West Ham v Astra Giurgiu

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • West Ham have kept clean sheets in three of their four Europa League qualifiers
Expert verdict
West Ham needed a penalty shootout to see off Birkirkara in the last round and will have to improve to overcome Romanians Astra, who visit Upton Park in the first leg. Astra reached the group stage last year and will be no pushovers but the Hammers should be feeling the benefits of their pre-season work and can secure a narrow advantage.
