  • Ayoub El Kaabi, the Moroccan international, secured a historic victory for Olympiacos in the Europa Conference League final, scoring the winning goal in extra time against Fiorentina
  • This triumph marked the first-ever European success for a Greek team
  • He is the competition’s top scorer with 11 goals scored

Moroccan international Ayoub El Kaabi delivered a fitting conclusion to his remarkable season at Olympiacos, propelling the Greek side to success in the Europa Conference League.

Played on Wednesday May 29, the final match went into extra time after a goalless 90 minutes, and it was El Kaabi’s late winner that sealed the victory.

Former Fiorentina star Stevan Jovetic had a chance to break the deadlock for Olympiacos in extra time, but a strong save denied him.

After 116 minutes, Ayoub El Kaabi secured Olympiacos’ first-ever European trophy by heading home a cross beyond Fiorentina’s goalkeeper, Pietro Terracciano. His 11th goal of the competition proved to be the most valuable.

The goal underwent a lengthy VAR review, but it was ultimately confirmed, sparking wild celebrations among the Olympiacos players and fans.

Olympiacos’ triumph marked the first European success for a Greek team. They will now compete in the Europa League next season.

The victory was made even sweeter by claiming the trophy on home soil in Greece, at the expense of domestic rivals AEK Athens. El Kaabi’s heroics will be remembered as a defining moment in the club’s history.

The 30-year-old has netted 18 goals offering two assists in 31 appearances for the Olympiacos this season.
