Basel 1-3 Fiorentina: Serie A side score last-gasp winner in extra time to seal place in Europa Conference League final


Fiorentina will play West Ham in the Europa Conference League final after beating Basel 3-1 on Thursday to secure a 4-3 win on aggregate.

Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, a double by Nico Gonzalez either side of Zeki Amdouni’s strike sent the tie into extra time where Antonin Barak’s goal nine minutes into stoppage time sent the Serie A side through.

Gonzalez opened the scoring with a header from Cristiano Biraghi’s corner.

Basel restored their one-goal advantage on aggregate courtesy of Amdouni’s strike from a tight angle, but the drama was just about to begin.

A reaction finish from Gonzalez ensured there would be extra time and Fiorentina struck in the dying moments when Barak drilled in from close range.

The final will take place in Prague on Wednesday, June 7 and Fiorentina – currently occupying eighth place in Serie A – also have the Coppa Italia final against Inter on Wednesday, May 24.
