Team News

Vincenzo Italiano will be looking to field his strongest possible XI for the final. Fiorentina’s only injured player is backup goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu. Additionally, Nicolas Gonzalez should be fit enough to start despite crashing into the goalpost while scoring the Viola’s final goal of the season.

The Argentine winger has netted twice in the previous month’s win over Basel, and he could support central striker Arthur Cabral from the right. However, other positions in Italiano’s attacking unit are still up for grabs.

Czech playmaker Antonin Barak will most likely be among those considered for the final. He scored the crucial winning goal in the semi-final and previously played for final hosts Slavia Prague.

Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal both played for the same club at Fortuna Arena and should feature for West Ham United during this mid-week fixture. The team’s captain, Declan Rice – who has been linked with moving away from the Hammers this summer – will most likely sign off and feature in the engine room alongside Soucek. Additionally, cup goalkeeper Alphonse Areola will replace Premier League first-choice Lukas Fabianski.

Gianluca Scamacca, who was recently linked with a loan move back to Serie A, will be West Ham’s only absentee as he recently underwent knee surgery. Therefore, Michail Antonio starts up front as his replacement.
