UEFA Europa Conference League Final betting tips and predictions

Over 2.5 goals - 23/20

Fiorentina have reached the Europa Conference League final for the second season running and La Viola were stunned by Jarrod Bowen's late winner for West Ham in Prague last term.

The England international struck in the 89th minute to seal a 2-1 victory for the Hammers and another dramatic final is expected when Fiorentina face Olympiacos in Athens.

The Greek side showcased their attacking qualities in spectacular fashion in their semi-final success against Aston Villa, who had been ante-post favourites for the Conference League.

Unai Emery's side finished fourth in the Premier League, securing a place in the 2024/25 Champions League, but they were blown away by Olympiacos, who won 4-2 at Villa Park thanks to a hat-trick from striker Ayoub El Kaabi.

Any hopes of a second-leg comeback from Villa were snuffed out as El Kaabi scored in the 10th and 78th minutes to give the Greeks a 6-2 aggregate win.

Olympiacos have scored at least twice in 10 of their last 13 matches in all competitions, dating back to an astonishing 6-1 extra-time victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv in the second leg of their Conference League last-16 tie.

The Israeli side had won the first leg 4-1 in Greece but Olympiacos led 3-0 at half-time in the return fixture before wrapping up the tie with two goals in extra-time.

A 3-2 first-leg win over Fenerbahce followed in the quarter-finals and, despite the added tension of a final, over 2.5 goals looks an appealing bet.

It has been a winning wager in Fiorentina's last five Serie A matches, including a 5-1 win over Sassuolo and a 3-2 victory at Cagliari last time out, and La Viola beat Club Brugge 4-3 on aggregate in an entertaining semi-final.

Olympiacos to lift the trophy - 11/10

Olympiacos's semi-final display against Aston Villa will have given them great confidence going into the showdown at the AEK Arena – a venue they know well from domestic fixtures against AEK Athens.

Fiorentina look a little short in the betting to lift the trophy given the attacking firepower of their opponents and their own defensive deficiencies.

La Viola have lost four of their five European finals and another near miss could be on the cards as they have not kept a clean sheet in their last eight matches, conceding 15 goals.

They are unbeaten in Europe this term but have not been entirely convincing, edging past Maccabi Haifa 5-4 on aggregate in the last 16 and needing extra-time to see off 10-man Viktoria Plzen in the quarter-finals. 

Kostas Fortounis to score or assist a goal - 15/8

Olympiacos striker El Kaabi has been the star of the show in this season's Conference League, scoring 10 goals in eight appearances in the competition.

He also notched three times in five Europa League group-stage outings in the autumn and is 11/2 to be the first goalscorer in the final.

However, much of El Kaabi's success is due to the creative players around him and playmaker Kostas Fortounis is worth backing to score or assist a goal on Wednesday.

The Olympiacos captain contributed one goal and five assists in six Europa League appearances this season before racking up 22 attempts at goal in eight Conference League games.

He scored important goals against Maccabi Tel Aviv and Fenerbahce and, having claimed another three assists during the Conference League knockout stage, he looks capable of troubling the Fiorentina defence.
