All eyes will be on London Stadium when West Ham United and Bayer Leverkusen square off against each other in the Europa League quarter-finals, return leg. The Hammers need a big win in the reverse fixture in order to make it to the semis and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the newly-promoted Bundesliga champions. Kalvin Phillips is a major doubt, while defender Konstantinos Mavropanos should be fit for the match despite limping off with injury in a 2-0 loss to Fulham.

The bad news for the hosts is that both Emerson and Lucas Paqueta are banned for the match. Xabi Alonso’s men, on the other hand, clinched their first Bundesliga trophy thanks to a thrilling 5-0 win over Werder Bremen and seeing that the Liverpool target rested key players at the weekend, away win should be considered.

Prediction: 1-2 (Bayer Leverkusen)
