Fiorentina vs Club Brugge: Betting Preview

Fiorentina vs Club Brugge Match Preview

A first-time meeting between Fiorentina and Club Brugge will take place at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Thursday, with a spot in the UEFA Europa Conference League final on the line.

It has been a roller-coaster of a season in Florence, as Fiorentina started off the campaign in such impressive form. However, La Viola were not able to maintain that start, and now sit eighth in the Serie A. They were also dumped out of the Coppa Italia last week by Atalanta. Despite a 5-1 thumping of relegation-threatened Sassuolo on the weekend, Vicenzo Italiano’s side has been rather inconsistent of late.

Yet, a second Conference League semifinal for Fiorentina – being the only team to have reached this stage of the competition on multiple occasions – provides them with another chance at European silverware. Having lost in the final a year ago in Prague, Fiorentina looks to participate in a European final in consecutive seasons for the second time in club history.

It has been 32 years since Club Brugge last graced the semifinals of a European club competition. On that occasion, they beat Atlético Madrid in the 1992/93 UEFA Cup Winners Cup, before losing to Werder Bremen in the final. They have reached two quarterfinals since, but have failed to get past that stage.

Club has seen a resurgence in recent times since sacking Ronny Deila at the conclusion of the Belgian regular season. Interim boss Nicky Hayen is unbeaten in his eight games in charge of Blauw-Zwart, winning seven on the spin, and keeping five clean sheets in that span. That makes Club Brugge the most in-form team left in the Conference League by far.

Fiorentina vs Club Brugge Prediction

Draw at 3.60

These are great odds for a draw in this match. While many will favour Fiorentina as they are from the more renowned league, a draw here is not as crazy as many might think.

Fiorentina has not lost a home game in the Conference League this term. That is despite them losing the home legs of their quarterfinal and semifinal ties a year ago. Yet, Club Brugge has won all but one of their away games in the Conference League proper, showing just how difficult it is to beat them on their travels.

Fiorentina vs Club Brugge Tips

Both teams to score at 1.85

Goals should be expected from both sides in this clash. Fiorentina has scored in nine of their 10 games in the UECL proper. Moreover, Club Brugge has found the net in all of the main round matches in the competition.

Fiorentina may find it more difficult to break down Club in this tie though, given the Belgian side’s impressive defensive record of late. Blauw-Zwart have kept six clean sheets in their 10 UECL games this term, in comparison to Fiorentina’s four.
