UEFA Europa Conference League picks for Fiorentina vs. Basel
Before you tune in to Thursday's match, you need to see the UEFA Europa Conference League picks from SportsLine soccer expert Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine's top soccer editor for more than five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most-informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
Sutton finished 2022 as SportsLine's top soccer expert with a 165-130-2 mark, returning nearly $2,200 for $100 players. He also excelled in Serie A with a 63-39-1 mark, returning nearly $1,600.
For Basel vs. Fiorentina, Sutton is taking Over 2.5 goals for a -145 payout. Basel allowed six goals in a blowout loss to St. Gallen on Sunday and have now allowed at least one goal in 11 consecutive matches. They were lucky to see Fiorentina put just three of 15 shots on target in the first leg, but they might not be as fortunate on Thursday.
Fiorentina have not been shut out in their last five matches, scoring multiple goals three times during that stretch. They have scored at least two goals in their five European road matches against Swiss competition, forming an unbeaten record during that stretch. Their attack has also scored 11 goals in their last four fixtures in the UEFA Conference League, giving them momentum heading into a match in which they need to score two-plus goals.
