Ahead of their Europa League tie against Sevilla, a group of West Ham and Eintracht Frankfurt fans clashed after the German side’s win over Real Betis.
West Ham fans have been involved in running clashes with Eintracht Frankfurt supporters ahead of their Europa League last-16 tie against Sevilla on Thursday.
Footage on social media appeared to show a group of Frankfurt fans, also in Seville after their team played Real Betis in the Europa League on Wednesday night, march towards West Ham supporters outside a bar, before bottles and chairs were thrown by both sets of fans.
West Ham manager David Moyes had said on Wednesday that up to 10,000 Hammers fans were travelling to the Spanish city for the first leg of the club’s Europa League last-16 tie, despite the east London club only receiving an official allocation of 3,000 tickets from UEFA. -Reuters
