TSC vs West Ham United Full Match Reports

West Ham United navigated through a lackluster performance, clinching a 1-0 victory over TSC Bačka Topola with Tomáš Souček’s 89th-minute winner. This outcome places the Hammers in a position where they merely need to avoid defeat on matchday six to secure the top spot in the group.

With progression almost assured, David Moyes implemented seven changes to his starting XI from the weekend’s 2-1 win against Burnley. The impact of these alterations manifested in a disjointed West Ham side that struggled to assert itself in the first half. In contrast, the UEL newcomers, Bačka Topola, appeared more composed, enjoying the upper hand throughout the initial 45 minutes and coming close to breaking the deadlock.

Despite their maiden campaign’s modest goal tally of four and a solitary point, the home side created promising opportunities in the first half. The best chance arose when Aaron Cresswell carelessly surrendered possession on the edge of his own box, allowing Aleksandar Ćirković to attempt a goal-bound effort, which Łukasz Fabiański managed to save. In an otherwise subdued first half, this represented the closest either side came to scoring.

The lackadaisical play of West Ham persisted in the second half, struggling to fashion clear goal-scoring opportunities. TSC continued to appear more likely to secure an opener, with Uroš Milovanović testing Fabiański’s reflexes just past the hour mark.

While West Ham seemed destined to face the challenging task of defeating Freiburg on the final matchday to top the group, Souček emerged as the hero in the 89th minute. He volleyed in Maxwell Cornet’s cross at the back post, securing a crucial victory for Moyes’ side. Now, the Hammers need only avoid defeat against the German side on matchday six to secure the top spot in Group A. In contrast, TSC must secure a win against Olympiacos to climb off the bottom of the table.

Man of the Match: Łukasz Fabiański (West Ham United).
