Basel vs Eintracht Prediction 6 August 2020

Tournament: UEFA Europa League
Location: st. Jakob Park
Match date: 06.08.2020 at 20:00

The first match of the Round of 16 of the Europa League between Basel and Eintracht Frankfurt ended unexpectedly 3: 0 in favor of the Swiss. How exactly will the teams prove themselves the second match? We are not sure, but we still think that there will be comparatively a lot of goals scored this time. 

On the eve, the next Swiss championship ended, and Basel took a frankly low third place there. But in European competition, the Red-Blues feel much more comfortable. The successful result in the quartet with Getafe, Krasnodar and Trabzonspor, as well as the triumph over APOEL (3: 0, 1: 0) in the 1/16 finals are another confirmations of this.

After a successful previous campaign, Eintracht Frankfurt dropped to the ninth place in the Bundesliga. But on the continental arena, everything is different. Back in the fall, the Eagles took the second position in the group with Arsenal, Standard and Guimaraes. And in the first round of the playoffs, they were stronger than Salzburg - 4: 1 and 2: 2.

On paper, it is the guests who look much more solid, but they are unlikely to eliminate the three-goal gap. My prediction: the teams will play in an attacking style and score at least three times for two. For none of them it makes any sense to sit in defense.
