How the Europa League Groups stand


The Hammers go into their Group A Europa League match heading the table with Freiburg a goal difference worse off and Olympiakos and TSC in third and fourth positions.

It is probably also worth looking at the other groups and in  B Brighton are bottom below AEK Athens, Marseille and Ajax above them. That looks a particularly tough group.

Group C sees Sparta Prague leading Rangers, Aris Limassol and Real Betis while D sees Atalanta on top above Sporting Lisbon, Sturm Graz and Rakow Czestochowa.

Group E sees Liverpool on top ahead of Toulouse, Union Saint Gilloise  and Lask whilst F has Rennes ahead of Panathinakos, Villareal and Maccabi Haifa.

G sees Slavia Prague and Roma ahead of Sheriff Tiraspol and H has Bayer 04 Leverkusen leading Qarabag, Molde and Hacken.

Olympiakos and TSC meet tonight in our group whilst Liverpool are at home to Union Saint Gilloise and Brighton are away at Marseille.
