Italiano believes Fiorentina can harness the “bitterness” of their 2023 Europa Conference League final loss for motivation and redemption

Fiorentina is hoping to top last year’s performance in the Europa Conference League final, squaring off against Olympiacos in their home city.

Vincenzo Italiano wants his team to harness the “bitterness” of their loss to West Ham in last year’s final, a 2-1 defeat in Prague that saw them miss out on lifting the trophy.

Despite not losing a match in this year’s competition, Fiorentina is looking to avenge their previous defeat and secure the win against Club Brugge.

Italiano is optimistic about his team’s chances this time around, believing that the experience from the previous final will serve as a valuable lesson.

On the other side, Olympiacos is aiming to etch their name in history by becoming the first Greek team to win a European trophy.

Coach Jose Luis Mendilibar, previously successful with Sevilla, has taken the reigns of Olympiacos and hopes to maintain their winning strategy for the final against Fiorentina.

Mendilibar emphasized the importance of staying true to their game plan and not deviating from the successful formula that brought them to this point.

The coach highlighted that this journey has been like a marathon, with ups and downs, but they have finally reached the pinnacle of the competition.
