It has been 41 matches since Bayer Leverkusen last tasted defeated, and the German side are just a single victory away from securing their first-ever Bundesliga trophy. Manager Xabi Alonso has already written his name into Leverkusen folklore, but if he can deliver a league title and a European trophy, the club’s passionate fanbase will probably start demanding a statue in his honor straight away. 

Naturally, Leverkusen are undefeated in the Europa League to date, having won all four of their home matches in the competition so far scoring at least three goals in each game. But West Ham will present arguably the side's toughest test in the tournament yet. The Hammers are inconsistent in the Premier League, but after winning the Europa Conference last year they have to mettle to perform when it matters on the European stage. 

However, West Ham have struggled slightly on their travels in this tournament. They lost away to Olympiacos in the group stage and needed to fight back from 1-0 down against Freiburg in the last round after suffering defeat in the first leg. But, the subsequent 5-0 win to book their place in the quarter-final showcased the attacking talent in the squad. Unfortunately, one of the goalscorers in that game, Jarrod Bowen, will miss this first leg.   

Here's how they line up: 

Bayer Leverkusen: Kovar, Stanisic, Tah, Tapsoba, Frimpong, Palacios, Xhaka, Grimaldo, Wirtz, Adli, Schick

West Ham XI: Fabianski, Coufal, Zouma, Mavropanos, Cresswell, Emerson, Ward-Prowse, Soucek, Paqueta, Kudus, Antonio
