West Ham Vs Fiorentina Predictions, Head-to-Head, Team News, Predicted Lineup and Score

Initial Observations and Head-to-Head

Both teams want to break a trophy drought in the Wednesday Europa Conference League final between Fiorentina and West Ham United at Prague’s Fortuna Arenathe Wednesday Europa Conference League final. The groups meet in the capital of the Czech Republic, with the Hammers having waited nearly twice as long and the Viola having won their last trophy about 22 years ago. Roma, the competition’s first-place finishers, will be followed by one as the top scorers square off against unblemished opponents. When Fiorentina steps out on Wednesday night, they will become the first club to compete in all four UEFA club competition finals, thirty years after their most previous participation in a European final, a defeat to Serie A rivals Juventus in the 1990 UEFA Cup showpiece.

Vincenzo Italiano’s team, who have greatly paved their way to Prague this year, will way to Prague in remarkable fashion this year, will also follow in the footsteps of Viola teams who have appeared in the European Cup and Cup-Winners’ Cup finals. Fiorentina are easily the top scorers in the Europa Conference League with almost 36 goals in 14 games, nine more than West Ham in second place despite having played two more games. The Viola have scored at least three goals on each of their previous six European road trips, winning each time, with Brazilian striker Arthur Cabral heading the pace with seven goals so far, 21 of which were scored away from home.

West Ham Team News

Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal both participated in matches at the Fortuna Arena while playing for the same team, and the two are expected to start for West Ham in midweek. Declan Rice, the captain of the English team, will probably call it a career with the Hammers before moving on to new opportunities this summer, joining Soucek in the team’s engine room. Alphonse Areola, a custodian for the cup, takes the place of Lukas Fabianski, the Premier League’s top choice. Gianluca Scamacca, who was recently linked with a summer loan transfer back to Serie A, is expected to be the lone absence for West Ham due to knee surgery. Michail Antonio then takes the lead after starting practically unopposed.

Fiorentina Team News

Vincenzo Italiano rotated his Fiorentina team again over the weekend to keep important players healthy for Wednesday’s championship game. Now that most of his players are available, he must choose his strongest starting lineup. Only backup custodian Salvatore Sirigu is out due to injury, while Nicolas Gonzalez, who scored the Viola’s final Serie A goal by colliding with the goalpost, should be able to start. Although other positions in Italiano’s offensive unit seem up for grabs, the Argentina winger should support center striker Arthur Cabral from the right after scoring twice in the victory against Basel last month. Czech playmaker Antonin Barak, who won the semi-final match against the hosts of the final, is one of the contenders.

Terracciano; Dodo, Martinez Quarta, Milenkovic, Biraghi; Amrabat, Mandragora; Gonzalez, Bonaventura, Ikone; Cabral

Areola; Kehrer, Aguerd, Zouma, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Paqueta, Benrahma; Antonio
