West Ham have started the campaign in fine form and may feel that European qualification is a realistic target once again this season. At this early juncture of the season, the Hammers sit in seventh position, having won three, drawn two and lost just one of their Premier League fixtures thus far.

After their European adventure began with a comfortable 0-2 away win over Dinamo Zagreb, David Moyes men can put themselves in a very commanding position in the group with another victory here and the odds suggest they shouldn’t face too many problems in taking all three points.

Rapid Vienna have endured a terrible start to the Austrian Bundesliga season, despite their 2nd placed finish last time out. With nine games on the board, Grun-Weißen have picked up just eight points and find themselves sitting in the second-bottom spot in the table.

That poor league form was carried into Europe for Rapid as well as they got off to a losing start at home to Genk on Matchday One, despite beating Ukranian outfit Zorya Luhansk in qualifying. With confidence low, they could be in for a long night in the English capital on Thursday.

West Ham vs Rapid Vienna: Match Stats

Michail Antonio still sits joint-top of the Premier League trophy with five goals to his name and it’s no surprise that he’s looking for goal at every opportunity at the moment with 25 shots taken in the league thus far. Against weaker opponents, he could be afforded plenty of chances to get shots at goal here.

Rapid Vienna have struggled desperately for goals of late, failing to score in three of their last four matches. David Moyes’ progressive West Ham outfit are built on a solid defensive base. The Hammers have kept three clean sheets in their last five games, so we’re backing a home win to nil for them on Thursday night.
