Frankfurt vs West Ham
UEFA Europa League
Semi-finals, 2nd leg
Thursday 5 May
21:00 CET kick-off
The Hammers have failed to score in four of their last six away fixtures across all competitions and have a poor away record. Hence, they are unlikely to score in a fixture where the hosts are likely to defend with all their might.
Seven of the last ten matches at this venue have witnessed fewer than three goals. A similar trend is observed in four of the Londoners’ last six fixtures on the road. Therefore, do not expect a high scoring fixture.

Frankfurt vs West Ham: Pre match conference
Oliver Glasner, Frankfurt coach: “With our fans behind us, we’re going for a win from the first second, and our approach has to be to challenge their defence. We need an even better performance than in the first leg.”
David Moyes, West Ham manager: “I don’t think I learnt anything new about Frankfurt [from the first leg] because I knew about the style they play in. I thought the two teams were quite even on the night. We may see something different tomorrow night, but we think we’ve got as good an opportunity as them. We have to chase the game because we’re one goal down, but in the same breath, they’re the ones who have to protect it.”
