Now, we bring you the latest form and team news from the camps of both teams:
After playing out a draw in the league over the weekend, Sevilla look to restore confidence in the hearts of their fans, who had to deal with a loss in their last European encounter. The Spanish side remain second in the league behind Real Madrid, 8 points off the summit, and are unbeaten in 5 league matches (3 draws and 2 wins).
In Europe, Sevilla came through unscathed from their Round of 16 encounter with Dinamo Zagreb, winning 3–1 at home and losing in Zagreb by 1-0. Julen Lopetegui’s men have scored thrice in the Europa League, having come into the fray courtesy of an early Champions League exit, and have conceded twice.
For their team news, Sevilla have one player suspended for this fixture (Thomas Delaney) and eight others who are injured. Loanee Anthony Martial will miss this match, along with Erik Lamela, Karim Rekik, Fernando Reges, Gonzalo Montiel, Diego Carlos, Suso, and Papu Gomez.
On the back of their controversial 1-0 loss over the weekend, West Ham travel to Spain to continue their quest for continental honors in their maiden UEL appearance. The London club are on a two-game losing run, after a five-game unbeaten run in all competitions, and look to halt that trend against an opponent that has continually triumphed against English sides.
The Hammers sit 6th in the league and are in a tough contest for European spots, with Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester United, and Wolves in the fray. In Europe, they won their group with 13 points from a possible 18, losing 1, drawing another, and winning 4. Mohammed Said Benrahma is the man in form for the Hammers in Europe with 3 goals to his name so far.
For injuries and suspensions, West Ham have four absentees as Jared Bowen, Vladimir Coufal, and Angelo Ogbonna are injured, while Ukrainian Andriy Yarmolenko is unavailable to play.
