The action gets going on Wednesday 8 May in the UEFA Europa Conference League, as Club Brugge welcome Fiorentina to the Jan Breydel Stadium. The Italian visitors hold a narrow 3-2 lead from the first leg in Florence last week, and coach Vincenzo Italiano wants his team to focus on finishing the job.
“Now we need to be very tactically disciplined,” said Italiano. “We need to work well technically and I’m sure we’ll have our chances. We need to be concrete in attack and more careful in defence. It will be an important game because we are playing to reach a final.”
The other Europa Conference League match takes place on Thursday 9 May, as Aston Villa look to make a comeback away to Olympiakos in Athens, having suffered a surprise 4-2 loss at home in the first leg.
“[We] Just [made] mistakes all round. So, of course, we’re going to take responsibility, but it’s up to us to go to Athens next week and turn it around because I know we’re capable,” said Villa captain John McGinn.
Thursday will also see the second-leg matches in the UEFA Europa League with Bayer Leverkusen holding a 2-0 advantage ahead of hosting Roma in Germany, while Atlanta and Olympique Marseille will meet in Bergamo with their tie delicately balanced at 1-1.
Bayer coach Xabi Alonso noted, “[Winning] 2-0 is a good result; we go home happy but cautious. What we are doing in this season is outstanding. We have quality players with a very high level of focus. The most difficult thing is to be consistent. We don’t want to stop – we want to go on like this until the end of the season.”
Marseille midfielder Jordan Veretout, meanwhile, believes his side can triumph in Italy: “We will need to put in a big performance, go there and show what we can do, and play how we played here. We know we won’t be alone. We will have our supporters behind us and we are capable of doing great things. I think we have the quality. We will go there with a positive attitude and with confidence that we can win the match.”
