UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 5th December 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio da Luz (Lisbon).
Basel will be eyeing a win and trump CSKA for a place in Champions League round of 16.
Benfica lost all their five matches in the Champions League this term and are entirely eliminated from European competitions. This is a huge surprise as they were expected to get the better of CSKA and Basel with ease. Also, they have been prolific in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
On the other hand, Basel are the surprise package this season's Champions League. And their biggest result this far is the 1-0 drubbing of Manchester United on matchday 5. The win proved vital, which gave them a better edge on matchday 6 with immense pressure from CSKA who are level on 9 points.
Basel will qualify for the round of 16 with a win or a draw if CSKA fail to defeat Manchester United.
