Expert predictions

Ian Holyman, match reporter
Lyon are predictably unpredictable, so forget their league form: Peter Bosz's men are one of those sides who can beat anyone 'on their day'. West Ham will travel to France optimistic, but nevertheless hoping to catch their hosts on a day when OL's undoubted individual talent doesn't sync.

What the coaches say

Peter Bosz, Lyon coach: "West Ham will play the same way they did at the London Stadium, I think. My team have to be prepared for every scenario. I coach my team to win games, but to do so, you have to take shots and score. I hope we will learn from the things we didn't do well in the first leg. The fans will be behind us this time, which makes a big difference. The players must repay our supporters on the pitch."

David Moyes, West Ham manager: "I don't think we've got a second chance – we've got a great chance. If you'd have given me this, I'd have taken that off you all day long. 1-1 at this stage in the competition is a really powerful position to be in. We've got a bit of toughness about us which I think we showed, playing 45 minutes with ten men – let's see what we can do when we've got eleven men."
