7th April 2022 – 21:00, Olympic Stadium, London
West Ham and Lyon will face each other in the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday evening. The home side wants to go to the very end of the competition, while the visitors search for a positive result in the first leg.
West Ham Preview & Team News
West Ham United will want to continue where they left off last time with success in the 2:1 Premier League against Everton. That win saw them climbing to 6th place on the standings, entering the continental zone. It’s been a rare occasion in recent games where West Ham United has kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that West Ham United has failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 7 goals. On the other hand, the Hammers have been pretty productive lately. They will search for a win here before the trip to Lyon for the second-leg match.
Lyon Preview & Team News
Lyon will come into the match after a 3:2 Ligue 1 win against Angers SCO in their last outing. However, they need to stabilize their form to return to the top-five battle. In the course of their six previous matches, Peter Bosz’s Lyon has converted 11 times, earning them the goals scored per game average of 1.83. L’OL will also search for a place in the semi-finals of the Europa League, especially after eliminating Porto in the previous round. Lyon manager Peter Bosz has multiple availability issues to deal with. Maxence Caqueret (Meniscal Injury), Rayan Cherki (Metatarsal Fracture), and Sinaly Diomandé (Ankle Surgery) are not ready for selection. Léo Dubois is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
The home side is in a slightly better form, and they are favorites in front of their fans. We believe the Hammers will meet the expectations, and the English side should secure the first-leg advantage.
Goals Market Prediction
Neither team has been very confident in defense lately, but their offensive work has been pretty decent. Therefore, we believe both sides will find the back of the net in this encounter.
