Our prediction for this Europa League match:
London Stadium will host Thursday’s Europa League semi-final between West Ham United and Eintracht Frankfurt. The Hammers aim to make amends for an unlucky Premier League defeat to Chelsea, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at die Adler. Since all Rice, Bowen, and Antonio are back to the starting XI, home win should be considered. To make things even better for the hosts, important defender Aaron Cresswell is back after missing the Lyon game through suspension.
The Bundesliga outfit, on the other hand, outplayed Barcelona to make it to the Europa League semis. West Ham United, though, are a real force to be reckoned with at home, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on David Moyes’ troops. Defender Obite Evan N’Dicka is banned for the visitors as he was sent off in the Camp Nou Triumph, while all Ramaj, Lenz, and Ilsanker are likely to miss the game with injuries.
