When Rapid Wien visit the London Stadium on Thursday for matchday two of the UEFA Europa League 2021-22, high-flying West Ham will be looking to build on their opening-game victory.
In their first match in Croatia, the Hammers defeated Dinamo Zagreb 2-0, with goals from Michail Antonio and Declan Rice giving them all three points.
They’ve had a strong start to the new season, and a win in Europe this week would significantly boost their chances of reaching the knockout rounds. In their first group match, however,
Wien were defeated 1-0 at home by Belgian side Genk.
Paul Onuachu scored in the 92nd minute to put the Austrians to the sword. Head-to-Head
