West Ham vs Freiburg: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results and odds today

West Ham need a second-leg comeback as they host Freiburg in a crucial Europa League last-16 decider tonight.

The Hammers were denied a late chance to level the first leg last week with a huge penalty shout after the referee refused to overturn his original decision after looking at the pitchside monitor following Michael Gregoritsch’s opener.


Tomas Soucek saw his attempt to keep the ball alive blocked by the Freiburg winger Noah Weisshaupt, and VAR ordered a review.

Despite the resulting check lasting almost five minutes, match official Alejandro Hernandez did not change his initial decision.

David Moyes must now rely on his side to turn things around at home. Their European run has largely been a case of smooth sailing over the last 12 months but now the Scot wants his team to use the penalty drama as motivation.

Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s game.
