Raphael Onyedika is likely to be watching this game from the stands

The race to reach the UEFA Europa Conference League final is heating up. In the first leg of one of the semi-finals, we saw Club Brugge and Fiorentina ending up with five goals in total scored for the night. The game however ended in a 3-2 defeat for Nicky Hayen’s side. Also, defensive midfielder Raphael Onyedika who was sent off last game won’t be featuring in this home tie.

Fiorentina surely were in a sigh of relief by the final whistle. Substitute M’Bala Nzola’s added-time goal gave them the win. Prior to it, for 30 minutes, the game was locked in a 2-2 stalemate. The Italian team will now travel to Belgium and fight for at least a draw, which eventually lands them the ticket to the finals in Greece.

Kick-Off:

Wednesday, 8 May 2024 at 5:45 PM UK (10:15 PM IST)

Location: Jan Breydel Stadium

Form

Club Brugge (in all competitions): W-L-W-W-W

Players to Watch

Hans Vanaken (Club Brugge)

The 31-year-old Belgian footballer was playing as the second striker behind forward Igor Thiago in the 4-4-1-1 formation in the last meeting. Both of them scored a goal that game and should be seen in a similar role here. Hans Vanaken so far has scored five goals while also providing an assist in their UECL run.

M’Bala Nzola (Fiorentina)

In the first leg which was played at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Italy, M’Bala Nzola’s goal was the difference maker. After coming on a substitute in the 88-minute mark on the clock, Nzola scored in the 90+1 minute. Head coach Vincenzo Italiano should give him the license to attack the opponent’s goal from the first whistle this time out.
