Match Preview

  • Basel will be hoping to extend their UEFA Europa League (UEL) winning run to five, which is largely due to conceding zero goals during that time, and on three occasions scoring in both halves. They have also won six UEL contests at home in succession, four ‘to nil’, whilst two of the last three featured a penalty scored.
  • Only once during those six home wins were they not winning at HT, whilst all three goals they conceded came between the 40th-55th minute period. Furthermore, Basel last lost a European home clash in August 2019, so they’re tough to beat at St Jakob-Park.
  • Eintracht Frankfurt ended the Bundesliga season with five wins from their last seven games (D1, L1), including two wins by a three-goal margin, which increases hopes of overturning this 3-0 first-leg deficit. They did score an average of 1.74 goals per game across the league campaign, but keeping only four clean sheets out of a possible 23 in 2020 (in all competitions) suggests defensive vulnerabilities.
  • Across Frankfurt’s last 17 competitive away games, they conceded the opener on 13 occasions (W2, D3, L8). Five of their past six road wins have featured both teams scoring (four by a 2-1 scoreline), whilst they failed to score in four of their latest eight away setbacks.
  • Players to watch: Fabian Frei has netted the final goal in Basel’s last two UEL clashes.
  • Daichi Kamada has netted five goals, including a hat-trick in a 4-1 victory over RB Salzburg, across Frankfurt’s last two UEL wins.
  • Stat attack: Frankfurt have progressed in three of the other four two-legged UEFA H2H ties versus Swiss opposition.
  • Basel scored a first-half goal in the last ten UEL matches in which they avoided defeat.
  • Frankfurt have conceded under 5.5 corners in five straight competitive away games.
