Fiorentina got off to a comfortable start, as Coach Paulo Sousa’s debut was a 10-0 victory over local Trentino Team.
The former Basel boss made his first appearance on the bench, but missed big players including Borja Valero, Joaquin, Josip Ilicic, Giuseppe Rossi and Stefan Savic.
The Viola started out with a 3-5-2 system, though with Ahmed Hegazi playing almost between defence and midfield lines.
Bakic opened the scoring with a curling finish, quickly followed by Gondo and a Michele Camporese volley.
