The French outfit came out all guns blazing and almost took the lead when Alexander Farnerud struck the post from close range.
Just minutes later the visitors made their pressure tell when Arthur Boka's left wing cross was headed home by Amara Diane - his first for the club.
Boka then got in on the act when his free-kick glanced off the wall leaving Pascal Zuberbuhler no chance of making a save.
Things went from bad to worse shortly after when last-man Patrick Muller brought down Diane, leaving referee Mark Halsey no option but to produce the red card.
Basel tried their best to get back into the contest after the interval, but Strasbourg defended resolutely and held out for the deserved three points.
Roma finished with 10-men in Tromso but still claimed a late 2-1 win in Norway.
Former Bayern Munich defender Samuel Kuffour put the visitors in front, although Ole Martin Aarst's strike ensured the sides were level at the break.
Leandro Cufre settled the contest with a winner six minutes from time, but it was all but plain sailing as Simone Perrotta earned a red card in the closing stages.
