AEK Larnaca 0-2 West Ham United
West Ham United 4-0 AEK Larnaca
(West Ham United won 6-0 on aggregate)

West Ham United’s first-ever trip to the Mediterranean island of Cyprus ended in a decent 2-0 victory over First Division runners-up AEK Larnaca in early March.

On a warm night and in front of a loud and colourful 6,654-strong crowd at AEK Arena – Georgios Karapatakis, the Hammers overcame a slow start to secure a useful two-goal advantage through Michail Antonio’s neat header and accurate long-range shot.

The tie was all but over when Gianluca Scamacca scored the opener at London Stadium a week later, and was all over then AEK midfielder Gus was sent-off for fouling Pablo Fornals a minute before half-time.

A second-half brace from Jarrod Bowen and a maiden senior strike from Divin Mubama secured a comfortable aggregate victory and a place in the quarter-finals.
