David Moyes’ side were supported by a sell-out away contingent of 1,600 passionate fans.

Since Piraeus is about 40 minutes’ drive from Athens airport, many fans were taken to the stadium by bus.

When one arrived at Karaiskakis Stadium, he appeared to have met a parking attendant.

In a video posted on social media by a West Ham fan Anthony HuftonThe bus could be seen crashing into a fence, which then hit the security guard.

He was then thrown several meters through the air and landed in a heap before getting back up, seemingly unharmed.

The clip was later shared on Twitter by Football Away Days.

In response to the video, one fan wrote: “Hahahahaha what a dive this is.”

While a second joked: “Want a diving booking.”


West Ham had a bad evening on the pitch.

Kostas Fortounis gave the home team the lead in the 33rd minute before Rodinei made it 2-0 just before half-time.

Lucas Paqueta opened the scoring for Moyes’ men in the 87th minute, but it was too little, too late.

After making seven changes for the game, the West Ham manager defended his team selection.

He said: “Look, we changed a lot of players tonight, the Premier League is coming up and we have a League Cup game next week, and we won the first two games in the group, which gave us scope to make changes tonight.

“But perhaps I have to acknowledge that we didn’t win the Conference League games that easily because they were all difficult games, but coming to Olympiakos Piraeus after an away win in Freiburg – which was a good result – that was but no good result was no good performance.
