West Ham United vs Backa Topola Predictions

  • West Ham have won three of their last four games, two of which were by a two goals.
  • Backa Topola lost 7-1 on aggregate to Sporting Braga recently.
  • James Ward-Prowse has had a hand in five goals in four outings since signing for West Ham.

Hammers welcome debutants

Europa Conference League winners West Ham get their Europa League campaign up and running on Thursday and they should be able to open with a comfortable win against Europa League-debutants Backa Topola.

The Serbian visitors were promoted to the top flight for the first time ever in 2018/19 and have rapidly rose through the ranks, but this marks the first time they have ever played in the group stage in Europe.

Backa Topola set for baptism of fire

Unfortunately, it is unlikely to be an easy start for them if their showing in the Champions League third qualifying round is anything to go by, where they lost 7-1 on aggregate against Sporting Braga.

Backa Topola have bounced back from that humbling to win four straight domestic games, but West Ham represent a sizeable step up in quality and that should shine through at the London Stadium.

The Hammers won the Europa Conference League last term while enduring a difficult season domestically, but David Moyes has put that behind them to start the campaign in decent shape.

Hosts can open with a win on Thursday

They have won three of their five assignments so far, scoring ten goals and beating the likes of Chelsea and Brighton. Both of these wins saw them score three goals and they should be able to cover a -2 handicap against the Serbians on Thursday, while a repeat of Backa Topola’s 3-0 loss at Braga is recommended as a correct score prediction.

James Ward-Prowse stands out as a solid anytime goalscorer pick after his summer transfer to London. The 28-year-old has had a hand in five goals in four games since his move and has scored in two of his last three outings. Early signs suggest he could be one of the signings of the season and he is worth backing to find the net on Thursday.
