At 9pm Olympiacos-Fiorentina: over 6000 police officers deployed in Athens, the latest


There is less and less left until the kick-off of Olympiacos-Fiorentina, the Conference League final scheduled for this evening in Athens at 9pm. According to what has been gathered by TMW, over 6,000 police officers will be deployed for the match, but not all of them in the stadium area. They will also be at the metro stops to avoid errors that send fans to different areas than the pre-established ones, but also at critical access points and to avoid contact between AEK and Olympiacos fans.

HOW OLYMPIACOS ARRIVES – The number one threat is called Ayoub El Kaabi, top scorer of the competition with 10 goals scored (33 overall). Mendilibar is betting strongly on the 4-3-3 and relying on the scoring streak of the Moroccan center forward to play another trick on the Italians, after beating Mourinho’s Roma leading Sevilla in the 2023 Europa League final won on penalties. The main doubt concerns the midfield: Chiquinho and Carvalho are competing for a shirt. The former Jovetic towards the bench, the trident should be completed by Podence and Fortounis.

HOW FIORENTINA ARRIVES – Lineup made for Italian: the Viola coach leaves himself a small margin regarding the choice of the central defender destined to pair with Martinez Quarta (Milenkovic is favored over Ranieri) and that of the man to place behind Belotti: the winner will be with with in all likelihood Beltran, with Bonaventura moving back to the midfield alongside Arthur. If so outside Mandragora. Terracciano plays in goal, with the wings entrusted to Dodò and captain Biraghi. Nico Gonzalez and Kouame complete the trio of attacking midfielders behind Gallo. Thin only one unavailable.
