Reason for Lyon vs West Ham Predictions

Lyon and West Ham battle it out for the right to meet either Barcelona or Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League semi-finals. The first leg of this quarter-final saw Lyon travel to West Ham and return home with a come from behind 1-1 draw. They drew at Strasbourg at the weekend, making it four draws in their last five games. Lyon needed a last gasp goal to get that point and is now five points behind the final Europa Conference League qualification spot. They are ten points off the Champions League places, so it looks like to be in that next year, they need to win this season’s Europa League. Karl Toko Ekambi is the best player for the home side, he has excellent dribbles, his greatest strength is speed, which makes this guy unstoppable. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Maxence Caqueret (Meniscal Injury), Rayan Cherki (Metatarsal Fracture), and Sinaly Diomandé (Ankle Surgery) will not be able to play for Lyon boss Peter Bosz.

West Ham will be disappointed to have given away their first-leg lead. They lost 2-0 at Brentford at the weekend and, like Lyon, probably need to win the Europa League for a Champions League place next season. The Hammers are sixth in the Premier League but could easily drop out of the European qualification places. Away form is a major worry for West Ham. The loss at Brentford was their fifth consecutive loss on the road. Over 90 minutes, they have gone seven away games without a win. Just one goal has been scored in their last four away matches, and their most recent Europa League away game was a 1-0 loss at Sevilla. Declan Rice has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Jarrod Bowen is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. In an otherwise available group of players, there is just the sole fitness problem for the West Ham United manager David Moyes to be concerned about. Angelo Ogbonna (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out on this game. Aaron Cresswell cannot play in this game through suspension.

Conclusion

There are no favorites in this match, and we won’t be surprised if this clash could end in a draw.

This will be a big fight between these two rivals, and we should expect a goal from both teams. Football fans should enjoy this match and see at least a goal in each net.
