Eintracht Frankfurt vs Basel Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Eintracht Frankfurt’s form at Commerzbank-Arena is expected to be the difference as they host Basel in the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 first leg. Basel are good enough to score in Frankfurt but are likely to come unstuck in a hostile atmosphere.

Eintracht Frankfurt Form


Eintracht Frankfurt have been inconsistent in recent weeks as they fight on three fronts. The Eagles drew 2-2 at Salzburg which was enough to progress in the Europa League following a 4-1 home win. 

Adi Hütter’s side beat Werder Bremen 2-0 in the German Cup semifinals with André Silva and Daichi Kamada on target. Eintracht returned to Bundesliga duty on Saturday and were beaten 4-0 at Bayer Leverkusen.

Their away form is a big problem but a return to Frankfurt could be just what they need.

Midfielder Lucas Torro and striker Bas Dost are close to a return but unlikely to start. Hütter will make changes with midfielders Mijat Gacinovic and Djibril Sow a chance to start alongside striker Gonçalo Paciência.

Danny da Costa and Timothy Chandler compete for a right back spot at the expense of Almamy Toure. David Abraham is likely to start in central defence.

Basel Form


Basel haven’t played since a 1-0 home win against APOEL secured a 4-0 aggregate victory in the Europa League. Fabian Frei scored the winner from the penalty spot after Raoul Petretta, Valentin Stocker and Arthur Cabral were on target in Cyprus. 

Basel have won five of their last six Europa League matches but have lost four of their last six matches in the Swiss Super League. Their last domestic match was a 2-2 home draw against Servette, a disappointing result after Valentin Stocker and Fabian Frei put them 2-0 up after 19 minutes.

Basel News


Manager Marcel Koller is missing injured midfielders Kevin Bua, Luca Zuffi and striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel. Having not played since 27 February, Basel’s players should be well rested.

Centre back Omar Alderete is available after serving a Europa League suspension against APOEL.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Basel Match Up


Eintracht Frankfurt do their best work at home where they recently beat Leipzig in the Bundesliga and German Cup. The Eagles accounted for Salzburg 4-1 in their previous Europa League home match and will be confident in front of a raucous home crowd.

Basel’s recent Europa League should provide confidence for the Swiss club but APOEL are not in the same class as Eintracht Frankfurt. Basel’s previous three league matches have been postponed due to coronavirus, how the layoff affects them remains to be seen.
