Olympiacos vs Fiorentina: Conference League final prediction, team news, kick-off time, TV, h2h, odds today

Olympiacos are at the home of their greatest rivals for today’s Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina.

The Serie A side make their second consecutive trip to this showpiece having lost to West Ham in Prague a year ago.

Athens will play host this time around and Olympiacos will hope to bank on plenty of home support, although inside the stadium of rivals AEK Athens there may be some locals backing Fiorentina.

Olympiacos stormed into the final by knocking favourites Aston Villa out in a huge upset, having also seen off Fenerbahce and overturned a 4-1 first-leg deficit to knock Maccabi Tel-Aviv out in the last-16.

Fiorentina have not lost a game through this year’s tournament having topped their group before overcoming Club Brugge in the last round.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Olympiacos vs Fiorentina is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Wednesday, May 29, 2024.

The match will take place at the AEK Arena in Athens.
