Genk vs West Ham: Hammers to maintain momentum

Kick-off: 1745, 04/11/2021

Stadium: Luminus Arena

TV: BT Sport

West Ham have built up a ton of momentum this term and we see no reason to oppose them when visiting Genk in Europa League Group H.

The Hammers powered to a 3-0 victory when these teams met in London a fortnight ago, giving them maximum points from three outings in this pool.

David Moyes isn’t the type to mess about and get too clever with his team selections, so 9/10 for United to oblige again makes sense for our first Genk vs West Ham prediction.

A Look At KRC Genk’s Betting Odds

Genk were far from disgraced when losing out to Shakhtar in a Champions League qualifier and began this section by winning 1-0 away to Rapid Vienna.

However, they were crushed 3-0 at home by Dinamo Zagreb on Matchday 2 and that began a five-match losing run in all competitions.

The Smurfs held firm for a while at London Stadium but only had 37 per cent of the possession and that proved decisive in the end.

John van den Brom can at least now take heart from big back-to-back wins in the Belgian Cup and the Jupiler League, netting six times on each occasion.

This is a step up in class again, though, so Genk vs West Ham odds.

A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds

West Ham kicked off with 2-0 victories over Dinamo in Zagreb and Rapid in London, with the impressive Declan Rice scoring in both matches.

Craig Dawson, Issa Diop and Jarrod Bowen then did the damage versus Genk, with each home match attracting close to 50,000 supporters.

United are in a commanding position, six points clear of the other three teams, but Moyes gave no hint of easing off following that Matchday 3 success.

He declared: “We have to go to Genk and Vienna. This is the bit everyone is looking forward to – the away trips for the fans, the players and the families as well.

“From that point of view, it’s still new, still fresh and we’re really enjoying it.”

With Sunday’s 4-1 Premier League win at Aston Villa keeping West Ham fourth in England’s top flight, there is some concern that Moyes may have one eye on this weekend’s visit of Liverpool.

However, even when making changes this season, the Hammers have knocked out both Manchester clubs in the EFL Cup, so the feelgood factor runs throughout the squad.

Let’s finish off our Genk vs West Ham betting tips by taking 4/1 for Draw HT/West Ham FT.
