West Ham Predicted Lineup vs Backa Tapola & Preview

The most victories by an English team in a single season were recorded by the defending ECL winners West Ham, who won 14 games in European play last season (including qualifiers). The only team to ever win 17 games in a season was Atlético Madrid in 2011–12.

For the first time in their history, Backa Topola are competing in important European competitions. They are the first Serbian team to make their debut since Borac Cacak in 2008–2009, who lost their opening UEFA Cup encounter 4–1 to Ajax.

Michail Antonio of West Ham was one of just two players to score six or more goals in the Conference League last year. In addition, Antonio scored twice for the Hammers in the Europa League in 2021–2022, making it five straight goals in important European competition at the London Stadium for the Jamaican international.

In their current campaign, West Ham has scored 2.5 goals per game. Nine of West Ham’s most recent 10 games had goals from both teams. The previous six home European games for West Ham have gone undefeated. Over the course of their last six domestic European matches, the Hammers recorded two clean sheets.

Three of their past four road contests saw Backa Topola score. The Hammers’ encounter with Serbian opponents will be their first ever. Since the Estonian team FCI Levadia’s 1-0 loss to Newcastle in their first game against an English team in a major European competition in September 2006, Backa Topola is the first team to play English opposition in that first game.

Going into this UEL Group Stages intense fixture, West Ham has a win probability of 70%, whereas Backa Tapola also has a win probability of 10%.
