Backa Topola v West Ham United Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 5:45pm UK Time, Thursday 30th November 2023

 

West Ham United will be eager to hold onto top spot in Group A and send themselves through to the knockout stages of the Europa League with a game to spare when they face Backa Topola on Thursday evening.

November has been kind to the Hammers given that the East London outfit have triumphed in all-but-one of their last five competitive games including wins in their last three against Olympiacos, Notts Forest and Burnley. As things stand, David Moyes’ men sit in ninth position in the Premier League table with three points separating them from seventh-placed Newcastle United after thirteen rounds of league fixtures. They have collected nine points from a possible twelve in the Europa League this term and Moyes will be only too aware that victory on Thursday evening will guarantee for his men a place in the knockout stages of the tournament.

West Ham have been having few issues finding the back of the net this season and this certainly bodes well ahead of Thursday evening’s contest. They have added to the scoreline in each of their ten away games across competitions this term although they have won only five of these.

Backa Topola cannot now automatically make it into the knockout stages of the Europa League given that they sit eight points behind the top two in their group with two matches left to play. They haven’t managed a single win in the competition as yet with their only point coming by way of a 2-2 draw at home to Olympiacos. They could conceivably reach the Conference League play-offs should they draw with the Hammers this week and beat Olympiacos in their final outing on their travels, assuming that the latter lose in their fixture with SC Freiburg this week.

Backa Topola’s victory over Partisan at the weekend will have boosted their confidence ahead of this clash, however the chances of them getting one over on the Hammers seems a bit of a tall order. West Ham won’t be taking this one lightly but we envisage them having enough strength in depth to overcome their hosts and moving themselves into the knockout stages of the tournament on Thursday evening.

 

Back West Ham to win and both teams to score at best odds of 13/8
