West Ham United is looking to keep their perfect start to the 2021-22 Europa League alive when they will take on Genk at the London Stadium on Thursday. So far, while the visitors are in third place after one win and one loss the Hammers have won both games without surrendering a goal. Here is our expert guess on West Ham vs Genk football prediction for the Europa League match of the season.

Team news

West Ham

Alex Kral will miss the match as he is tested COVID-19 positive but David Moyes hopes to have Mark Noble and Tomas Soucek available for this match.

Ryan Fredericks is still out and Vladimir Coufal is also unlikely to return, Ben Johnson appears to be a safe bet to keep his spot at right-back.

In both of West Ham’s Europa League games so far Moyes has started Michail Antonio, indicating that he wants to finish the competition as soon as possible.

For the Hammers, Manuel Lanzini, Nikola Vlasic, and Andriy Yarmolenko are vying for starting positions in attack.

Genk

Last time out in the Europa League Daniel Munoz received a red card and has been suspended from the Genk squad. For the away side, Angelo Preciado will fill in at right-back.

West Ham vs Genk Prediction

As soon as possible David Moyes wants to get West Ham into the knockout stages and with back-to-back 2-0 victories over Dinamo Zagreb and Rapid Wien the Hammers have gotten off to a flying start in Group H.

Genk has lost three games in a row and four of their past five in all competitions. They were blasted 3-0 by Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League last time out, and they are heavy underdogs now.

In West Ham’s last four games, there have been fewer than 2.5 goals scored (Europa League).
