  • End of 2nd Half

FULL-TIME - West Ham are Group H winners after a professional performance earns them a 2-0 win in Austria.


We're into the last of three additional minutes.


Substitution: Double change for the host's, Fountas is replaced by Oliver Strunz as Robert Ljubicic makes way for Srdjan Graovac.


Rapid Wien get a rare break away, but West Ham get so many men behind the ball so quickly, they run out of options and are dispossessed.


Rapid Wien can't get the ball off West Ham who continue to cause the home side problems. Benrahma, Fredericks and Fornals all combing well as they continue their search for a third.


Almost an instant impact from Perkins! Coufal whips in a cross that finds the youngster completely free in the Wien box, but his header was tipped over the bar. It was a good effort considering the cross was an inch behind him.


Substitution: West Ham make two changes, Masuaku and Vlasic are replaced by Ryan Fredericks and Sonny Perkins.


Substitution: Arase is replaced by Thierno Ballo


Benrahma looks to get a shot away at goal, but pressure from Hofmann forced the West Ham man to drag his effort wide


CHANCE! Rapid Wien come close to pulling one back! Arase drives down the right flank and plays a ball in towards Fountas, whose strike it off target.


Yarmolenko breaks down the right hand side and as he looks to pull the ball back to an oncoming Benrahma, the linesman flags for offside.


There are just over 20 minutes remaining plus additional time, and West Ham are still pushing for a third.


Substitution: Triple West Ham change. Soucek, Lanzini and Bowen make way for Said Benrahma, Fornals and Kral.


Substitution: Two Rapid Wien changes to tell you about. Kitagawa and Knasmullner have been replaced by Ercan Kara and Marco Grull.


CHANCE! Another two chances squandered by the Hammers! First Soucek had his one-on-one effort saved before the rebound found Bowen, who's shot was blocked on the line! West Ham should be cruising.


GREAT CHANCE! Bowen has two brilliant chances to extend West Ham's lead. He was slipped through down the right side of the area for the first, but his effort was palmed away. The visitor's kept possession, Bowen received it once again on the left and cleverly weaved his was in between two players before getting another shot away, which was saved.

He'll be frustrated with himself that he isn't on the scoresheet so far tonight.


Fountas looks like Wien's post likely source of a goal. He has another shot but blazes it well over.


Masuaku breaks down the life side again, and looks to tee up Bowen on the edge of the box, but his pass is intercepted on the edge of the box.


Wien look to counter through Fountas but West Ham recover brilliantly and Yarmolenko prevents the attack.


West Ham aren't going to sit back and defend this 2-0 lead, they want more. The visitor's are getting plenty of men up the pitch and have started the second half with a high intensity.


West Ham look to break through Lanzini, but his pass to unleash Bowen was a second too late and blocked by the Wien back line.

Vlasic played in a fantastic ball from the left-hand side which Yarmolenko rose highest to latch on to and head West Ham into the lead.


GOAL! West Ham lead, Yarmolenko on target!


Coufal makes a run down the wing and screams out in pain after Moormann clips his ankle following a good challenge. The West Ham man is back on his feet.


It's been a scrappy few minutes from West Ham who have lost possession a number of times in the middle of the pitch. Wien gradually growing into this game.


Masuaku has looked sharp offensively and has just been called into defensive action for the first time, and done well to recoup possession and play his way out of trouble.


Noble looks to play a ball over the top of the Wien defence for Yarmolenko to run on to, but his almost inch perfect effort is hooked away.


Chance Wien! Kelvin Arase breaks away down the left and cuts inside on his right foot in the penalty box, but his effort is straight at Areloa who is untroubled.


Coufal fires a ball across goal but the goalkeeper comfortably collects.


Wien clear the ball for a corner, But Bowen can't beat the first man and is cleared.


Yarmolenko wins a free kick high up the pitch in a dangerous position.


Yarmolenko fires over! West Ham utilise both flanks in this move as well as they have all game so far, but when the ball was cut back for Yarmolenko to strike, it was always travelling over the crossar.


Good effort from Fountas! Left-back Martin Moormann gets high up the pitch and cuts a ball back for the Wien striker, whose shot is a dangerous one but just over the bar. Warning for the Hammers!


West Ham are making it hard work for Wien. They look controlled and sharp defensively, getting plenty of players behind the ball when out of possession.


Fountas is ok and back on the pitch.


The ball is put out of play whilst Fountas of Wien receives treatment for a minor knock to his ankle.


Rapid Wien can't seem to get the ball off West Ham, and are struggling to contain Yarmolenko and Coufal down West Ham's right flank.


Another half chance for West Ham. After a spell of possession in the final third, Nikola Vlasic unleashes a strike just outside the box but it's blazed over.


It's been a positive opening ten minutes for the Hammers, they've enjoyed the majority of the ball and have managed to create a handful of chances in the opening exchanges.


Again Masuaka involved in another West Ham move. He tries to pick out Bowen again but Wien clear.

West Ham are looking dangerous from the flanks.


CHANCE! Great chance for Bowen, Arthur Masuaka plays an inviting ball into the box but Bowen couldn't quite connect with the ball which trickles wide.


Wien have a corner after their first attack at goal, but Soucek clears.


West Have started confidentially. Diop carries the ball forward from centre-back but is dispossessed, the visitors win the ball back and earn another corner, but it doesn't trouble the hosts.


The corner is cleared but West Ham retain possession.


Straight away West Ham apply pressure, and have won a corner.

  • 1st Half

We're underway


COUNTDOWN: Five minutes until kick-off.


There are no fans in the stadium tonight, Rapid Wien have been ordered to play one game behind closed doors, which hasn't seemed to impact them too much, considering there is also a lockdown in Austria currently.

Moyes commented on the atmosphere during his pre-match media duties.

" I think it's something we hoped we'd never see again and that supporters would be back and we'd never be in this situation again."

Advantage West Ham? Ten minutes until kick-off.


West Ham have already confirmed their place in the knockout stages, which has given David Moyes the chance to slightly rotate his team.

He's made eight changes from their loss to Wolves on Saturday, with Michail Antonio and Lukasz Fabianski left at home to rest.

Johnson, Zouma, Cresswell, Rice, Benrahma and Fornals are the other names to make way, all dropping to the bench.


The last time these two met in the opposite fixture on matchday two, was the only time the two side's have met in history.

West Ham ran out 2-0 winners, Declan Rice and Said Benrahma on the score sheet that night.

Both players start on the bench for the visitor's tonight.

West Ham United's Said Benrahma celebrates scoring his side's second goal during the UEFA Europa League group H match between West Ham United and Rapid Wien.

Some Rapid Wien trivia for you as we warm-up for this one.

The hosts are in desperate need of a win tonight to have any real hope of qualification.

We're 45 minutes away from kick-off.


A win in Vienna for David Moyes' side tonight will see them go through to the knockout stages as group winners.
