West Ham's Europa League journey ends as Leverkusen holds firm

Posted : 18 April 2024

West Ham's hopes of advancing in the Europa League were dashed as Jeremie Frimpong's late goal secured Bayer Leverkusen's progression and denied the Hammers the opportunity to be the first team to defeat the German champions.


Despite Michail Antonio's early header providing a promising start for West Ham in their quest to overturn a two-goal deficit from the first leg, they struggled to breach Leverkusen's defense again despite dominating the first half.


Although Jarrod Bowen came close with a chance saved by Matej Kovar, Leverkusen emerged stronger in the second half, with Frimpong notably missing an earlier opportunity before sealing the match with a late strike, extending Leverkusen's remarkable unbeaten streak.


The loss marks the end of West Ham's European campaign at London Stadium, with the team receiving applause from supporters for their memorable three-year journey in European competitions, highlighted by last season's Europa Conference League triumph, their first major trophy in 43 years.


While West Ham maintains an outside chance of securing European qualification for the fourth consecutive season, their recent Premier League struggles and uncertainty surrounding manager David Moyes's contract expiration add layers of complexity to their future prospects.
