There were violent altercations involving West Ham United and Eintracht Frankfurt fans in Sevilla on Wednesday night.

West Ham fans were in Sevilla ahead of their side’s game against Sevilla on Thursday, while Frankfurt’s match against Real Betis in the Spanish city took place on Wednesday after being brought forward by UEFA for security reasons.

A video that has been shared on social media shows a group of Frankfurt fans appearing to target an Irish pub where some West Ham followers were drinking.

In the video, the Frankfurt crowd can be seen throwing bottles towards the pub, before West Ham fans respond in kind. The chairs were also used as projectiles.

According to The Telegraph, eyewitnesses reported that police intervened and used rubber bullets in an attempt to control the disorder.

Far from the shameful scenes on the streets, Frankfurt had a great night on the pitch.

The Bundesliga outfit won 2-1 against Betis, who are currently fifth in La Liga, in the first leg of their last Europa League encounter.

West Ham are seen as underdogs ahead of their first leg against Sevilla, who are currently second in the Spanish Premier League.

Sevilla are the most successful club in Europa League/UEFA Cup history, having won it six times since 2006.
