Basel vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction and Betting Preview 06 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Basel vs Eintracht Frankfurt PredictionSince clinching the Swiss Super League title in 2017, Basel have failed to replicate the scintillating performances that saw them stroll to success that year. With archrivals Young Boys taking the league by storm in subsequent years, Bebbi have been relegated to the background.
Match status: 2019/20 Europa League - Play Offs - 1/8-finals
Venue: St. Jakob-Park (Basel)
Struggling to get their wits about them, Basel were totally unconvincing this term, dropping points even against the easiest of oppositions. With even a top-three finish looking out of reach, Koller’s charges rallied around late-on to finish third to qualify for the Champions League.

Meanwhile, Eintracht Frankfurt have had a howler of a league campaign this term. Their struggles well-documented, the Eagles could not strut favorable results on the bounce. In fact, they had looked set for a bottom-half finish but for a late resurgence that saw them rise to ninth on the log.

Having endured a disastrous domestic league run, Die Adler will turn their attentions to the Europa League, hoping to overturn a three-goal deficit in this second-leg fixture against Basel at the St. Jakob-Park. No matter how strong they turn up on the night, they are very unlikely to make a comeback here.

Basel vs Eintracht Frankfurt Team News

Enduring a tough run in the domestic league, Basel will be gutted with the manner in which their campaign panned out. Not only did they surrender the league title to Young Boys for the third consecutive season, Bebbi managed to bottle a second-place finish.

With St. Gallen turning heads this term, they put forth magnificent displays to finish just above Basel on the log, holding a whopping six-points safety buffer. Tough luck for Bebbi, and with the league season over, they will be eyeing an unlikely fairytale run to Europa League success.

Also, Basel are still in contention for the Swiss Cup and are already through to the semifinals of the competition. Even though they faltered in the domestic league, they still have decent shots at some piece of silverware with their place in the Europa League and Swiss Cup still intact.

Eintracht Frankfurt have also had their own fair share of struggles in the German Bundesliga. A side destined for greatness this term, with many tipping them for continental qualification, Die Adler managed to throw their chances all up in the air.

Having accrued an underwhelming 45 points from 34 games, Frankfurt finished ninth on the log, ultimately missing out on Europe. To pile on the misery for Die Adler, they were hammered 3-0 by their Swiss counterparts in the first-leg of this fixture at the Deutsche Bank Park.

Prior to that game, Frankfurt were deemed overwhelming favorites for the win. They were on home turf, competing in a more highly rated league – the German Bundesliga – and had been on a better run of form. However, for all the advantages, they managed to lose out to Basel.

Firing three unanswered goals past Kevin Trapp, Basel turned on the style. Adi Hutter must have given his players the ‘hairdryer treatment’ in the dressing room as he watched his side taken to school by a Swiss outfit. Disappointments do not come any bigger than that.

Now taking a trip to St. Jakob-Park to attempt an unlikely comeback, Die Adler will need to show great character and resilience if they are to overturn this deficit to advance to the quarterfinals of the Europa League.

Basel vs Eintracht Frankfurt Predictions

Surely, Frankfurt will be going all out for the win. They were taken aback by Basel’s performances in the first-leg and will want to show Bebbi something else in this reverse fixture. Expected to be a closely-fought game, the visitors should secure victory here but still end up crashing out of the competition. The three-goal deficit is simply unsurmountable for the Eagles.
