Fiorentina Player Ratings vs West Ham: Jack Solid, Biraghi Nightmare

It was heartbreaking way for Fiorentina to end their campaign, as they lost 2-1 to West Ham in the Europa Conference League final. Jarrod Bowen beat the offside trap to score the winner in the 90th minute to give the English side their second European trophy.

Here are the player ratings for La Viola, who have now lost two finals in the space of two weeks.

Pietro Terracciano – 6.5

Once again, Terracciano had a more than solid match for his side. Hard to fault him for either goal, though perhaps some more critical people may argue he would want the second goal back.

Cristiano Biraghi – 3.5

The Fiorentina skipper had a match to forget. From causing the penalty (via a handball) to playing Bowen onside for the winner, it was an underwhelming showing from Biraghi. Being pelted with cups during the match did not help either.

Luca Ranieri – 5.5

Ranieri had a decent game, helping to keep Michail Antonio at bay. Was a surprise starter in the Fiorentina 11, and would be replaced during the second half.

Nikola Milenkovic – 6

The Serb had his hands full with Antonio as well, constantly being involved in duels with the Jamaican. All things considered, Milenkovic did a decent job in curtailing Antonio’s effect in the match.

Dodô – 4

The Brazilian was rather disappointing as he failed to make any meaningful impact on the game, particularly from an attacking standpoint.

Sofyan Amrabat – 6.5

Amrabat was his ever-present self in the midfield, running around the pitch and winning back the ball. While the Moroccan did not do enough on the attacking side of things, his defensive work was stellar.

Rolando Mandragora – 5.5

Mandragora seemed like a passenger for much of the game, failing to truly get involved. He was brought off in stoppage time as the Viola attempted to find their equalizer.

Giacomo Bonaventura – 7.5

As always, Bonaventura was the star for Fiorentina in the midfield. The Italian scored the goal to return the game to parity. Running up and down the field, Bonaventura kept up the high energy needed. Unfortunately for him and his side, it was not enough in the end.

Nicolas González – 6.5

Nico was not as effective as he was in the Coppa Italia showpiece a fortnight ago. That said, the Argentinian did get the assist to tie the game. Outside of that, he just did not create enough chances on the night.

Luka Jovic – 4.5

Jovic could count himself unlucky not to have opened the scoring. The striker was flagged for offside just before halftime as he put the ball in the net. That aside, he was rather quiet, occasionally dropping deep to get some touches on the ball. Italiano replaced him for Arthur Cabral at halftime.

Christian Kouamé – 4

Another surprise starter in the side, Kouamé also did not provide enough impact on the game. The Ivorian did not look like the threat he can be, which resulted in him being substituted an hour in.


Arthur Cabral – 4.5

Cabral played the second half of the game, but he also did not do enough from an attacking point of view. In fairness, he was not being fed the ball. Yet, he just could not do his part in lifting the Viola to the title.

Riccardo Saponara – 5.5

Saponara came on for Kouamé in attempts to swing the game Fiorentina’s way. To the Italian’s credit, he did look lively. Yet, the serious chances just were not there. He was decent, but needed to add more in the time he was on the pitch.

Igor – 5.5

Igor came on for Ranieri with five minutes of normal time left. The Brazilian looked solid enough on the ball. He did not have to do a whole lot in his brief cameo, but cannot be disappointed in his showing.

Antonin Barák – N/A
