West Ham United v Lyon Bet Builder Betting Tip:

West Ham United or Draw – Double Chance

The Hammers are slowly turning the London Stadium into a fortress, losing just three of their last 17 on home soil in all competitions.

Lyon are once again a step up in competition for David Moyes’ boys, but they have continued to deal with all comers in east London over the past two seasons.

Lyon have won six of their last 15 – which isn’t abysmal – but we expect West Ham to travel to France next week with something to defend.

Jarod Bowen to score anytime

Jarod Bowen is back in the West Ham fold following a short spell on the treatment table.

The 25-year-old has been instrumental in everything positive about West Ham’s attacking threat this season racking up goal after assist.

If the hosts are to penetrate Lyon’s defence then the nippy English winger will surely have a hand in it.

Tomas Soucek to be booked

Thomas Soucek’s two yellow cards this season have come at home against sides who are “better” than West Ham – on paper at least – and the Czech midfielder may have to “take one for the team” at some point on Thursday night.

For a defensive midfielder, Soucek is a very clean and talented player, but under the lights in such a big European match, pressure is surely going to boil.

The spotlight will be on himself and Declan Rice trying to control the middle of the park.
