Basel vs Fiorentina by Peter
FC Basel 1893 has a good European campaign, after 4 rounds they are on the 1st place with 9 points, in this season they won 3 matches, made no draw and lost 1 match, they also managed to score 7 goals and received 3 goals.
FC Basel 1893 has some injuries, central defender Daniel Höegh, central defender Wálter Samuel, right defender Philipp Degen and attacking midfielder Matías Delgado.
On the other side, AC Fiorentina has a modest European campaign, after 4 rounds they are on the 2nd place with 6 points, in this season they won 2 matches, made no draw and lost 2 matches, they also managed to score 8 goals and received 4 goals.
Also AC Fiorentina can't count on right midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski who is injured and on secondary striker Ante Rebic who is suspended. In my opinion the suspension of Ante Rebic is a good thing because in this way Nikola Kalinic will play and he is clearly a better player.
In the first match FC Basel 1893 won with 2-1 at AC Fiorentina but in my opinion that match was fixed, the coach of AC Fiorentina, Paulo Sousa trained FC Basel 1893 last season, AC Fiorentina had 1-0 at half time, in the second half, a player from AC Fiorentina took a red card and FC Basel 1893 won 2-1, things can happen in football but sometimes it's so obvious that some things were known before the start of the match.
Anyway, excluding the first match, AC Fiorentina needs a win in this match, if not, FC Basel 1893 will win the since this night, even with a win in the last round AC Fiorentina won't be able to win the group, also not winning the group will bring them a tougher opponent in the next round.
I'm going on AC Fiorentina, they don't want to complicate their European campaign and they need a win here to keep chances at the 1st place.
