West Ham haven't visited Germany in European competition since a trip to Frankfurt in the 1976 Cup Winners' Cup but they'll be hoping this year's encounter is more successful. The Hammers lost 2-1 that day and are currently on a three-game losing streak, but with a Europa League victory now looking like their only chance of Champions League qualification, David Moyes' side will be looking to upset the odds.

The West Ham boss has made four changes to the side that lost to Arsenal on Saturday. Craig Dawson, Tomáš Souček and Michail Antonio replace Ryan Fredericks, Mark Noble and Saïd Benrahma, while Europa League goalkeeper Alphonse Areola takes the place of Lukasz Fabiański between the sticks.

Eintracht Frankfurt have won just two of their last 11 matches, but both came in the Europa League, including a famous 3-2 defeat of Barcelona at the Camp Nou and the first-leg victory at the London Stadium last week. With nothing to play for in the Bundesliga, Oliver Glasner's side will be going all out to reach their first major European final since 1980.

The Frankfurt boss has made two changes to the first-leg line-up, with Jens Petter Hauge replacing the injured Jesper Lindström, and Evan Ndicka replacing Almamy Touré in defence. 

It's an 8pm BST kick-off at Deutsche Bank Park tonight, Thursday 5th May 2022. Read on for more details on how to watch an Eintracht Frankfurt vs West Ham live stream wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Eintracht Frankfurt vs West Ham live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you've subscribed to the relevant Eintracht Frankfurt vs West Ham live stream service, you won't be able to access coverage from outside your own country. The service provider will know your location based on your IP address, and automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days (opens in new tab)
ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – you'll be surprised how simple it is.

3. Then head over to Paramount+ (opens in new tab) on your browser or device and enjoy the Eintracht Frankfurt vs West Ham live stream.
