Lyon vs West Ham United

Naturally frustrated, coach Peter Bosz spoke frankly afterwards, stating that he was “not satisfied with the result”.

Lyon’s 1-1 draw at West Ham in the first leg of this season’s UEFA Europa League quarter-finals would have been seen as a good result under normal circumstances, but not if you consider that Lyon played the whole second half with a man advantage. Naturally frustrated, coach Peter Bosz spoke frankly afterwards, stating that he was “not satisfied with the result”. With no away goals rule, the 2017 UEFA Europa League semi-finalists must win to guarantee their progression within 90 minutes. However, this is something they’ve done only three times across their previous 11 European home matches vs English opposition, with two of those wins dating back to the 1960s.

West Ham United

In response to the first-leg result, West Ham coach David Moyes praised his players’ attitude in the second half, saying that they “showed resilience with ten men”. Looking for their first European semi-final appearance since 1975/76, West Ham can at least take some comfort from knowing they’ve progressed from three of their four previous European quarter-final ties. West Ham now need to overcome a three-game losing run in European knockout away matches, which saw them fail to find the net on each occasion. That, coupled with the fact they’ve lost in their last five competitive road trips – including a 2-0 defeat to mid-table Brentford at the weekend – means it’s no surprise that West Ham are outsiders here.

 

Moussa Dembele has scored seven goals across Lyon’s previous seven home outings, with four coming inside the opening 30 minutes of play. The battle to see who will score first could also involve West Ham’s Michail Antonio, as he’s scored the East London side’s opener with five of his last six goals. Lyon have found the net in their last 15 UEFA Europa League/UEFA Cup home matches.
