Hearts vs Fiorentina Head-to-Head and Key Numbers

  • This is the first time Hearts are facing Fiorentina in the Conference League.
  • Striker Lawrence Shankland has six goal contributions in the league for Hearts.
  • Midfielder Alan Forrest has scored three goals in the league for Hearts.
  • No Fiorentina player has scored more than one goal in Serie A this season.

Hearts vs Fiorentina Prediction

Hearts are currently sixth in the Scottish Premiership and have won two of their last five league games. The likes of Lawrence Shankland and Alan Forrest will be key for Hearts. They have won one game and lost in the competition this season and are second in their group, three points behind leaders Istanbul Basaksehir.

Fiorentina, on the other hand, are 11th in the league and have won only one of their last five league games, losing three. The Serie A side have not enjoyed a good start to the season, with a lack of sharpness in attack causing the club and manager Vincenzo Italiano huge problems.

They are bottom of their group in the UEFA Europa Conference League and are yet to win a game. Two points separate them and second-placed Hearts. Fiorentina will hope that the likes of Arthur Cabral, Luka Jovic and Christian Kouame find form soon and help Fiorentina in attack.

The Serie A side have a strong squad on paper, and manager Vincenzo Italiano will be keen to kickstart their European campaign against their Scottish opponents. Both sides have endured inconsistent seasons so far, but Fiorentina should have enough to emerge victorious in this game.
