WHU vs RPD Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for West Ham vs Rapid Vienna Europa League Live Score October 1


WHU vs RPD Dream11: West Ham United have started their season, once again, very impressively. David Moyes’ second spell at the club has seen them nearly qualify for the UEFA Champions League and then this season they have lost just one of their opening eight matches in all competitions. That one defeat involving the Hammers missing a 94th minute penalty, as well. They now come up against a Rapid Vienna side that were hammered at the weekend at home to Sturm Graz. That defeat was their third successive loss in the league and their only win in their last six matches in all competitions came in the cup against Flyeralarm Admira. West Ham will expect to win this quite comfortably.
