Know the form: Basle.

The Swiss champions must fancy their chances of making it through to the semi-finals against one of the Bucharest clubs.

Christian Gross' team take a healthy cushion into tonight's game following their victory at St Jakob Park a week ago.

And they won for the first time in three attempts in the league at home on Sunday, when late goals from Mladen Petric and Daniel Majstorovic (penalty) put paid to BSC Young Boys.

Basle's winning run represents an about-turn in form compared to their results before the first leg.

The league game at Xamax was postponed due to snow on the pitch and followed stalemates against St Gallen and FC Aarau.
