West Ham vs Astra by Keysersoze
In their first game in Romania result was 1-1. West Ham was better side in that game and had a lead of 1-0, but Astra managed to equal in 83rd minute.
West Ham still have many troubles with injuries and they will be without Ayew, Cresswell, Feghouli and Sakho. However good news are that Payet and Lanzini are fit for this game so we will see much stronger line up from West Ham than it was in Romania. Bilic said that he will play with their strongest team today and that they want to qualify for the group stage so they will both probably start from the first minute.
Astra have all players available for this game, while also their coach Sumudica will return after suspension. Anyway Astra have not impressed me with their play in the first game, while they also come after a very tough defeat against CFR Cluj in domestic league where they were defeated with 5-1. They playing very poor lately and have only 1 win in last 8 matches so I think their chances here are not so good and I will take West Ham to cover -1.5 handicap.
