On May 11, Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence) will host the first leg of the 1/2 finals of the Europa Conference League, in which Fiorentina will compete with Basel. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The club has been playing under the rule of Italiano since the summer of 2021. Vincenzo immediately justified the trust, having managed to win the 7th place in the Serie A with his new wards. Still, it goes without saying that it is impossible to repeat the same result – nowadays, all representatives of the European tournament zone have been able to break away from their pursuers, including “the Violets”, at a noticeable distance. To be honest, this has been more than compensated for in other tournaments so far. The team from Florence reached the final of the Coppa Italia, where there will be a match against Inter. The Italian team does its best in the European competition. Unlike many other clubs, Fiorentina’s attitude to the Conference League is more than serious. Suffice it to say that all opponents in the play-offs, Braga, Sivasspor and Lech, conceded 4 goals in the first matches. Generally speaking, there was a series of 9 victories in a row in the tournament, and only the Polish team “slammed the door”, winning the battle at Stadio Artemio Franchi with a 3-2 score. Moreover, the guests had led the game until its 78th minute by 3 goals!
The team is still regarded by many as the most successful Swiss team of the current century. Still, it is not able to take the gold medals for the 6th season. In 2022, it was possible to achieve at least the 2nd place, but nowadays there is a real threat to finish in the 5th position, being as a result without a ticket to the European competitions of the next season. There were several times when “the RotBlau” could have left the Conference League. Even speaking about the qualification in summer, the giant lost the first battles to such rivals as Brøndby and CSKA Sofia. The team overcame the group stage in the autumn, mainly due to a couple of victories over Pyunik. The play-offs were played in a similar style: Trabzonspor conceded the decisive goal at the home arena in the 76th minute of the game after a 0-1 score in Turkey; the ability to win a penalty shoot-out helped in the battle against Slovan, and Nice was eliminated in extra time of the away match.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The clubs played only at the group stage of the Europa League in 2015. Basel was better in that confrontation: an away win and a draw in Switzerland.
Bookmakers believe that Fiorentina will not repeat the fate of other opponents of Basel. Let’s risk betting on the victory of the Italian team with “a -1 goal handicap” (odd: 1.77).
