Eintracht Frankfurt are stuck in the 12th position with 28 points, which is closer to the relegation zone than to European positions. Frankfurt have lost last three domestic matches to Borussia Dortmund, Union Berlin and Bayer Leverkusen with a total goal difference of 1-10.
Basel eliminated Cypriot side APOEL Nicosia quite easily in the previous round 4-0 on aggregate. They are also underperforming in the national championship, sitting as 3rd with 40 points at the moment, five behind the leading duo St Gallen & Young Boys.
Frankfurt are looking awful when it comes to defending, and we don’t see them keep a clean sheet against Basel. Both teams to score is the most obvious betting recommendation here. Draw or away win at 2.5 also feels like value.
