Gent will face West Ham United in Quarter-final 1st leg of the 2022/2023 UEFA Europa Conference League which can be watched via live streaming on Soccer TV on Thursday, April 13 2023, ET.
Gent is still struggling to advance to the semifinals of the Europa Conference League (UECL), the first European competition this season. They have to face West Ham, the unbeaten Premier League team in this tournament. Gent’s coach, Hein Vanhaezebrouck, admitted that his opponent was very strong, but he did not give up easily.
The first leg will take place at Ghelamco Arena, home of Gent. There, Buffalos – nicknamed Gent – has a good record. They have lost just one of the last 15 clashes at home. Three of those wins came in the UECL, including when they eliminated Partizan Belgrade 4-2 on aggregate in the round of 16.
West Ham also has good capital to stop the host’s run. They have won all ten of their UECL matches this season with a 25-3 goal difference. They also have fond memories of their visit to Belgium. In 1964, they beat Gent 2-1 on aggregate in the first round of the Cup Winners’ Cup, a trophy they would eventually win.
Now, UECL is entertainment for The Hammers – nicknamed West Ham – who are threatened with relegation in the Premier League. They just beat Fulham 1-0 in the league, but that wasn’t enough to erase the criticism of coach David Moyes. There was a banner asking him to step down while his team was playing at home.
This match will be a fierce duel between two teams with big ambitions. Who will come out victorious? Who will score the important goals? Hugo Cuypers from Gent or Jarrod Bowen from West Ham? Both of them are the team’s main goal scorers and of course can be key players of both teams.
Cuypers has scored either the first or the last goal in 11 of his last 12 goals scored for Gent. Bowen has scored five of his ten goals this season in the UECL and is West Ham’s all-time leading European goalscorer with eight goals.
