Match Summaries and Results

Aston Villa and Fiorentina are two fancied teams in the UEFA Conference League and after impressing in the group stages, they’ll want to push on and perform well.

PAOK Salonika could be dark horses for the competition after impressing in the group stages where they won five of their six games.

Key Matchups to Watch

Aston Villa and Ajax are both European Cup winners and their fixture will be the standout tie of the round when things kick back off. Villa have been in excellent form this season, and Ajax will need to be at their best if they want to beat them.

Fiorentina are another team worth keeping an eye on and they’ll be confident they can progress against Maccabi Haifa.

Venue Information

Villa Park is a proud venue, and they’ll create a brilliant atmosphere when they welcome Ajax for a huge European night.

Two Greek sides remain in the tournament, and it’s well known that excellent support takes place in that region and that could give Olympiacos and PAOK an advantage to progress.

Road to the Round of 16

PAOK were superb in the group stages. The Greek side racked up 16 points in a group that contained Eintracht Frankfurt and they’ll be aiming to build on that.

Fiorentina made it so through the group easily and after missing out in the final last year, they’ll want to go one better.

Aston Villa are favourites for the trophy, but can they live up to their promise after dominating in the groups.

Pre-match Analysis and Predictions

Aston Villa and Fiorentina, are considered the two favourites for the competition, and they’ll want to live up to that tag by going all the way in this competition.

Ajax often go far in European tournaments, but will poor form at him home prevent them from pushing on in the competition?

PAOK have proven themselves in Europe in the group stages, but can they match that form when it matters in the knockout phase.
