Birmingham vs West Brom Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Birmingham vs West Brom
English Championship
Date: 10 February 2023, Friday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: St. Andrew’s Stadium (Birmingham).

Birmingham’s fans breathe easier after last weekend’s win over Swansea City away on Welsh soil. The victory in a seven-goal thriller at Stadium ended the Blues’ run of five consecutive losses in the Championship.

John Eustace’s troops are now eight points above the relegation area and can approach Friday’s tie against West Brom in a much more relived fashion.

Birmingham were 3-2 down ahead of the 90th minute of the affair against Swansea but Lukas Jutkiewicz and Auston Trusty found late stoppage-time goals to turn the game around and take their team to a huge three-pointer six days ago.

The team’s top scorer Scott Hogan was also on the scoreline last Saturday, taking his league tally to ten goals this term.

Birmingham will now host 6th-placed West Bromwich Albion who returned to winning ways by beating Coventry 1-0 last Friday on the home patch.

The Baggies now have ten wins in the last twelve league affairs and they will come into this tie as the favorites for a reason.

Their offensive unit should have plenty of space to deliver on Friday past the leaky back line of Birmingham’s, knowing the Blues shipped at least three goals in three of the previous four Championship affairs.

Birmingham vs West Brom Head-to-head

  • Birmingham will come into this encouraged by two consecutive wins in the H2H clashes against the Baggies.
  • However, the Blues own a negative overall record in the home clashes with West Brom, winning 19 and losing 20 of the previous 52 outings at St. Andrew’s Stadium.
  • Both teams scored just once in the previous five head to head matches.

Birmingham vs West Brom Prediction

West Bromwich Albion broke into the top-six in the Championship ladder with a streak of ten wins in the last twelve league outings. Birmingham, on the other side, lost five of the last six matches in the competition, conceding three or more goals in three of the previous four Championship affairs.

West Brom to win & Over 2.5 goals FT is a very exciting betting option at the 3.50 odds, while we also fancy Grady Diangana, who made the difference seven days ago against Coventry, to score anytime at the massive 5.50 odds.

Birmingham vs West Brom Betting Tips
