First of all, we should mention that West Ham have not done too well on the road lately; they have five wins in their last 13 games, and all those wins were at home. The Hammers have lost all of their last five games away from home; they won just one of their last eight road games, and that win came in extra time. On the other hand, Lyon have no losses in their last five games; they tend to draw a lot of games, as four of those five games ended in draws. It's worth noting that the reverse fixture of this tie ended in a draw; all things considered, we are making the prediction that this match will go into extra time.
Both sides will hit the net
Despite their poor recent form, West Ham have been consistent when it comes to scoring goals; they found the net in five of their last six games, with eight goals scored in that stretch. Conversely, West Ham have seen their defense breached in all of their last four games; with both teams scoring in three of those four games. Similarly, Lyon have scored and conceded a lot of goals recently; they scored in seven of their last eight games, whilst conceding in five of their last six games. Both teams scored in five of Lyon's last six games; with this in mind, we should expect goals at both ends.
