Basel – Eintracht Frankfurt : Preview & Prediction
FC Basel have come the hardest part of the way by winning quite easily in Germany with a clear score of 3 goals to 0 on March 12 in the Round of 16 first leg of the Europa League. Campo, Bua and Frei are the scorers of this first opposition. The Swiss club should manage during this return match at St. Jakob-Park in a stadium where it has not known defeat for 8 receptions, notably beating in C3 the formations of Getafe (2-1), Trabzonspor (2- 0) and APOEL (1-0). Arthur Cabral’s teammates (14 league goals) ended the season in the league with 3 draws against Lugano (4-4), Thun (0-0) and ahead of Lucerne (0-0). Eintracht Frankfurt ended its season since June 27 with 1 short success ahead of Paderborn (3-2) at home. The Germans played a friendly match against AS Monaco on August 1, which ended with a score of parity (1-1). A good recovery for the formation of Hutter who has little illusion as to a qualification for the quarterfinals, especially since Frankfurt has won only 1 of its last 3 trips to the European scene.
FC Basel had won 3 goals to 0 in Germany in the first leg.
