Basel have won all of their opening 4 games with only Grasshopper providing them with a real test although they did have to come from behind to win 3-1 at Luzern at the weekend. Prominent in the minds of Basel supporters at this time of year is the race to make the group stages of the Champions League. They impressively dispatched Polish champions Lech Poznan 4-1 on aggregate in their first qualifier and have a play-off with Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv to look forward to next week. That shouldn't really have any effect on team selection here though and Basel are more likely to rest players when they visit minnows Meyrin in the Swiss Cup at the weekend. That means it could be a long evening from FC Thun with Basel looking as dominant as ever. Thun finished 4th last season to make the early Europa League qualifying rounds and their early ventures in Europe have gone better than their league matches so far this term. They have lost 3 of their opening 4 Swiss Super Leauge fixtures but have made it into the Europa League play-off round and to the brink of the more lucrative group stages which would be a fine achievement for the club. They beat Hapoel Be'er Sheva before coming through on away goals against FC Vaduz, who are based in Liechtenstein but also play in the Swiss Super League.
