The Europa League is this week and West Ham United could secure their place in the knockout stages, while Leicester City, Celtic and Rangers have got some work to put in if they are to continue their European journeys. Here is all you need to know about matchday five.

Rapid Vienna v West Ham United

David Moyes’ side have been an exciting force on the domestic and European stage this season and a positive result in Austria will confirm their place in the knockout stages to top off an incredible year. The hosts have no chance of qualifying and have only managed one win in the first four games.

Where: Allianz Stadion, Vienna

When: Thursday 25th November, 5:45pm

How To Watch: BT Sport 1

Sportsman Stat: This is Rapid Vienna’s 300th match in European competition – including qualifiers, becoming the first Austrian side to reach the milestone.

Betfred Odds: Over 2.5 West Ham goals is 2/1.

Leicester City v Legia Warsaw

Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea at King Power Stadium on Saturday and their home form has been a massive concern, even going back to last season. They need to avoid defeat if they want to be in control of their fate heading into matchday six. Legia Warsaw occupy second spot, one point ahead of the Foxes – so this will be a crunch match for Leicester who did lose the reverse fixture to the Polish side.

Where: King Power Stadium, Leicester 

When: Thursday 25th November, 8pm

How To Watch: BT Sport 2

Sportsman Stat: Legia Warsaw have faced 97 shots in the Europa League this season, 20 more than any other side. Despite that, six teams have conceded more goals than the Polish outfit (7).

Betfred Odds: Both teams to score is 6/5

Rangers v Sparta Prague

Giovanni van Bronckhorst will oversee his first game in charge of the Gers as they welcome Sparta Prague to Ibrox Stadium. He will be thrown in at the deep end as it is a must-win game for the Scottish side if they are to have a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages. After suffering a Scottish League Cup semi-final defeat against Hibernian on Sunday, the Dutch manager will demand a response from his players. Both Rangers and Sparta lie on four points in Group A and the Gers will have Lyon to face on matchday six.

Where: Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow

When: Thursday 25th November, 8pm

How To Watch: BT Sport 3
