It’s all to play for in the second leg of the Europa Conference League quarter-final tie between West Ham and Gent, with things finely poised.

After what was at times an uncomfortable evening last week in Belgium, West Ham will have been delighted with a 1-1 draw.

Moreover, they will come into the game on the back of an excellent result in the league last Sunday where they rallied from 2-0 down against table-toppers Arsenal to secure a point and bolster their survival hopes.

Containing Gift Orban, of course, will be the primary focus of the Hammers, and the Nigerian striker came close to a winner when he rattled the frame of the goal with a scissors kick.

West Ham have been imperious for large chunks of their European campaign, but can they book a place in the last four?

We have provided a full lowdown as well as handpicked a couple of tips for you to mull over ahead of kick-off.

Home comforts for Hammers

To date, West Ham’s progress has been serene in Europe, winning 10 of their 11 matches.

They have been tough to break down, and the way they dismantled AEK Larnaca at home in the previous round, albeit against more limited opposition, suggests that Gent could be in for a tough evening at the London Stadium.

Intriguingly, the Hammers have only conceded three times at home in the Europa League Conference this term, but if the first leg is anything to go by, it could well be frantic at times with plenty of opportunities carved out.

This is therefore a tight one to call, but I think West Ham will progress to the semi-finals. And the West Ham to win and BTTS line is worth exploring, which is available at 14/5 with Unibet.

West Ham vs Gent Tips For Thursday Night

Danny Ings the head boy

After breaking his European duck, Danny Ings will be relishing the second leg.

He can be a bit of a poacher and his goal last week encompassed that with a close-range finish.

Ings, of course, will be eager to help West Ham take another step closer to ending their 43-year trophy drought, and he will feel he has done enough to earn a starting berth.

I always like a good special, and for my second pick, I have gone with Ings to net with a header. William Hill has obliged with a price of 12/1 if you fancy following up on that.
