The Serbian centre-forward’s current form questions the hierarchies for the match against West Ham
The three days of the bomber. Cinematic reinterpretation in a purple key given that between today, tomorrow and Wednesday, the decision will have to arrive at the moment most in the balance in view of the Conference League final. Who to deploy from the first minute in attack between Jovic and Cabral. Very open ballot thanks also to the good period the two went through after a season of ups (the last few months) and downs (beginning of the year) spent wondering who was the real owner. When the question seemed to have found an answer in Cabral, the growth of Luka Jovic arrived, he seemed mentally inside Fiorentina in the last few weeks as perhaps never in the season.
Jovic scored 13 goals this season between the league (6), Conference (6 others) and the one in the Italian Cup against Toro. In the second leg he was overtaken in the hierarchies by the Brazilian, but in the last two league games played (the last one against Sassuolo he didn’t enter) he scored two goals against Turin and Rome. And even when in the cup competitions he has had the chance to enter the match in progress, see Basel or Inter, he has always made himself dangerous in front of the opponent’s goal. Cabral scored 17 goals this season with a score rather similar to the Serbian. Eight in the league, 7 in the conference, one in the Italian Cup and one in the playoffs against Twente. He also scored a few days ago against Sassuolo after a less brilliant period than in the previous months, just to reiterate that he is the owner. And so it’s up to the Italian to understand if Jovic’s run-up has been completed or the probable relay will still see King Arthur start the match.
Few doubts about the rest of the lineup. Starting from the attack obviously the star remains Gonzalez, author of a dazzling second part of the season and culminated with 14 goals overall. On the other hand it should still be up to favorite Ikone over Kouame to complete the department. Attacking midfielder will be Bonaventura, the two central midfielders Amrabat and Mandragora. And behind? The other doubt concerns the central defender who will support Milenkovic. He should play left-handed (therefore not Quarta), with Igor and Ranieri playing for a heavy and prestigious shirt. Dodo and Biraghi on the lanes, Terracciano returns in goal. Not to mention that the purple squad is very deep and in the last few matches it was up to the substitutes to decide the matches.
