The UEFA Europa League returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Sevilla welcome West Ham United to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the first leg of their round-of-16 clash on Thursday.

The La Liga outfit had to overcome a dogged Dinamo Zagreb side in the playoff round, while the Hammers secured a first-placed finish in the group stages.

Sevilla continued to struggle for consistency as they were held to an uneventful goalless draw by Alaves in La Liga last Friday.

While they are unbeaten in all but one of their last nine games across all competitions, they are winless in three of their last four, claiming two draws and losing one.

Sevilla will look to find form on their return to the Europa League, where they claimed a hard-fought 3-2 win over Dinamo Zagreb in February’s playoff tie.

Meanwhile, West Ham failed to move into the Europa League qualification places last time out as they fell to a slender 1-0 defeat against Liverpool in the Premier League.

Prior to that, David Moyes’ men were dumped out of the FA Cup courtesy of a 3-1 loss at Southampton on March 2.

They have now turned their sights to the Europa League, where they enjoyed a fine group-stage run, finishing top of Group H with 13 points from six games.
