Europa League Football Prediction – West Ham vs Rapid Vienna

Meanwhile, their visitors lost 1-0 to Genk in their first group stage game.

Team News

West Ham

  • David Moyes fielded a surprisingly strong XI in West Ham’s first Europa League match. This indicates that he intends to take this competition seriously before the fixture schedule becomes too busy.
  • Nonetheless, there’s no reason why Moyes should not show any faith in a few squad fringe players, like Alphonse Areola.
  • Thus, Ryan Fredericks is the only player whom we expect to be out.

West Ham United possible starting lineup: Areola; Johnson, Dawson, Ogbonna, Masuaku; Rice, Kral; Vlasic, Lanzini, Yarmolenko; Antonio

Rapid Vienna

  • Rapid Wien will be missing four players when they travel to London on Thursday to face West Ham.
  • But they may field a team similar to the one that lost at home last time out in the competition.

Rapid Vienna possible starting lineup: Gartler; Stojkovic, Greiml, Hofmann, Ullmann; Arase, Aiwu, Grahovac, Grull; Kara, Fountas

Europa League Football Prediction – West Ham vs Rapid Vienna

  • West Ham kicked off their Europa League campaign with a 2-0 win away to Dinamo Zagreb. The Hammers have only lost one of their first eight matches across all competitions. And even that one defeat came after missing a stoppage time penalty against Manchester United (the football news).
  • On the other hand, Rapid Wien’s season has become a nightmare. They are on a four-game losing streak in their last six games. Also, they began their Europa League group stage campaign with a 1-0 loss at home to Genk. So, they will be considered heavy underdogs at the London Stadium on Thursday.

West Ham have more than enough quality to defeat their opponents on Thursday even if Moyes uses a rotated squad,.

The Irons’ trip to Croatia demonstrated their determination to win this tournament.

So, we expect them to post another dominant victory to take control of the group.
