For West Ham vs. Lyon, Eimer is backing both teams to score for a -130 payout. Both clubs have battled inconsistency throughout the season, but both reliably score goals. Lyon has scored in each of its 10 Europa League matches this season, while West Ham’s 51 goals in Premier League play are the fifth-most in the world’s best league.
Moussa Dembele, Karl Toko Ekambi and Lucas Paqueta have done most of the heavy lifting for Lyon, scoring a total of 35 goals across all competitions. Meanwhile, West Ham has gotten more balanced contributions, with six players scoring at least five times in all competitions this season.
West Ham has only managed to keep one clean sheet in its last seven matches, while Lyon has only held two teams scoreless in its last eight. Expect both sides to stream bodies forward in possession, and with plenty of quality on both sides, this could be a game played at a breakneck pace with the potential for multiple goals for each team.
