West Ham United are targeting their second win in Group H of the Europa League when they entertain Rapid Wien on Thursday evening.

The English Premier League club kicked off their title drive with a 2-0 win at Dinamo Zagreb. Michail Antonio and Declan Rice netted goals in either half to lead the Hammers at Stadion Maksimir.

West Ham lost to Manchester United 2-1 in the Premier League in their next game but have since bounced back with victories over Man U (1-0) in the Carabao Cup and Leeds (2-1) in the Premier League. 

Rapid Wien suffered a heartbreaking 1-0 home defeat to Genk in their opening assignment. The match seemed headed into a draw when Paul Onuachu nailed the game winner in injury time.

The Austrian club are coming off a 3-0 home defeat to Sturm Graz in domestic play. They have lost five of their last six matches in all competitions. Their only win during that stretch was an extra-time triumph at Admira in the Austrian Cup.

Verdict

West Ham are in fine form so we are backing the hosts to secure a comfortable victory.
