On Thursday night, West Ham United plays FCSB to begin their Europa Conference League group-stage campaign.
West Ham United
Given that West Ham are currently languishing in 18th place in the Premier League standings with four points after six games, the situation does not look good for the team. West Ham's performances, though, have typically been deserving of better, and on Saturday, only a contentious VAR decision kept them from earning a 2-2 draw at Chelsea.
FC Steaua Bucuresti
With just seven points from as many games, FCSB ahve had a miserable start to the current Romanian top-flight season. Their lone victory was a 3-2 comeback victory over opponents who started the game with 10 men, and they also seemed to be out of the tournament when they fell down to Viking in the playoff round.
In order to keep his players fresh for this game, Moyes will unavoidably switch around his starting lineup. They will see this forthcoming game as their chance to deliver a crushing victory and restore their confidence. As things stand, West Ham are certain to triumph handily.
Pick: West Ham United -1.5/2 in AH
