Reason for West Ham vs Lyon Predictions
West Ham welcomes Lyon to the London Stadium in this first leg tie of the Europa League quarter-final. The home team came through the last round after beating Sevilla 2-0 in the second leg for an aggregate win of 2-1. This was an upset win as Sevilla has been brilliant in this competition over the years. West Ham beat Everton 2-1 in their last Premier League match, a victory that saw them enter the Europa League qualification spots on the table. They are unbeaten in their previous six home matches, winning five and drawing one. West Ham has only lost once in their last nine home matches. This will be their first-ever European match against Lyon, and they have only previously played one French team in Europe. 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. There aren’t many selection issues, with just the lone fitness concern for the West Ham United boss David Moyes to be concerned about due to a largely intact squad. Angelo Ogbonna (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play. Manuel Lanzini will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Lyon came through a very difficult tie in the previous round when they overcame Portuguese giants Porto 2-1 on aggregate. They won the first leg away from home, and a 1-1 draw at home was enough to see them into the quarter-finals. Lyon has only lost once in their last six matches across all competitions, with their away record even more impressive. They have just one defeat in their last ten away matches. Lyon is unbeaten in their previous six matches against English opposition, most recently knocking Manchester City out of the Champions League in the 2019/20 season. After losing five consecutive quarter-finals in Europe, Lyon has won three of the next four quarter-final ties. 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.
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.
