It was a frantic and tense first leg at the London Stadium last week as 10-man West Ham secured a respectable 1-1 draw against Lyon. Despite having a numerical disadvantage following Aaron Cresswell’s sending off on the stroke of half-time, David Moyes’ men battled valiantly to keep themselves in the tie.

The tone was set in the build up to Cresswell’s early bath for a tug on Moussa Dembele, with referee Felix Zwayer proving exceptionally whistle-happy. There was some debate as to whether Dembele was heading away from goal, but Zwayer was in no doubt and brandished amber in the direction of a crestfallen Cresswell.

Up against it, the Hammers came out in the second half with the bit between their teeth, dug in deep to the inevitable Lyon onslaught and caught the visiting Frenchmen unawares on the counter, breaking the deadlock through Jarrod Bowen against the run off play, provoking pandemonium at the London Stadium.

It was an exceptionally tall order for the east Londoners, and Peter Bosz’s Gones eventually restored parity through Tottenham loanee Tanguy Ndombele, bringing the scoreline back level, and teeing up a mouthwatering return leg in gastronomic capital of France. It will be a footballing feast at the Groupama Stadium.

Lyon vs West Ham: Match Stats

Lyon will feel confident of getting on the scoresheet once again as Les Gones have have only failed to score in one of their last 28 matches in the Europa League. That single blank came away to Atalanta in the group stages of 2017/18. Incredibly, Lyon last failed to score at home in the competition in a quarter-final match against Juventus in 2013/14.

Working in Lyon’s favour even more is the fact that they are only one of two sides yet to lose in the Europa League this season having come through the group stages, along with Eintracht Frankfurt. It’s the third time they’ve gone nine games without defeat in a single season in major European competition (2013/14 Europa League and the 2005/06 Champions League).
