Both sides will feel this is a winnable tie particularly having already knocked out more highly-fancied opposition.

The Germans head to London with the memory of their famous win at Camp Nou still fresh in their minds, yet Eintracht have shown they can be defensively vulnerable, conceding in 16 of their last 18 matches in all competitions.

The Hammers have scored in 22 of their 24 competitive home matches this term and will fancy their chances of doing so again on Thursday evening.
