Eintracht Frankfurt vs West Ham
Date: Thursday, 5 May 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Deutsche Bank Park.
These two teams might have made it to the semifinals of the Europa League, but it needs to be mentioned that both of them are going through dismal streaks at the moment.
They are conceding goals in huge numbers, and basically have turned almost all of their recent fixtures into high-scoring affairs.
Frankfurt have seldom won in the last several weeks, and particularly so at home. However, the fact they are just 90 minutes away from a potential showdown for a major trophy will motivate them to deliver one of their best performances this season.
Meanwhile, West Ham are fighting battles on two fronts as of now. They are trying their absolute best to climb into the top most tier of the English top flight, as they need to make sure that they qualify for one of Europe’s premier competitions next season.
On top of that, they have to take care of their Europa campaign as well. In case they fail to make it to the top six of EPL, they will have to make sure that they lift the Europa. Because only then will they be able to represent England in the next edition of the Champions league.
As these two battle it out for a ticket to the final, expect a fierce encounter this Thursday. And considering their recent defensive performances, anticipate goals in plenty.
