Today's Predictions for Larnaca vs West Ham
Can West Ham leave their domestic woes behind when they travel to take on Cypriot outfit Larnaca in the Europa Conference League on Thursday? Read our top Larnaca vs West Ham predictions for this week’s fixture below.
West Ham to Win
West Ham suffered their 14th Premier League defeat of the campaign when they were torn to shreds by Brighton (4-0) at the weekend, though the Irons should be able to muster a response against minnows Larnaca in the Europa Conference League’s Round of 16 on Thursday. West Ham have won 100% of their eight assignments in the competitions so far, and they should have far too much class in their armoury for a low-level Larnaca side to match. With that in mind, our first Larnaca vs West Ham prediction forecasts an away win.
Over 1.5 West Ham Goals
The second of our football predictions today delves into the always-popular goals markets, where West Ham are available at a generous price to net over 1.5 times on Thursday. In eight Europa Conference League fixtures so far this season, the Londoners notched two or more goals six times and David Moyes’s team seem to be several levels above the rest of what is a weak field in the tournament. Expect West Ham to create and convert more chances in Cyprus this week.

West Ham have few injury concerns this week, though manager David Moyes is expected to ring the changes on Thursday to keep his troops fresh for more pressing matters in the Premier League's battle for survival. Flynn Downes, Aaron Cresswell and Gianluca Scamacca are among those hoping to play.
Predicted Lineup for West Ham: Areola – Johnson, Aguerd, Ogbonna, Cresswell – Downes, Rice, Bowen, Fornals, Benrahman, Scamacca
Player to Watch – Gianluca Scamacca
Gianluca Scamacca’s chances to shine in the Premier League have become sparse, however, the Italian has been the Irons’ go-to-guy in the Europa Conference League this term. The Italian striker has already scored four times for West Ham in the competition and the 24-year-old could boost that tally even further on Thursday.
