The UEFA Europa League is back in action with the semi-finals this week as West Ham United take on Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.

Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and will want to win this game to progress to the final, with Frankfurt holding a 2-1 advantage from the first leg.

Eintracht Frankfurt are in 11th place in the Bundesliga standings and have not been at their best this season. The home side suffered a 2-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen last week and will need to bounce back in this fixture.

West Ham United, on the other hand, are in seventh place in the Premier League table and have been fairly impressive so far. The Hammers slumped to a narrow 2-1 defeat against Arsenal in their previous game and have a point to prove this week.
