Thursday night proved largely a good one for British teams in European action.
In what had been billed as something of a grudge match, the Hammers returned to the top of Group A after Freiburg had put the pressure on earlier in the night by beating Backa Topola.
That victory ensured the Irons will be playing European football in some capacity after Christmas.
One of the biggest shocks of the night, however, came in Toulouse. Liverpool were beaten 3-2 to lose their 100% record on the continent this season, with the Reds denied what would have been a dramatic late goal due to VAR.
