West Ham have already secure their spot in the knockout stages of the Europa Conference League but still need to confirm their path. In case you have forgotten, the group winners go directly into the last 16 while the runners-up must face the Europa League dropouts in the knockout round play-offs. David Moyes’ men need just a point from their final two matches to guarantee top spot, currently six points clear of second-placed Silkeborg.
The Hammers have been perfect in the Europa Conference League so far, winning all of their four matches, though they haven’t been straightforward victories. In their opening match West Ham had to come from a goal down to beat FCSB at the London Stadium, the only goal the Romanian side have scored in the competition this season. They had to come from behind again to beat Silkeborg 3-2 in the reverse fixture before narrow wins home and away over Anderlecht.
Silkeborg, meanwhile, know a win in London coupled with Anderlecht dropping points would seal their spot in the knockout stages while also keeping their hopes of winning the group alive. The Danish side have won two of their opening four matches but started with two defeats, first losing to Anderlecht and then West Ham.
But they bounced back thanks to their double-header against FCSB. A pair of 5-0 wins home and away lifted Silkeborg up to second in the group, two points clear of Anderlecht, and Silkeborg will no doubt be hoping for an upset here to ease the burden of their final game.
