Both sets of travelling supporters are in Seville for their respective sides’ Europa League matches.
Frankfurt beat Real Betis in their first leg tie yesterday before Sevilla host West Ham this evening.
But plenty of Londoners headed out to southern Spain on Wednesday to extend the trip.
Uefa brought the Betis-Frankfurt game forward to avoid having two matches on the same night in the city.
However, that seemingly did not prevent crowd trouble.
Video footage allegedly shows hooligans supporting the Bundesliga side forming a large group and co-ordinating a choreographed attack on Hammers fans.
Another video shows chairs and tables being thrown and glasses smashed with people overheard shouting ‘come on West Ham‘.
It is unknown what sparked the furious animosity in the street outside the Irish bar.
Spanish police arrived on the scene of the ugly fracas.
As reported by The Telegraph, they fired rubber bullets in an attempt to de-escalate the angry and scary situation.
English football fans have previously encountered the full force of the heavy-handed Spanish police with Leicester visiting Seville and Madrid on their Champions League ventures in 2017.
Elsewhere, Manchester City and Chelsea supporters clashed with authorities in Porto at the Champions League final after bars closed.
Manchester United and Liverpool followers were reportedly targeted by Atalanta and AC Milan ultras respectively on their Champions League travels this season.
West Ham’s game with Sevilla kicks off at 5.45pm this evening.
