8th Finals


Thanks for joining our commentary today. Until next time, goodbye.
West Ham face Crystal Palace in their next outing on Sunday at the London Stadium, while FCSB host Rapid Bucharest on the same day.
West Ham United end their Europa Conference League Group B campaign with a sixth win in a row courtesy of a 3-0 triumph over FCSB. Two strikes from Pablo Fornals and an own goal from Joyskim Dawa secured the three points for the Hammers in a match they controlled from start to finish. David Moyes' men now have momentum to take forward into the knockout phase of the competition.

90' There will be two minutes of added time.
90' BLOCK! West Ham preserve their clean sheet as Radunovic latches on to a corner from Coman and fires towards goal at the near post. However, a crowd of white shirts are there to charge down the strike.
90' Rusu goes down in the box under pressure from Ogbonna, but his appeals for a penalty are turned down as the referee only points for a corner.
88' SAVE! Tarnovanu makes another sharp stop as he beats away a powerful strike from Lanzini after the midfielder makes a probing run into the final third.
85' Olaru gathers another clearance from a Radaslavescu corner and turns to shoot on his left foot this time, but his effort travels wide of the right post.
83' WIDE! Olaru latches on to the resulting corner on the edge of the box, but he pulls his right-footed strike wide of the target.

Pablo Fornals
65' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! FORNALS NOTCHES HIS SECOND!!!!! 3-0 WEST HAM!!!! Fornals capitalises on a mistake by Tarnovanu and places a low strike into the net. Scarles whips a cross into the box from the left flank that the FCSB keeper spills into the penalty area. Fornals is the first to react and makes no mistake in slotting home.
62' CHANCE! Radaslavescu spurns a huge chance to get FCSB back into the game. Stoica breaks down the right flank and cuts a low ball back to Radaslavescu. He shoots on his right foot, but drags his effort wide of the left post.

J. Dawa
Own Goal
56' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! DAWA SCORES AN OWN GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2-0 WEST HAM!! Mubama celebrates, but Dawa is credited with an own goal as West Ham extend their lead. Downes floats a dangerous cross into the box from the right flank that Mubama attacks at the back post. He heads towards goal and his effort clips Dawa, before it rolls into the back of the net. West Ham are in control now.
54' Scarles collects on the left flank and is afforded time and space to place a cross into the box. It zips across the face of goal and evades Mubama on the stretch before trickling wide.
52' Mubama is played into acres of space down the right flank. He has time to pick his spot with a cross, but he fails to beat the first defender with his delivery.
50' WIDE! Mubama forces an offload towards Scarles on the edge of the box. He lines up a drive that deflects just wide of the post, but the Hammers can keep the pressure on from a corner.

