Tonight’s winners will play Rangers or RB Leipzig in the final. Scott Murray is watching that match.
“Dear Rob,” Rob Lewis writes. (From the biblical Antioch on the Turkish border with Syria.) May the best team win? No, Rob that’s not really going to work. I hope the irons, with the brass knobs, win. I just took our party out for kebabs and kunefe tonight, if my generosity might spur the powers-that-be And residing in the sky above to look at us kindly tonight.
“I also sold my soul and promised myself that we could lose to Spurs in the next three seasons and I won’t talk about it, as long as we get the desired result tonight. I hope Clarett and the Blues win. COYI.”
I just feel nervous.

Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the UEFA Europa League semi-final match between Eintracht Frankfurt West Ham in Deutsche Bank Park. This is then. For Frankfurt and West Ham, only two extreme feelings are available tonight: unimaginable euphoria or unbearable distress.
One group of players will be in Seville on May 18 for the final. The other piece of land will be in the house, each with a face like a flattened stern. Frankfurt are the likely favorites after their embarrassing 2-1 win at the London Stadium last week, but West Ham’s task looks more difficult than impossible.
There are two reasons for this: overseas trips are not as mysterious or intimidating as they once were, and the scrapping of the away goals rule means West Ham may have to score just one goal to take the game into overtime. Last season they needed at least two. George Graham Road at Anfield 89 Getting to the first half at 0-0 and seeing where the chips fall next – may be honored by David Moyes tonight. Or only West Ham can Blow up bloody doors In the first half as they did in Lyon in the quarter-finals.
Both teams are very comfortable on the counter-attack, so don’t be surprised if they play the send-off with a territorial advantage. Frankfurt have won only five of their 21 home games this season. They don’t need to win tonight, a draw is good, but this record should give West Ham hope. There isn’t much hope that a 2-1 lead gives Frankfurt, mind you.
There are no two ways, this is a huge night for both clubs, and a chance to secure a once in three generations chance by reaching a European final. Frankfurt was the last time I did that 1980West Ham in 1976And- Look, you little piece of wasted space, I’ve told you before, Inter Toto Cup 1999 does not count.
RB Leipzig or Rangers Wait in the final. Let the best team win.
