West Ham confident Europa League semi won't be hijacked by Eintracht Frankfurt fans

West Ham are confident their Europa League semifinal home-leg won't be hijacked by Eintracht Frankfurt fans like in Barcelona.

Last week, around 30,000 German supporters took over the Camp Nou.

Despite away fans only being allocated 5,000 tickets, thousands more Frankfurt supporters acquired seats to watch their side sensationally knock out Barcelona in Spain last week.

The Bundesliga side were roared on to a shock 3-2 win to seal a 4-3 aggregate triumph and set up a Europa League semi-final meeting with West Ham, who overcame Lyon.

West Ham are confident that the right security arrangements will be in place when they face Frankfurt in the first leg next Thursday, says the London Evening Standard.

The club expect most home tickets to sell out to season-ticket holders and the game is not expected to go on general sale, stopping Frankfurt fans from buying tickets in the home end.
