Thursday 8pm: AZ Alkmaar v West Ham
Europa Conference League semi final second leg, West Ham lead 2-1 on aggregate
TV: BT Sport 1

After a mixed performance in the first leg in the London Stadium, West Ham were lucky to come away with a one-goal win against AZ Alkmaar. Now they make the trip across to the Netherlands, with the vision of a Europa Conference League final firmly fixed in their minds. After what has been a poor season overall for the Hammers in the league, their run in this competition has certainly been a highlight.

The Draw

The first leg was a close affair overall, with West Ham scrambling from behind after going one-nil down as the first half drew to a close. This game could turn out much the same, with AZ Alkmaar dominating the possession again and creating more chances than they did in the first leg.

West Ham will be more than happy with a Draw that would see them going through to the final in Prague, against either Basel or Fiorentina.

Over 1.5 Goals

Just like the first game, we’re expecting to see a few goals in this match. With Alkmaar scrambling to overcome their goal deficit, and the encouragement of the home fans, they will be dangerous. West Ham will want to get themselves a goal to provide them with a bit of a safety valve, and then tighten up and hold out for ninety minutes.

Either way, we have this game seeing goals from both sides and Over 1.5 Goals.

AZ Alkmaar to Receive the Most Cards

In the first leg, Alkmaar picked up three yellow cards, including one for former Arsenal and Brighton goalkeeper Maty Ryan. We’re expecting to see this trend continue (not the goalkeeper getting booked, but AZ receiving more cards).

West Ham have received the fewest yellow cards in all of the Premier League this season, and this disciplinary record is what makes this a very attractive market for us to target. It’s got to be AZ Alkmaar to Receive the Most Cards.

Said Benrahma To Score or Assist

Said Benrahma was the main man for West Ham in the first leg, managing to get himself on the scoresheet with the all-important penalty. He’s got himself two goals and one assist through his nine Conference League appearances this season.

In the Premier League, he’s had a quieter season than his 2021/22 campaign, with six goals and three assists in total. They might not be Erling Haaland-esque numbers, but we’ve seen Benrahma shine when West Ham have needed him most and we would hope to see it happen again on Thursday evening. We’ll round off with Said Benrahma To Score or Assist.
