There is action in the Europa Conference League this Thursday. The likes of West Ham, Anderlecht, and Fiorentina will all look to do well in the European competition.
English side West Ham will put their relegation worries aside. The Hammers have done well in David Moyes tenure in charge of them with a cup being the one thing that they lack.
They can put that aside by winning the Conference League this season and should have too much in the tank and overcome Gent.
Anderlecht will look to put Belgian football on the map. While the Belgium national team has performed well over the past ten years on the international stage, clubs from the country have struggled to do so on the continental stage. Anderlecht are the nation’s best hope and are capable of beating AZ Alkmaar.
Basel will fight against Nice but could find the goings too difficult against the French side who play more high-intensity football.
This has the makings of a game that will produce a lot of goals.
Fiorentina should be able to overcome Lech Poznan comfortably due to the superior quality of players in the Italian side. The side from Florence will be looking to become the second consecutive Italian side to win the competition after their counterparts Roma did so last season.
Anytime Goal Scorers
West Ham- Pablo Fornals- The Spaniard can be dangerous, especially in the Europa League as opposition teams from outside England may struggle to deal with his cut-ins from out wide.
Fiorentina- Arthur Cabral- He is the Italian team’s top scorer this season and will be their best hope of scoring as he is their most clinical outlet in front of goal.
