FC Basel 2/5 to win their sixth consecutive Swiss Super League this season
Competition: Super League
Market: FC Basel to win the title
Odds: 2/5 @ Bet 365
With five consecutive league titles under their belt, FC Basel are pushing for an incredible sixth league crown in six seasons. The Swiss giants have a new manager in charge, Paulo Sousa, but they have a typically strong squad good enough to deliver more silverware this season.
They’ve started the campaign brightly too, winning both their opening games to take maximum points in the new season. Basel boasted the best defensive record in the league in 2013/14, and with Walter Samuel being a new arrival at the club, their backline continues to get stronger.
Sousa’s men also signed nine more players in the summer to ensure every position was adequately filled in case of injury. But they still have existing talents such as Serey Die, Fabian Frei, Marco Streller and Marcelo Diaz.
As a result, Bet 365 are giving them odds of 2/5 to win the Swiss Super League this season. They will have to fight off the likes of Grasshoppers, young Boys, and surprise package Zurich too, but have the quality to win again.
