West Ham vs Rapid Vienna: Smooth success for Hammers

Kick-off: 2000, 30/09/2021

Stadium: London Stadium

TV: BT Sport

West Ham are already on course to enjoy another successful season under David Moyes and should see off Rapid Vienna in the Europa League.

The Austrian outfit travel to London on the back of four straight defeats and have gone three matches without scoring a goal.

It is hard to get away from 21/20 for a home win to nil as our first West Ham vs Rapid Vienna prediction.

A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds

West Ham have only lost one of their eight games this term, when a last-gasp penalty miss allowed Manchester United to prevail 2-1 here in the Premier League.

The Hammers responded by beating the Red Devils 1-0 in the EFL Cup at Old Trafford, where Moyes gave many fringe players a chance to show their worth.

Saturday brought another fine victory at Leeds, with Michail Antonio grabbing a stoppage-time decider.

“Great character from the players,” beamed Moyes. “We had a difficult week, at Old Trafford on Wednesday and then Elland Road, but it was a great win for us.”

Antonio was also on target in a 2-0 triumph away to Dinamo Zagreb to begin this competition, a result which earned us a trio of successful selections.

With six goals in as many games for the club this term, 11/10 for him to net again in a home win obviously stands out from the West Ham vs Rapid Vienna odds.

A Look At Rapid Vienna’s Betting Odds

Rapid came through a couple of qualifying rounds but are up against it in this pool after going down 1-0 to Genk in Vienna first up.

Ebere Onuachu had already seen one strike ruled out for offside by VAR when pouncing on a superb cross from Junya Ito in stoppage time.

Dietmar Kuhbauer’s side looked very shaky when trying to deal with balls into the box and Moyes will have taken note of that.

Rapid are second from bottom in Austria’s Bundesliga following Sunday’s 3-0 drubbing by Sturm Graz, which was a third consecutive loss in that division.

They were beaten twice by Arsenal when finishing third behind the Gunners and Molde during last season’s group stage and look to have gone backwards since then.

We’re taking 3/1 for the Hammers to enjoy a cosy success by any two-goal margin to complete our West Ham vs Rapid Vienna betting tips.
