Wolves v West Brom Match Preview
Live coverage on BT Sport 1 at 12:30pm, Saturday 16th January 2021
- Wolves’ last 8 home matches have each involved under 3.5 goals
- West Brom’s last 7 away matches have each involved under 3.5 goals
- The Baggies have lost 11 of their 17 league matches
It would appear that Wolverhampton Wanderers are missing Mexican striker Raul Jimenez and with no wins from their last five outings it seems that their lack of a suitable replacement is proving costly. Nuno is very much a risk-averse sort of manager and his side are a tough nut to crack, however their attacking prowess has been somewhat diluted and we envisage goals being at a premium when they entertain struggling neighbours West Bromwich Albion at lunchtime on Saturday.
The Baggies have looked very much out of their depth since the start of the campaign and the bookies have them priced at odds-on to drop straight back down to the Championship at the first time of asking. Indeed even the arrival of Sam Allardyce has thus far done nothing to improve matters at the Hawthorns and if anything they have looked worse since his arrival, some signs of improvement being apparent before the sacking of previous boss Slaven Bilic.
West Brom have been struggling badly for goals this season and we don’t have much faith in them adding to their meagre tally this weekend. Indeed the likelihood is that a single goal will be enough to secure all three points in this one and we’ll be siding with Wolves to help themselves to it.
