West Ham missed out on the chance to qualify for the Europa League on the final day of last season, with a defeat to Brighton condemning them to seventh. However, due to Liverpool’s EFL Cup win, the Hammers do still have European football this season in the form of the Europa Conference League. This will be West Ham’s first foray in the competition and they enter it at the play-offs, the final round of qualifying.

The Hammers will have happy memories of European football, particularly last season, when they reached the semi-finals of the Europa League before being beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt, but they haven’t fared as well in qualifying rounds. West Ham fans will still remember the Europa League qualifiers of 2015/16 and 2016/17 when they were knocked out in consecutive years by Astra Giurgiu.

Looking to be 2022/23’s Astra Giurgiu are Danish side Viborg, who are experiencing continental football for just the second time – getting knocked out of the Uefa Cup in the second round by Rayo Vallecano on away goals in 2000/01. Viborg were only promoted back to the Danish Superliga ahead of last season and qualified for the European play-off match as winners of the relegation round, beating AaB on penalties.

The Greens entered the Europa Conference League in the second qualifying round and were drawn against Suduva, beating the Lithuanian side 2-0 over two legs. Things were a lot more comfortable in the next round and Viborg beat B36 Torshavn of the Faroe Islands 5-1 on aggregate, including a 3-0 victory in the first leg that essentially put the tie to bed early.

West Ham vs Viborg match stats

West Ham haven’t scored in their past 230 minutes of action but they should re-find that form at the London Stadium on Thursday. Having started both of the Premier League matches on the bench, Thursday could be the time for Gianluca Scamacca to make his full West Ham debut and the Italian scored 16 goals in 36 matches for Sassuolo last season.

Many will expect West Ham to win but they may not have it easy. Including the end of last season, West Ham haven’t kept a clean sheet in four matches and have managed just one in their past 10, while Viborg have failed to score just once in nine games in 2022/23.