E. Rădăslăvescu
M. Dulca
46' Dulca makes way for Radaslavescu in the FCSB midfield.
David Moyes will be pleased with the performance of his young team in Romania. They have controlled proceedings and if they had a bit more of a clinical edge in front of goal, they could well have put the game away.
West Ham United hold a 1-0 lead over FCSB at the break in their Europa Conference League clash. Pablo Fornals broke the deadlock just before half-time after latching onto Ben Johnson's ball over the top and firing a left-footed strike into the net. Replays show that he was offside, but without VAR, the goal was not chalked off. The Hammers are still good value for their lead and could have been further ahead if not for heroics from Stefan Tarnovanu.
45' + 1' CHANCE! Space opens up for Edjouma to race through on goal in the inside-left channel. However, he slices his right-footed strike well wide of the target.
45' There will be one minute of added time.
45' OFF THE LINE! Aguerd attacks a corner from Fornals that deflects off Compagno to wrong-foot Tarnovanu. The ball trickles towards goal, but Pantea reacts on the line with a sliding clearance to save a certain goal.
44' Mubama turns nicely in the final third and tries to look up for support, but Radunovic pokes the ball behind for a corner before he can threaten.
43' Replays show that Fornals was a step behind the FCSB defence when Johnson pumped the ball forward. There's no VAR in this competition, so there is no reprieve for the home side.
42' West Ham have scored seven first-half goals in six games, only Fiorentina (10) have scored more in the UEFA Europa Conference League this season.
B. Johnson
40' Johnson launches a ball over the top of the FCSB defence for Fornals to chase and score.
Pablo Fornals
40' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! FORNALS FIRES WEST HAM IN FRONT!!!!! 1-0!!!! The Spaniard latches on to a long ball over the top from Johnson and guides a left-footed strike past Tarnovanu. Johnson sends an early ball long and Fornals breaks in behind the FCSB defence. He takes a strike on first-time on the half-volley and finds the bottom-right corner with precision.
38' Bouhenna makes a vital challenge to halt Downes in the box just when it appeared the midfielder was going to get a strike away.
36' Scarles gets back for the visitors to knock Cordea's throughball away from Pantea on the overlap. Good tracking back from the 16-year-old.
35' SAVE! Tarnovanu denies Downes from close range. Fornals cuts in from the left flank and angles a cross into the box for Downes to attack. He steers a right-footed strike towards the target, but the FCSB keeper gets down to push his effort wide of the target.
N. Aguerd
Yellow Card
32' Aguerd catches Compagno with a stray arm and goes into the book. It is not a good decision from the referee as there was barely any contact.
30' Popescu is down for the home side and requires treatment before the game can resume.
29' Popescu surges down the left flank into space, but Downes tracks him back all the way and wins back possession for the Hammers. Great defensive work from the youngster.
28' Dulca tries to slide a throughball towards Cordea in the West Ham box, but Aguerd is alert to make the interception and clear.
26' The Hammers press down the left flank and win a corner that Lanzini swings into the box. He arcs his delivery into the middle, but it is too high for Ogbonna to attack and travels out for a throw-in.
24' West Ham are starting to work their combinations in the final third. Gaps are starting to open in the FCSB defence.
22' SAVE! Mubama is denied by Tarnovanu with a fine reaction stop on the line. Scarles delivers a dangerous cross into the middle from the left flank that Mubama attacks on the stretch. Tarnovanu spreads himself to make the block before gathering Fornals' effort on the rebound.
20' Downes makes a burst down the right flank and fires a low ball across the face of goal that evades Mubama.
18' Popescu gets his foot on the ball down the left flank for a run at Johnson, but the defender does well to force him backwards. There is nothing between the sides in the early stages.
16' The home side are finding space on the counter down the flank as West Ham have not quite found a rhythm to their passing game in the final third.
14' Radunovic whips the ball into the box and it is headed clear as far as Popescu on the edge of the box. He launches an effort at goal on the half-volley that clears the bar.
14' Lanzini brings down Popescu on the charge down the left flank and FCSB win a free-kick in a useful position.
12' Cordea finds space in the final third and looks for a strike at goal from 25 yards, but he places his effort harmlessly wide of the right post.
12' Areola comes off his line to gather a loose ball and there is miscommunication between the keeper and Ogbonna as to who gathers a punt forward by Compagno. The defender ends up taking it away much to the bemusement of Areola.
10' BLOCK! Fornals combines with Lanzini and drives to the edge of the box. He drills a strike at goal, but sees his effort deflected wide of the target.
8' The Hammers are getting their foot on the ball early and are putting pressure on the home side.
5' SAVE! Fornals latches on to a cutback from Aguerd and fires low and hard towards goal, but his effort is well saved by Tarnovanu before the home side scramble the rebound away.
4' Coufal takes a loose touch at the back and it forces Coventry to scamper back to edge the ball away from Compagno before he can threaten.
3' Cordea clips a cross into the box from the left flank, but the visitors manage to clear their lines through Mubama after the ball bounces in the penalty area.
2' Radunovic brings down Downes after losing possession, handing West Ham a free-kick in a useful position on the right flank.
1' We're under way in this Europa Conference League match.
West Ham United are unbeaten in their last five fixtures away from home in the group stages of European competitions (won four, drawn one), and have won each of their two games in the group stages of this season’s Europa Conference League.
Moyes makes 10 changes to his team from his line-up that was beaten by Manchester United, as only Downes keeps his place. Areola replaces Lukasz Fabianski between the posts, while Coufal, Ogbonna, Johnson and Aguerd get starts in the backline. Scarles, Coventry and Lanzini join Downes in the midfield. Fornals and Mubama lead the line for the Hammers. Mubama and Scarles make their first starts.
FCSB have made five changes to their side that lost to Universitatea Cluj last time out. Radunovic and Bouhenna come into the backline, while Oaida and Dulca get the nod in the middle of the park. Popescu starts alongside Compagno and Cordea in the final third.
WEST HAM SUBS: Darren Randolph, Krisztian Hegyi, Harrison Ashby, Kamarai Simon-Swyer, Keenan Appiah-Forson, Freddie Potts, Michael Forbes, Kaelan Casey, Regan Clayton, Lewis Orford.
WEST HAM (4-4-2): Alphonse Areola; Vladimir Coufal, Angelo Ogbonna, Ben Johnson, Nayef Aguerd; Oliver Scarles, Flynn Downes, Conor Coventry, Manuel Lanzini; Divin Mubama, Pablo Fornals.
FCSB SUBS: Andrei Vlad, Valentin Cretu, Florinel Coman, Ianis Stoica, Andrei Dumiter, Radu Boboc, Darius Olaru, Eduard Radaslavescu, Bogdan Rusu.
FCSB (4-3-3): Stefan Tarnovanu; Alexandru Pantea, Rachid Bouhenna, Joyskim Dawa, Ristu Radunovic; Razvan Oaida, Marco Dulca, Malcom Edjouma; Octavian Popescu, Andrea Compagno, Andrei Cordea.
West Ham have been extremely impressive in their Europa League Conference campaign to date, winning all five of their matches. David Moyes' men are through to the next stage of the competition at a canter, but will be looking to close out the group phase with a 100 per cent record. The Hammers were beaten last time out against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Moyes will be determined to re-ignite their momentum with a victory on the road.
FCSB have already been eliminated from the Europa Conference League after failing to win any of their previous five Group B matches. The Romanian outfit did hold Anderlecht to a 2-2 draw last time out in a spirited performance on the road. They will finish bottom of the group even if they are able to defeat the Hammers, but they will be determined to bow out with a strong display. FCSB did lose last time out in the Romanian Liga to Universitatea Cluj, prompting the departure of Nicolae Dica, so new manager Mihai Doru Pintilii will be looking for a response today.
