West Ham start their Conference League campaign at home to Romanian side FCSB at 8 pm on Thursday, and the competition is a welcome break for the Hammers from what has been an abysmal start to the new Premier League season.
They have just one win to their name so far, with four defeats and a draw coming in their other five games. But they performed well last time out against Chelsea, with only a controversial VAR decision preventing them from leaving Stamford Bridge with a point.
But, this match will present the opportunity of finally picking up a win after a dismal run of games recently, especially because of who the opposition are. The Romanian side sits 13th in the 16-team Romanian First Division, with seven points from seven games. And because of their form coming into this fixture, coupled with the superiority of West Ham's squad with big-money signings such as Gianluca Scamacca, Lucas Paqueta and Cornet all likely to start, we can see the Hammers winning this one.
