Genk lost three consecutive matches in all tournaments and we think that Belgian club's streak will continue. West Ham are looking confident in the EPL and in the Europa League and they are in a much better form in comparision with their opponent.
In our opinion, visitors have no chance to avoid defeat - Genk's defense is far from perfect, so they are unlikely to contain the opponent's offensive line. We think that hosts will pick up three points in this match and they should be able to do it in a confident manner.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1.5) on West Ham

English side is scoring many goals at home and they are yet to concede a goal in the Europa League. The Hammers' offense is extremely powerful, they create many goal opportunities and convert many of them. Visitors will try to answer on counter-attacks, they are quite successful in games like this, so they should be able to score. In our opinion, we will see a high-scoring game.
Our second bet is on total over three goals
