West Ham United to double their points tally

The London Olympic stadium hosts a European fixture for the first time in five years. Moreover, it should be a winning return as favorites and 1965 Cup Winners’ Cup champions West ham take on Rapid Wien. In addition, boss David Moyes managed to qualify from all three of his UEL group stages so far.

West Ham won their opening game in Zagreb in a dominant fashion. In fact, Dinamo didn’t have any shots on the Hammers’ goal. Notably, Moyes’s team are having a fine Premier League start so far as well. With four wins two draws and one loss, West Ham are currently seventh in the PL table. Hence, three points against Rapid seem imminent.

West Ham Key Points

  • West Ham scored in nine of their last ten matches
  • The Hammers had four clean sheets in ten games
  • 2.2 is the average number of goals scored by West Ham in their last five home games

Rapid Wien not in the form for such a trip

It is a very bad start, to say the least for Rapid Wien in the Austrian Admiral Bundesliga. Just two wins in eight matches saw the Green-Whites lay in the 11th position of 12 in the table. Hence, coach Dietmar Kuhbauer’s team don’t look prepared for a trip to London. Especially after a 3-0 home defeat to Sturm Graz.

While third place means a place in the Europa Conference League, Rapid might even struggle to make that. Clearly, their away record in the UEL is not encouraging as they lost ten of their last 15 trips and won four. In addition three of the last five defeats in the UEL saw the Austrians lose by three or more goals.

Rapid Wien

  • Rapid won two of their last ten away matches
  • The Green-Whites have no clean sheets in their last five away games
  • The number of goals scored in Rapid’s last five away games id two or more

West Ham United vs Rapid Wien Prediction

With odds of 1.27 for a win, there is no doubt that the bookies are favoring West Ham to win this match. Therefore, most of the markets are of low value especially the ones concerning the home team. 

According to their form and stats, Rapid don’t seem to be capable of having an impact on this game. Unless coach Kuhbauer adopts a very aggressive and fierce defensive strategy to minimize the casualties.

However, a good value is found in the combos section at Vbet with the double chance and both teams to score market. Obviously, Rapid look far from scoring in this match, Thus a BTTS no and a home win look a possibility.
