On 14 April, the Europa League quarter-final clash will take place at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais. Olympique Lyon face West Ham. A week ago they did not decide who was the stronger side (1-1). What will be the outcome now? Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be viewed at 1xbet bonus code.
Lyon played the entire second half on the powerplay in the first leg against West Ham. But it was only enough for the French to score one goal and equalize (1-1). Peter Bos’s men were assisted by Tanguy Ndombele, who is under contract to another London club, Tottenham.
Weavers can win by any score to progress to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. But it will not be that easy to achieve. Firstly, the opponents are very strong. Secondly, Olimpic have not yet won in the current UEFA Champions League play-offs. In the match against Porto it was a 1-1 draw.
Interesting fact. 4 of 6 Lyon’s games in the UEFA Champions League group ended with the Total Over 2.5. And all 3 of their play-off matches have ended with Under 2.5.
West Ham were of course expected to win on home soil in their first game against the French. But it didn’t turn out that way. Olympique were much more active in attack, and despite the fact that the Hammers were the first to score, it was the Frenchman who had many more chances to score. What happened to Moyes’ men? Not least, they failed to show their best football due to a suspension at the start of the second half. Obviously, it will be even more difficult for the visitors.
European competitions away performances have never been the strong side of English clubs, including West Ham. In the last round of the Europa League play-offs, the home side were beaten 1-0 by Sevilla.
In the last round of the English league, West Ham lost away to Brentford. I think this result was not least due to preparation for the return game against Lyon.
Personal encounter statistics
In 10 of their last 13 home games in the Europa League, the Clippers invariably scored at least 2 goals against their opponents (individual total more than 1.5).
Historically, Olympique are good at home in UEFA Champions League. So, in the last 13 games, only 1 defeat has been registered, with 9 victories and 3 World results. West Ham, on the other hand, have only 3 wins in their last 10 away matches (in the LE).
Prediction and betting for Lyon v West Ham United. Outcome with cf. 1,93
Lyon attacked a lot in the previous match. It is obvious that on the home field the team will forget about the defense. However, this could be disastrous for the team, because despite the recent disappointing results, West Ham is still a solid team, which has a lot of great players.
The visitors will not open up and will almost certainly wait for their chance on the counterattack. Given the manner of football Olympique, West Ham will definitely have many chances to score.
My prediction is a total of over 2.5.
