Prediction: 0-0

The Conference League final between Fiorentina and West Ham is set to take place on Wednesday, June 7th at Eden Park in Prague. Fiorentina, aiming to bring the cup back to Italy after Roma’s success last year, will face West Ham, who were already considered strong contenders before the tournament began. This match holds great significance for both teams, as it not only guarantees a trophy but also grants the winner a place in the Europa League, which is particularly important since both teams did not qualify for European competitions in their respective leagues. Fiorentina finished eighth in Serie A, while West Ham finished fourteenth in the Premier League.

Fiorentina enters the final with two consecutive wins, defeating Sassuolo 3-1 and Roma 2-1, which served as a redemption following their loss to Inter in the Italian Cup final (2-1). In the Conference League, Fiorentina eliminated Basel, Braga, Sivasspor, and Lech Poznan to reach the final. West Ham is currently in a strong form, having gone eleven matches without a draw. They suffered a 2-1 defeat to relegated Leicester in their last league game but previously won against Leeds and AZ Alkmaar. In the European competitions, West Ham eliminated Gent and AEK Larnaca.

Fiorentina’s only injury concern is Sirigu, while all the regular starters are available. Cabral, who has scored seven goals in the Conference League, will lead the attack, supported by Nico Gonzalez, who has found the net four times in the last three games, as well as Bonaventura and Ikonè, both of whom scored in the previous encounter against Roma. The coach is likely to field the Milenkovic-Martinez Quarta partnership in midfield, with Mandragora and Amrabat in defense.

As for West Ham, Scamacca will be absent due to injury, and Antonio, who has scored six goals in the Conference League, will be the center forward. In the 4-2-3-1 formation, Fornals, who has scored twice in the last four matches, Paquetà (formerly of Milan), and Benrahma will play as attacking midfielders. It is expected to be Declan Rice’s final game for West Ham, as he has attracted interest from numerous big clubs in the Premier League and beyond. Ogbonna, the other Italian in the squad, is unlikely to feature in defense.

  • Recent statistics indicate that both teams have been involved in matches with goals from both sides.
  • Fiorentina’s last five games have ended with both teams scoring, and in their last four Conference League matches, West Ham has both conceded and scored at least one goal.
  • Fiorentina has scored in six consecutive games, while in the Conference League; they have been involved in five consecutive matches with goals from both teams.
  • The two top goal-scorers of the tournament, Cabral with 7 goals and Antonio with 6, will also be on the field.

In light of the fact that both West Ham United and Fiorentina have shown that they are capable of playing at a high level, it is reasonable to assume that they will have some difficulty scoring goals in the next meeting between the two teams.
