On Thursday evening, Serbian outfit Backa Topola hosts West Ham at the TSC Arena in the penultimate game in Group A of the Europa League.Backa Topola form guide
TSC’s recent results have been inconsistent, as although they pulled off an impressive 4-0 win at Partizan last time out, the win came after two straight defeats. The Serbian side has also won just two of their previous 13 games in all competitions.
The best that the home side can hope for in Group A is a third-place finish and a place in the Europa Conference League play-offs in the New Year. However, they are currently bottom of the group, three points behind third-place Olympiakos.
Backa Topola has failed to win any of their three home games in the Europa League in their last two spells, picking up just one draw and suffering two defeats while conceding at least two goals in all three outings.West Ham form guide
The Hammers seem to have rediscovered their best form of late, as a weekend 2-1 win at Burnley means that David Moyes's team has not only just won their last three games but also four of their previous five matches in all competitions.
The team from east London has also found their shooting boots in recent games, scoring at least two goals in four of their last five matches.
The Irons have a decent recent record in the Europa League, winning three of their four matches in Group A. Their decent European form means that a win would see them seal a spot in the competition's knockout stages.
West Ham’s away form has been inconsistent in the Europa League lately, as they have won three and lost three of their previous six matches.What am I backing?
West Ham seems full of confidence, and I am backing David Moyes’ team to record a victory to seal their progress to the competition’s knockout rounds.
