Olympiacos FC make history as they advance to Europa Conference League final

·

Olympiacos FC made history on Friday morning, advancing to the Europa Conference League final for the first time in the club’s 99-year history.

Olympiacos defeated Aston Villa FC 2 – 0 on the night and 6-2 on aggregate. Both goals of the match were scored by Olympiacos’ Ayoub El Kaabi.

Aston Villa found themselves 1-0 down within 10 minutes as El Kaabi, who bagged a hat-trick in the first leg, converted from Quini’s clever cross.

That goal came against the run of play, as the Villans had been dominating possession, something they continued to do for the rest of the half but with little reward.

If the English had any hopes of getting back into the game, they were dashed thanks to Constantis Tzolakis. Twice the 22-year-old goalkeeper had to intervene and was effective on both occasions.

In the 78th minute, El Kaabi made it 2-0 and the Greek team began exactly as they had ended: with the Moroccan seeing his goal initially disallowed for offside, but ultimately awarded through VAR.

The Greek team will play Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League final on May 30 in Athens, Greece.
