Another exciting final clash on the horizon

Olympiacos and Fiorentina will lock horns with each other in the UEFA Europa Conference League 2023-24 Final at the AEK Arena, Athens. Only having to travel down the road on Wednesday night as they arrive in Athens, the Greek giants will certainly feel that they hold a real hometown advantage here.

Olympiacos secured their spot in the final by beating Aston Villa by 6-2 over two legs, and they are surely full of confidence going into this crucial fixture. Olympiakos finished 3rd in the Greek Super League, but they could end the campaign on a high by lifting this trophy after a brilliant run to the final.

As for Fiorentina, suffering Europa Conference League heartbreak last season as they suffered a 2-1 loss at the hands of West Ham, the Viola are desperate to go one step further this time around. Fiorentina have had some defensive issues at the back as they have conceded a lot of goals and it will be difficult for them to stop the strong Olympiacos attack. The Italian side needs to give their all to win this piece of Silverware away from home.

Players to Watch

Kostas Fortounis (Olympiacos)

He is always eager to get the ball and dictate the game in every phase of the attack, he is a very technical player with strong ball-carrying, passing, and crossing abilities. He creates a lot of chances for his teams and is a big threat to the opposition teams. His ability to deliver pinpoint balls in the final third is one of his biggest attributes.

Gaetano Castrovilli (Fiorentina)

Castrovilli doesn’t hesitate to link up with his teammates and creates passing triangles all across the opposition’s half. He would look for players surrounding him by stopping the play for a few seconds then use one-two combinations to progress the ball up the pitch.

Two of his standout attributes that he constantly shows are his positioning and spatial awareness. He also tends to arrive late in the final third, giving him a clear perspective on the attacking situation.

  • In each of Fiorentina’s last eight games, both teams scored.
  • Ayoub El Kaabi has scored in seven of his last nine European appearances.
