Fiorentina vs Viktoria Plzen: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch

Last season's UEFA Europa Conference League runner-up Fiorentina will be aiming to book their spot in the semi-finals when they welcome Viktoria Plzen to Stadio Artemio Franchi on Thursday night.

It was a familiar tale of frustration for Fiorentina and their coach Vincenzo Italiano in the first-leg at Doosan Arena last week, as they bossed the ball but failed to penetrate their hosts' dogged defence, managing a lacklustre goalless draw.

With the Viola unlikely to make European competition next season via the league — they sit 10th in Serie A, seven points adrift of Atalanta — Fiorentina may have to win either their domestic cup or triumph in Europe to play on the continent next term.

On the other hand, FC Viktoria Plzen enjoyed a vital 1-0 defeat of Slavia Prague, but they sit in third place in the Czech First League and are some way off league leaders Sparta.

Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.

Team news & squads

Fiorentina team news

As Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Italiano has the rare luxury of an almost fully available squad, he will surely deploy his strongest starting XI in Thursday's Conference League contest after rotating his side in the 1-1 draw against Genoa over the weekend.

Lucas Beltran (three goals) is joint-top scorer for Fiorentina in the Conference League — along with Luca Ranieri and Antonin Barak — and Fiorentina hope the forward comes up trumps here.

Fiorentina possible XI: Terraciano; Kayode, Milenkovic, Ranieri, Biraghi; Mandragora, Bonaventura; Gonzalez, Beltran, Kouame; Belotti

Goalkeepers:Terracciano, Christensen, Martinelli, Vannucchi
Defenders:Martínez Quarta, Milenković, Biraghi, Dodô, Kayode, Parisi, Ranieri, Comuzzo
Midfielders:Arthur, Bonaventura, Ikoné, López, Barák, Infantino, Duncan, Castrovilli, Mandragora, Faraoni
Forwards:González, Belotti, Beltrán, Kouamé, Nzola, Sottil

Viktoria Plzen team news

The Czech side are fairly injury-riddled so a raft of changes aren't really much of an option, with Jan Sykora (knee), Jhon Mosquera (head), Erik Jirka (groin), Rafiu Durosinmi and Matej Valenta (both knee) all not expected to feature in the quarter-final second-leg clash.

Tomas Chory is Viktoria's leading scorer in the Conference League, and the forward hopes to add to his three goals this week.

Viktoria Plzen possible XI: Jedlicka; Kopic, Dweh, Hranac, Jamelka, Cadu; Cerv, Kalavach, Vydra; Chory, Sulc

Goalkeepers:Jedlička, Baier, Tvrdoň
Defenders:Dweh, Souare, Jemelka, Hejda, Hranáč, Havel, Řezník, Paluska
Midfielders:Šulc, Mosquera, Jirka, Traoré, Cadu, Kalvach, Sýkora, Kopic, Červ, Valenta
