West Ham's road to the Conference League final: Every goal

What do you need to know?

Fiorentina have not won a major European title since the 1960/61 European Cup Winners' Cup, but the Viola can dare to dream in Prague. They have firepower like no other side in the Europa Conference League this season, having scored 36 goals in 14 games en route to the final (including seven for competition top scorer Arthur Cabral).

Meet the finalists

Semi-finalists in the Europa League last season, David Moyes's West Ham have gone a step further in the Europa Conference League and a first major continental success since 1965 is in sight. They may have reason to feel at home in Prague too: both Tomáš Souček and Vladimír Coufal played at Eden Arena during their time at Slavia Praha.

Expert predictions

Paolo Menicucci, Fiorentina reporter
This is Fiorentina's first European final in 32 years, and Vincenzo Italiano's side will be under some pressure as they aim to win the club's first continental title since 1961. However, they have showed throughout the campaign that they can always create chances (they have had 259 attempts on goal, 83 more than their nearest rivals Gent) and score plenty (36 so far, nine more than second-ranked West Ham). If it all clicks in Prague, West Ham will be in for an extremely torrid night.

Lynsey Hooper, West Ham reporter
The Hammers are in their first major European final for 47 years, but they are not content with just making it to Prague. Across this campaign the east London side have been the team to beat, maintaining an unbeaten record and only drawing once. Lifting the trophy would see them finish the season in the strongest possible way.

View from the camps

Vincenzo Italiano, Fiorentina coach: "When we got to the stadium, my first thoughts were the start of this path; the play-offs in the Netherlands, and the 14 difficult games which gave us the chance to come here to play for a trophy. It was an incredible journey in which we grew match by match. West Ham were one of the strongest teams in the tournament and they proved that by reaching the final. They have top-quality players, very strong. But we also reached the final so we are also strong and we are here to play all our cards. We are ready."

Italiano: 'Every detail counts'

David Moyes, West Ham coach: "To be in a European final for any manager is a thrill. Hopefully it's a start [for West Ham] – I've always said I think the best years are to come – but I'm certainly enjoying the moment. I've been hugely impressed by Fiorentina; their form since the World Cup has been very good. They've already got to one final [in the Coppa Italia] so that tells me they've got something. A difficult opponent; an Italian opponent is always difficult, so we respect that."
