Udinese Calcio v ACF Fiorentina - Serie A
Fiorentina and Basaksehir meet for the first time

Istanbul Basaksehir host Fiorentina at the Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadium on matchday two of the Europa Conference League on Thursday, looking to extend their winning run to six games in all competitions.

The Grey Owls are in a rich vein of form right now and opened their European campaign last week with a 4-0 drubbing of Scottish team Hearts.

Goals from Hasan Ali Kaldirim, Youssouf Ndayishimiye, Stefano Okaka and Berkay Ozcan helped the Istanbul outfit to an easy victory which put them at the top of the group.

Fiorentina, meanwhile, were held to a 1-1 draw by RFS on the opening day, with Antonin Barak's second-half goal canceled out by Andrej Illic's strike to secure an unlikely point for the Latvian outfit.

Istanbul Basaksehir vs Fiorentina Prediction

Istanbul Basaksehir are on a better run of form right now, winning their last few games with strong attacking intent and a stoic defense.

Fiorentina, contrastingly, are going through a rough patch, failing to win any of their last seven games in all competitions and scoring only thrice.

The hosts will obviously feel more confident in their chances here and we predict a narrow victory for them.

Prediction: Istanbul Basaksehir 2-1 Fiorentina
