Freiburg welcome West Ham to Germany for a Europa League Group A fixture.

The two sides will hope to continue strong starts to their continental campaigns - Freiburg were impressive in a 3-2 win at Olympiakos, while West Ham overcame Backa Topola.

David Moyes’s men ended a rough run in the Premier League with a solid performance against Sheffield United at the weekend, and would take a significant step towards progressing with a win away from home.

But Freiburg, though short of goals, have made an encouraging start in the Bundesliga and will hope to take control of the group.
