Schalke v Basel Tips: Mohamed Salah

Averages 1.8 shots per game and Basel’s leading scorer in the Champions League.

We are starting to sound like a broken record because this is the fifth time we have tipped him but Mohamed Salah is cracking value in the anytime goalscorer market at 5/1 (Bet365).

He is Basel’s leading scorer in the Champions League with two goals and averages 1.8 shots per game, another team high.

Most importantly six of his nine shots have come from inside the penalty area, which means the Egyptian winger is getting into good positions to score.

A place in the knockout stages is up for grabs in this evening’s match and nothing but victory will do for Schalke. The German’s must therefore adopt a win or bust mentality, which means we could be in for a goal-fest increasing the chances of Salah getting onto the scoresheet.
