Both sides battled it out in the first leg of this round at the London Stadium, and the Hammers managed to pick up a 1-1 draw despite having ten men for a considerable amount of the match.
West Ham will be needing to perform well from the moment the game starts if they want to advance to the semis, and this makes the match an entertaining prospect.
This will be a very tough task for West Ham who are a lot more inexperienced than Lyon in Europe. The Ligue 1 outfit have also been in the Champions League in the past.

Head to Head
The two sides have only competitively met once before in the past, and that was the first leg in early April 2022. It was a 1-1 draw.
The betting markets have been struggling to pick a favourite, but it looks like at the moment West Ham are edging it.
- Lyon to win: 11/10
- Draw: 12/5
- West Ham to win: 5/2
This should be a very good contest as they both desperately want the win to continue in this competition. We expect it to be a nervy affair, and no doubt the Hammers will find it tough.
The English side do have a couple of injuries and suspensions, and this will make the match a lot harder for them. We expect home form to help Lyon on the night.
Prediction: Lyon 2-1 West Ham
