Confidence is rising in West Ham’s camp after their historic comeback win in the round of 16 second leg against Sevilla. Manager David Moyes has spoken about bringing top opposition to the London Stadium in this tournament and their reward for beating the six-time UEFA Cup and UEFA Euopa League winners is a meeting with French giants Lyon. The return of forward Jarrod Bowen provides a huge boost for the Hammers, as the Englishman will cover for Manuel Lanzini's absence through suspension.
Away goals rule abolished
There has been a rule change for 2021/22: ties level after the second leg will go to extra time and a penalty shoot-out if required, irrespective of the number of away goals a team has scored.
What the coaches say
David Moyes, West Ham manager: "It's really important to try and not lose tomorrow. The difference [in the round of 16] in Seville was we knew we had a target. The difference with this is we're just about to kick off. They won't know a great deal about us, we don't know a great deal about them. In the first game we want to try and play but also be mindful there's another game to come after."
Peter Bosz, Lyon coach: "West Ham are having a very good season with positive results at home. They are doing things together. We have faced some good teams in our league too, and we had a good result in Porto. We are here to win this game."
Seville's Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán Stadium will stage the final on Wednesday 18 May.
The winners gain a place in the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League group stage, if they have not qualified via their domestic competition.
