All eyes were of course on Anderlecht and AA Gent on Thursday evening as far as the Conference League is concerned, but the other quarter-finals were not unimportant either. Below the reports of Fiorentina-Lech Poznan and Nice-Basel. If a Belgian team reaches the final, one of these teams will be the opponent.

Fiorentina-Lech Poznan 2-3 (6-4 on aggregate)

For Fiorentina, the semi-finals actually seemed almost in: the Italians won 1-4 last week against Lech Poznan, the team of old acquaintance John van den Brom. The Argentine wing forward Nicolás González was the big man with two goals.

The second leg went a lot less smoothly for the team from Florence. After less than ten minutes of play, Afonso Sousa put the visitors ahead with a nice goal, Kristoffer Velde doubled the score from the spot a little over the hour and a few minutes later Artur Sobiech put the 0-3 on the board.

Unlikely, so we had tension again… until Fiorentina poked against in minute 78 through Riccardo Sottli. Van den Brom’s team lost courage and finally swallowed Gaetano Catrovilli’s 2-3 in injury time. Fiorentina are in the semi-finals, but this means an end to their series of nine victories in a row in Europe.
