West Ham United’s sell-out quarter-final clash with French giants Lyon will go down as one of the club’s most important fixtures in history.
The Hammers will face their biggest challenge yet next Thursday, as they prepare to face Ligue 1 side Lyon in the first leg of their quarter-final bout in the Europa League.
David Moyes and his squad will no doubt be feeling the pressure to get a good advantage in the first game, so that the second leg will not be so stressful for the Hammers.
However, as we have seen previously, this group of players are considerably up to the test and this could make for one of West Ham’s most exciting atmospheres to date.
The Lyon home fixture tickets sold out in record speed just days following their release before they even went out on general sale, which just highlights the buzz and excitement amongst West Ham supporters right now.
West Ham’s unforgettable second leg victory over Sevilla in the previous round would have been a night to remember for most and fans are hoping that this Lyon clash will follow suit.
Resembling a similar atmosphere to that of the Upton Park days, the London Stadium has recaptured the hearts of many as the team embarks on this incredible European journey.
West Ham United have recently offered additional Lyon tickets for the home leg to be available for fans, and they will no doubt get snapped up rapidly again as the Hammers prepare for their biggest match in recent history.
