Olympiacos will face Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League final following Ayoub El Kaabi’s brilliant performance that secured a 6-2 aggregate win against Aston Villa.

In a remarkable 4-2 triumph at Villa Park, El Kaabi’s crucial brace helped Olympiacos take a lead, with the striker finding the net early in the first leg and completing his tally later to eliminate any chance of a Villa comeback.

Despite Villa’s dominance in possession, El Kaabi’s early goal in the second leg at Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki put Olympiacos in control, as the visitors struggled to break through the resilient home side.

Though Villa had several attempts, including Douglas Luiz’s long-range shot and Moussa Diaby’s effort, it was El Kaabi who sealed the deal with a late goal, securing Olympiacos’ place in the final against Fiorentina.

Villa’s dreams of a comeback were shattered, and now Olympiacos will battle Fiorentina at the Agia Sophia Stadium in Athens on May 29, aiming to secure their first major European title.
