This is uncharted territory for West Ham tonight. For the first time in the club’s 126 year history, the Hammers are competing in a European group stage.

They begin this chapter with a difficult tie away to Croatian champions of the last four campaigns and last season’s Europea League quarter-finalists. Dinamo Zagreb are currently top of their domestic division with five wins from seven matches and will expect to bag all three points against the newbies from England.

But David Moyes’ side are not short of confidence. They’re unbeaten in four Premier League matches and beat Italian outfit Atalanta 2-0 in a preseason friendly. A sixth-placed finish last season earned them the right to enter the competition at the group stage and the message from the manager to his players will underline the sentiment that they belong here.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Dinamo Zagreb vs West Ham is scheduled for a 5:45pm BST kick-off tonight.

Dinamo Zagreb vs West Ham team news

Moyes could hand debuts to two of his three new signings with the Kurt Zouma and Alphonse Areola in line for starting berths. Fellow new signing Nikola Vlasic from Croatia could also feature from the opening whistle which would be hist first start for the club after a 30 minute cameo against Southampton on Saturday.

Moyes may start Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice in the middle of the park but with a league clash against Manchester United coming just three days later, he may be tempted to rotate some of his squad.

Dinamo Zagreb vs West Ham prediction

There is no question that West Ham are where they belong given the impressive performances they produced last season. But a hostile atmosphere and the relatively new experience of playing a European fixture can’t be ignored when making a prediction. They’ll give a good account of themselves, but Moyes might look back on this one as a source of valuable lessons.
