St. Gallen and Basel will battle for three points in a Swiss Super League matchday 29 fixture on Sunday.

The hosts come into the game on the back of a comfortable 3-0 away victory over Sion last weekend. Victor Ruiz scored and provided an assist in the first half to inspire the win for his side.

Basel settled for a share of the spoils in a thrilling 2-2 draw with rivals Young Boys on home turf. The visitors twice came from behind, with Wilfried Kanga stepping off the bench to score the equalizer in the 78th minute.

The draw saw them maintain their hold on second spot with a five-point advantage over third-placed Young Boys. However, they are still 12 points behind runaway leaders FC Zurich, while St. Gallen sit in fifth place on 40 points.

St. Gallen vs Basel Prediction

St. Gallen have been the more consistent side in recent weeks and this, coupled with their home advantage, will boost their confidence heading into the game. Basel, for their part, have blown hot and cold but still have enough quality to leave with something.

Both sides are attack-minded and this could translate into lots of goalscoring opportunities. We are backing the spoils to be shared in a high-scoring game.
