Basel have no alternative but the win after their 2-1 defeat in the first game. They weren't actually a threat for their opponent since they achieved only two dangerous pieces in the penalty area, which they didn't eventually have a good finish. They only scored after a lucky header. Between the two matches, they had also domestic liabilities since they drew with Xamax at 86' in home in the second round of Swiss Super League, despite the fact that they had the lead from 64'.
On the other hand PAOK, had no other obligations and that helped them to reconsider their mistakes of the first match. The fact is that they could win 2-0 if they hadn't concede a easy goal due to their passive defense and bad luck. Still, they had a better performance during the whole game and created two very decent chances in front of Basel's goal, that could pushed them even forward. They have a good tradition in away European games and with a good result in their bag and a good plan they can even win again.
The Greek team showed a dominance in the first game despite their irresponsible mistakes. I would choose the home win X2 at 1.83 with an 8 points bet.
