, with them triumphant and the net rippled three times or more.

Indeed, they have scored over 2.5 goals by themselves in each of those contests, helping to explain why four of the latest six have cleared 3.5 too and three of them have passed 4.5.

As for Ludogorets, they came through three rounds of qualifiers to get this far and four of their final five matches in that process delivered three strikes or more, so back this to follow suit at 2.01/1.
