West Ham are bidding to reach the Europa League final for the first time today when they face Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany.

The Bundesliga side stunned east London last week by snatching a 2-1 first-leg victory to kick off their semi-final meeting, Jarrod Bowen hitting the woodwork twice for the Hammers.

But Eintracht have continued to struggle domestically and dropped to 11th in the the German top-flight ahead of this clash, after a defeat to Bayer Leverkusen prolonged their winless run in the league to seven games.

West Ham are not faring much better with their heroics at Lyon in the last round their only win in seven across all competitions.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs West Ham prediction

The Hammers pulled off a stunning away day masterclass at Lyon last month but Eintracht are a more wily opponent.

The first leg showed their ability to hurt West Ham on the counter and, if the game wears on without a goal for the visitors, they will be forced to come out of their comfort zone and open up.

A 1-0 Eintracht win.
