Eintracht are 12th in Bundesliga and this year their defense has been a big problem. After losing 4:0 to Bayer in the last 25th round, Frankfurt are now with 3 consecutive league losses and in all of them their defense conceded 2+, Dortmund scored 4 just like Bayern while Union won in Frankfurt with 1:2
So far nothing is official here and Bundes is still not postponed, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be. With that in mind I'm focusing on this game only and ignoring their Monchengladbach game in the next round, which I think won't happen. Even if it does Eintracht are still 6 points above relegation so they don't have to prepare especially well for that game, they can focus on beating Basel today, because god knows when the 2nd leg of this game will be played and a home win is crucial.
With the defense that Eintracht showed in this season, that won't be easy at all. Basel are well rested since they haven't been in action since 27th of Feb. when they outplayed APOEL in the 2nd leg with 1:0 after beating them in Cyprus with 0:3.
Rested Basel should create chances against this poor Eintracht defense. But, Eintracht at home are constantly scoring and they have now scored in their last 9 home games, and in 8 of them they scored 2+ goals.
BTTS odds are strong because many are expecting home win but with rested Basel and Frankfurt's def. record this year, they should at least score one goal today.
