West Ham United to end title drought

West Ham United is hoping to finally end their long title drought with a win against ACF Fiorentina in the Conference League finals. Just like West Ham, Fiorentina is also aiming to end their title drought, with a win in this match. West Ham last lifted a title in the European stage during the FA Cup in 1980. Fiorentina on the other hand last won a title in the European stage way back 1961, where they bagged the title for the Cup Winners. With that, expect that these two teams is more than ready for a tough battle, as only one can lift another European trophy. The finals match between West Ham and Fiorentina will be on June 8, 2023, at 3:00 AM (GMT+8).

These two teams only had two matches prior to this match, and from those matches, it was Fiorentina who holds an excellent record. They have won those two matches, putting West Ham without a win against them. Additionally, it looks like Fiorentina has a good momentum, as they are unbeaten in four of their last five games. That defeat is a 2-1 loss against Inter Milan, during their Coppa Italia final, which is not surprising. As for West Ham, they are coming into this match without a good momentum, conceding nine goals in their last five. Additionally, they only have one clean sheet in this period, from a 1-0 win against AZ Alkmaar.

West Ham finished their Premier League campaign at the 14th of the league table, because of how underwhelming their season.

They are still fortunate though that they were able to reach the finals of the Conference League. Coming into this match, West Ham is from a 2-1 narrow defeat against Leicester City, ending their campaign in the Premier League. Aside from aiming to bounce back in this match, they are also looking to add a European trophy in their list. It has been more than four decades since they last won a title, making them eager to win here. It is not impossible though, considering how impressive their squad is this season.

Fiorentina on the other hand were able to secure the eighth spot in the Serie A league table before the season ends.
