Basel hosts Eintracht Frankfurt in the second leg of the Europa League 1/8 finals. The match will be played on Thursday, July 6th at St. Jakob-Park (Basel)
Basel failed to score in the last two matches of the Swiss championship, but Bebbi can be justified. They spent most of the away match against Thun with ten men and were unlucky in the game with Luzern. Beyond that, Koller made rotations since the final games of the championship decided nothing. Therefore, you should not proceed from the recent matches of Basel. This team knows how to score and does it often. Bebbi can overcome a strong opponent even in the European Cups, as the players of Eintracht Frankfurt have already seen. During the season, the Swiss beat not only the Eagles. They managed to smash Krasnodar, beat Getafe twice, and knocked out PSV from the Champions League qualification. It is not surprising that the ex-champion of Switzerland is the favorite even in the return match against Eintracht Frankfurt.

We can safely say that quarantine benefited Eintracht. Of course, the Eagles were unstable after the resumption of the season but scored more points in the Bundesliga during the season (on average). Most importantly, Hutter's team scored regularly. Only Mainz managed to miraculously survive under its pressure. As for the remaining 10 matches after the lockdown, Eintracht did not leave the field without goals scored. In particular, the Eagles gave battle to Bayern twice and managed to breach the defense of the German hegemon in both meetings. In general, Hutter's team scores in six games in a row and is ready to extend their scoring streak.
It should be noted that Hutter's team was unlucky in the first match. It clearly did not deserve to lose with a 0-3 score, and at least one goal had to fly into Basel’s net. Now the chances of scoring are higher. Firstly, the Germans are forced to score at least three goals, so they will make an onslaught on the Swiss net from the first minute. Secondly, the Eagles stabilized their game after the lockdown and acted much more effectively in the attack than before the long pause. I remember the German Cup semifinals, when Eintracht managed to crush Bayern in the second half. Then one of the strongest clubs in the world was forced to sit back on heels, being under the onslaught of the Eagles. I think that the Germans will get chances for a comeback in the return match. But given that Eintracht Frankfurt managed to concede three goals from the Swiss even at home, Hutter's team will hardly leave Basel’s field without a goal conceded.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
