Genk vs West Ham United Prediction

Genk's convincing victory over the weekend would have boosted confidence in the team and this could propel them to a positive result against West Ham.

The visitors are in fine form and their positive run of results does not look likely to end anytime soon.

David Moyes' side are favorites for the game although they are unlikely to underrate the threat posed by Genk. We are backing West Ham to secure a narrow victory with goals to be scored at both ends.

Prediction: Genk 1-2 West Ham
