David Moyes Europa LeagueGetty Images

West Ham are set to line up in the Europa Conference League for the first time as they face Viborg in the first leg of their qualifying play-off match at the London Stadium, on Thursday.

A final day defeat to Brighton in the Premier League left David Moyes' side without a direct spot in the group stage of the competition, while the Danish side have come through the early qualification rounds before reaching the play-offs this year.

West Ham reached the semi-finals of the Europa League last season, but haven't enjoyed a good start domestically in 2022-23, losing 2-0 at home to Premier League champions Manchester City before being beaten away by Nottingham Forest.

Viborg are still clear underdogs in the clash, but will seek to keep building some momentum after recording five wins in their last six games in all competitions, including triumphs over Suduva and BS6 Torshavn in the Conference League qualifying rounds.
