Fiorentina are preparing for the Europa Conference League final against West Ham United and some doubts remain about the starting XI.
It will start in Prague on Wednesday June 7 at 20.00:19.00 UK time (XNUMX:XNUMX GMT).
The winners will not only lift the trophy, which was won by Serie A side Roma last season, but also automatically qualify for the Europa League.
The Violas have several alternatives to consider before the game, including choosing between Igor and Lucas Martinez-Quarta on defense to partner Nikola Milenkovic.
Dodo and captain Cristiano Biraghi are solid in their full-back positions.
Sofyan Amrabat and Rolando Mandragora seem safe in midfield, probably with Giacomo Bonaventura acting as the link between them and the forwards.
Nico Gonzalez is the only one guaranteed to start up front, even if he collided hard with the post while scoring a diving header in Friday’s win over Sassuolo and strained his hip.
The rest is up for grabs as Luka Jovic and Arthur Cabral battle for the center forward spot, plus Riccardo Saponara, Jonathan Ikone and Christian Kouame all pushing for a spot.
Antonin Barak was out on Friday with flu symptoms but has now recovered.
Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Italiano has rotated constantly throughout the season, so his line-up choices tend to be rather unpredictable.
La Viola went on a nine-game winning streak in the Conference League and lost just one game away from Stadio Franchi, 3-0 at Istanbul Basaksehkir on 15 September.
They started the preliminary round against FC Twente on 18 August and also reached the Coppa Italia final, losing to Inter.
It means the Conference League Final will be its 60thth official match of the season.
