Conference League: Fiorentina complete a ‘ball’ that no one else in Europe has achieved
Fiorentina’s luck. The painful victory over Basel (1-3) in extra time will allow the Violas Playing a European final after 33 years!!!
However, Fiorentina can boast of completing an unprecedented “pker” in football history: It is the only team that has qualified for the final of the four major European tournaments (European/Champions Cup, UEFA Cup/Europa League, Extinct Cup Winners’ Cup and Conference).

Fiorentina’s “golden age” began in 1957, when They reached the final of the second edition of the European Cup.But they lost to Real Madrid (2-0) at the Santiago Bernabeu. Alfredo Di Stefano and Francisco Gento scored a goal.
Another Spanish team crossed the aisles again “viola”. It was, this time, in the 1961-62 Cup Winners’ Cup Final. Hamren equalized Bear’s goal (1-1) in the final at Hampden Park. In the tie-break there was no colour: Atlético won 3-0 With goals from Miguel Jones, Mendona and Pierre.
Fiorentina completed playing poker with triples UEFA Cup Final 1989-90 against their fiercest rivals: Juventus. The first match with a score of 3-1 – Renato Boso’s goal was useless – was an insurmountable wall for the team, at that time led by Roberto Baggio and Dunga. The return ended 0-0.
