Europa League: West Ham Set To Battle Eintracht Frankfurt




English side, West Ham are set to play Eintracht Frankfurt in their first leg match up of the Europa League semi-finals at home.

West ham manager, David Moyes showed great confidence in his players.

In a Pre-match conference He said: “I think our home form this year’s been pretty good. We’ve had some good results.

“I think we’re worthy of it. Beating Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea shows that on our home patch on our day, we can be a good match for any team.”

David Moyes is the first Scottish manager to reach the semi-final stage of the Europa League since 2007-08, when Walter Smith took Rangers all the way to the final.

West Ham have reached the semi-final stage of a major competition for the first time since 2013-14, when they lost 0-9 on aggregate against Manchester City in the League Cup.

David Moyes’ last semi-final came in the other League Cup semi-final that season, with his Manchester United side being eliminated by Sunderland.

While on the other hand Eintracht Frankfurt have kept just one clean sheet across their last 18 Europa League matches, conceding in each of the last eight in a row. Despite conceding in eight straight games, they remain unbeaten across those matches – they are the first team in Europa League history to concede in eight or more games in a row without being beaten.

Eintracht Frankfurt are the fourth side to reach the semi-finals of the Europa League still unbeaten having partaken in the group stages in two of the previous competions.
