      Tip Reasoning

      There’s always something special about watching Fiorentina play and they have the look of a team that should be pretty good in 2015-16 too. Early in Serie A competition they’ve lost one game away from home to an easy to underrate Torino side and they’ve won their other two contests against AC Milan and Genoa respectively.

      24-year old Spanish defender Marcos Alonso has emerged as an early star providing quality defending and has also scored a couple of goals. At times, Fiorentina flatters a little to deceive not matching their goal total with time in possession or chances created.

      They face an FC Basel who has dominated Swiss football early this season winning eight games out of eight so far. They reached the last 16 of the Champions League one year ago, emerging in surprising fashion from Liverpool’s group before being hammered by Porto 5-1 over two legs.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Making up for last year

      Fiorentina looked like a serious contender in this competition last season before falling in semi-final stage losing 5-0 on aggregate against Sevilla. It was an ugly way for the Europa League to end for this team and it’s something that they won’t forget. We’re expecting something of a statement to be made in this opener.

      2. Midfield domination

      We just don’t see the personnel in Basel’s team to compete with Fiorentina in the midfield and even if the Italians don’t take their fair of chances, we don’t expect them to give too many up either.

      3. Near even odds on the win

      Fiorentina won’t have near even odds too often in group play in this Europa League group if things play out as we expect. Jump on it in this match-up.
