“This year’s final is different from last year, we will be more prepared emotionally.”

Fiorentina are back in the Conference League final a year after defeat to West Ham, and Pietro Terrazzano believes the Viola men have all learned from the painful defeat in Prague.

The 2022-23 season can be written in golden letters in Fiorentina’s history after participating in two finals, but the end was bittersweet as they lost the Conference League Cup to West Ham and the Italian Cup in a duel with Inter.

This year, the Viola have had a second chance at European level, after an excellent run to once again reach the final of the Conference League, where Vincenzo Italiano’s side are now invited to beat Olympiacos on the evening of May 29 at the AEK Arena. To win the cup.

For Pietro Terrazzano, something like this is possible because Fiorentina has the knowledge from last year’s defeat. “Conference final?

The waiting increases day by day, and in quiet moments you feel it more. Now we have an important commitment in Cagliari, then we will go directly to Athens to participate in the final, which is very important for us.

In the meantime we have to focus on the league because that gives you confidence that you will also play the new season in Europe.

“Obviously there are already signals within the team about the final, it is something very important for us and for the city, and naturally there are most of the ideas there.” The experienced porter confirmed this in an interview with an Italian radio station, and added:

“After last year’s final, we already know what awaits us, and what we experienced last year in terms of emotions will give us a very big help for this year’s final.

Emotionally, we will arrive more prepared. It will be a different match compared to last year. “At the end of the day, every final is a special match, and the ones that came before it have relatively little importance.”
