Fiorentina take on West Ham at the Fortuna Arena on Wednesday. Months of competing have come to a climax, as these two teams now get to decide who takes home the trophy in the Europa Conference League this season.

Fiorentina have played two more matches than West Ham to make their way to the final, and they have not done it without drama. In the quarter-finals they won big away from home against Lech Poznan only to lose big on their own turf. They managed to grind through, though, just like they did in the semifinal. Here, they managed to squander a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 at home to Basel in the first leg, only to make amends away from home. But only after extra-time.

No such drama has been apparent for West Ham who has had as close to smooth sailing as one comes in a European competition. Their initial home win in the first leg of the semifinals wasn't big against AZ, but it was big enough as they hung on in the return leg.

There are no shortage of goals, when Fiorentina enter the pitch, as they pulled off a stunning average of 2.7 goals per game in this tournament. An excellent total of 27 goals scored, while allowing 11 goals against. The latter makes an average of 1.1 conceded per game. During this run, they fought their way to a clean sheet three times.

West Ham are brimming with confidence in front of goal before the upcoming match in the Europa Conference League, as they show off very handsome numbers from their previous ten games. They scored 2.1 on average per match, for a total of 21 goals in this tournament. They also let in four goals, leaving an average of 0.4 per match. Furthermore, they fought their way to a clean sheet six times.
