London Stadium will host Thursday’s Europa League game between West Ham United and Freiburg. The Hammers aim to overcome a one-goal deficit in the tie with Christian Streich’s troops and we are positive that the hosts will go all guns blazing at the Bundesliga outfit. Mexico midfielder Edson Alvarez returns to the starting XI, while both Emerson and Maxwel Cornet are out of contention with injuries.

Freiburg, on the other hand, won the first leg thanks to Michael Gregoritsch’s goal and they are now on a quest to defend their slim lead in London. West Ham United, though, are a real force to be reckoned with at home and given their fine display in a 2-2 draw Burnley, especially in the second half, home win should be considered. All Kyereh, Lienhart, Rosenfelder, and Schmidt are out of contention with injuries for the German side.

Outright Betting

West Ham United, who have won all three of their Europa League home games this season, are 7/10 favourites on wjcasino

Freiburg are as big as 15/4 to repeat last week’s victory while a second leg stalemate has been priced up at 3/1 by yyslot.

Betting Angles

West Ham’s leaky defence makes them difficult to trust at short odds-on prices so I’ll instead opt for Bet Builder and couple up a West Ham goal and five West Ham corners at 4/5 by 888casino .

David Moyes’ side hold a pretty strong home record since returning to the Europa League in 2021, having avoided defeat in seven of their nine London Stadium outings, triumphing on six those occasions.

What’s more, the Hammers have only failed to hit the back of the net once across that sequence, notching twice in a 2-0 success against Freiburg when the pair met at the London Stadium earlier this season during the group stage.

Recent Meetings

Freiburg got their revenge for the two defeats to West Ham in the group stage of the competition.

The Hammers bagged two goals in each of the head-to-head clashes against Freiburg in the group phase.

David Moyes’ men failed to find the back of the net seven days ago in a 0-1 defeat at Europa-Park Stadion.

West Ham vs Freiburg Prediction

Freiburg lost just one of the last seven games across competitions. However, they have shown much better displays at home than on the road throughout the season. Streich’s men thus have four defeats in the previous five away outings in German Bundesliga. They left too much space behind even in the last weekend’s win at Bochum, conceding 18 shots (6 on target) four days ago at Vonovia Ruhrstadion. West Ham possess enough quality in their ranks to overcome a one-goal deficit. We will back the hosts to win at the 1.70 odds.

The value is great with the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the 1.95 odds. Each of Freiburg’s last five away fixtures in Bundesliga saw three or more goals scored. We’ve also seen four or more goals in each of West Ham’s last three Premier League matches. Even the last week’s first leg at Europa-Park Stadion brought us plenty of high-profile opportunities on both ends, despite the 1-0 scoreline.
