Bold approach can pay off for hosts

New arrival Seydou Doumbia has scored seven goals in ten appearances for Basel
1 of 1

Champions League
BT Sport Extra, 7.45pm

Ludogorets have not got much reward for their refreshingly attacking approach to the Champions League but can seal third place in Group A by beating Basel at the Levski Stadium.

The Bulgarians have played positively against the big guns and taken some punishment, losing 3-1 at home to PSG and 6-0 and 3-2 to Arsenal.

However, their bold approach also earned them a well-deserved 1-1 draw away to Basel on matchday one and they are likely to do even better with the benefit of home advantage.

Basel have been a major disappointment.

They were the team expected to cause the most problems for Arsenal and PSG but have failed to collect a point against the English and French sides.

A draw would be enough to keep them in third but they may struggle to achieve it.
