Switzerland's Super League season ends this Monday, after third-placed Basel host fifth-placed Luzern in one of five evening fixtures. Basel are unbeaten in six games (W3, D3), while Luzern ended a run of six matches without a victory with a 2-1 win over FC Zurich on July 31.

Neither team has anything left to play for at this stage of the campaign, though Marcel Koller's side want a strong finish. After all, they return to Europa League knockout action on August 6 against Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt.

Can they warm up for that clash with a win? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Basel vs Luzern Betting Tips

After a stoppage-time equaliser against Lugano saw the points shared in a thrilling 4-4 draw on July 26, Basel followed that up with a stalemate five days later.

Held scoreless for only the second time since play resumed in June, they were down to ten men against Thun. Paraguayan centre-back Omar Alderete, one of their most consistent performers this term, was sent off after two quick bookings.

They held firm in the final 20 minutes after his dismissal though, to earn their fourth clean sheet of July.

Basel hold the league's best defensive record (38 goals conceded, 35 games) and it'll be interesting to see what Alderete's absence means for them out of possession here. Left-sided defender Raoul Petretta slotted in okay, while defensive-minded midfielder Jasper van der Werff can also play central defence.

It's likely they'll be busy against a motivated Luzern side, who boast Pascal Schurpf in the final third. He's been brilliant since play resumed, created his fifth assist against Zurich and also has eight league goals this term. With an eyewatering seven key passes last time out, he'll be keen to unlock the hosts' backline here.

Basel vs Luzern Correct Score Predictions

As previously mentioned, there's no real pressure on either side to get a result. Basel will be expecting an improved display though with Frankfurt in their sights but I'm going with BTTS.
