The season so far hasn’t been great for West Ham United, and they will be out to make it better when they switch to continental action, hosting Viborg in the Europa Conference League playoffs. West Ham United have lost both their opening matches in the Premier League, their most recent a 1-0 defeat away to new boys Nottingham Forest. They go into this game winless in five matches, losing three of those. Meanwhile, West Ham have failed to score in their last three matches and have only managed two goals in five though they have one clean sheet in the process. Each of their last four matches has produced under 2.5 goals.
Viborg have had a good run so far in their season and coming into this game they will be very confident. They have four wins in their last five matches and only one defeat in that period. In their four wins in the last five matches, Viborg have scored two or more goals and they have kept clean sheets in just two of the five games. They joined in the Conference League qualifiers at the second qualification round and this will be their fifth match. This will also be their toughest game after home and away wins over Suduva and B36. Viborg have three clean sheets in their four Conference League games.
Viborg have four wins in five matches and while they will be looking to keep up the good run, here they will find a tougher opponent. They have done well in attack and will have that as a key quality going into this game. West Ham haven’t started the season well and this is a chance for them to start getting it right. Playing at home, we expect them to push for a win and facing a team also good in attack, we will go with over 2.5 goals.
