AEK Larnaca vs West Ham: Prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, h2h results, odds today
West Ham play AEK Larnaca in Cyprus tonight, looking for a distraction from their domestic woes in the Europa Conference League.
Six wins from six group-stage matches saw David Moyes’ side cruise straight through to the last-16 before Christmas, and they now return to European action with the pressure very much on as a poor Premier League campaign continues.
The fans in attendance as West Ham were beaten 4-0 by Brighton over the weekend made their discontent abundantly clear, and even a deep run in Europe might not be enough to save an unexpectedly worrying season. Larnaca edged past Dnipro-1 to reach the last-16 and currently sit second in the Cypriot First Division, behind only APOEL.

AEK Larnaca vs West Ham is scheduled for a 5:45pm GMT kick-off time today on Thursday March 9, 2023.

AEK Larnaca vs West Ham prediction
A trip to Cyprus will lift the spirits of the West Ham fans making the journey, and the pressure is on for the team to ensure they do not dampen the mood on the pitch.
West Ham were awful last time out and continue to struggle to move away from the relegation zone, but as seen earlier in the season they are far superior to many of the teams in this competition.
Even with the poor form and confidence so low, the Hammers should be returning to London with a first-leg advantage.
West Ham to win, 2-1.
