West Ham v Gent Preview

West Ham welcome Gent at the London stadium on Thursday after both teams settled for a draw in the first leg last time around at the Ghelamco Arena. The Hammers have particularly struggled for form this season with the London side still not safe from the relegation spots in the Premier League – sitting just four points clear. David Moyes’ men however have been on a good run of form lately with just a single loss in their last eight matches in all competitions, scoring in all of them. They will also take confidence from their last outing against the Premier League leaders Arsenal, coming back from a 2 goal deficit to earn a well-deserved draw. Danny Ings, who gave West Ham the lead in the first leg against Gent, should be back in the Hammers’ lineup after his benching against the Gunners.

Gent will be feeling unfortunate to not enter this second leg with an advantage. Vanhaezebrouck’s men showcased their quality in the first leg having a total of 16 shots to West Ham’s 3, also hitting the woodwork in the process. Despite the Belgian side only winning on four occasions since the start of the group stages, odds and predictions look to favor them having suffered only a single defeat in their last 12 matches. All eyes will be on their top scorer Cuypers as the Buffalos take a step ahead to the most notable achievement in their club history.
