Blackpool vs West Brom Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Blackpool vs West Brom
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 23 November 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Bloomfield Road.

West Brom are desperately trying to hold on to their third position at the moment. They had set sights for promotion right from the start of the campaign, and have done reasonably well so far.

Direct promotion looks a bit difficult though, as only the top two teams are afforded that. As of now, the team would be targeting a playoff berth – which are allotted to teams placed third to sixth in the table.

However, their immediate objective would be find a solution for their recent struggles on the road. They are on a poor run away from home as of now, and a match-up against the inconsistent Blackpool might be the perfect opportunity to get back into their groove.

The inference is that we are about to witness a win from the determined West Brom.

Blackpool vs West Brom Prediction & Analysis

Blackpool were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, by Swansea. They are on a three-game winless streak, They were also winless in eight of their preceding thirteen appearances at home, and seven of these were losses.

On the other hand, West Brom lost 1-0 on the road against Huddersfield.

Still, they have been one of the best teams in the Championship in 2021-22, and they even have the experience of spending their previous campaign in the top flight – with some of the best teams in the world.

Judging these observations, as well as past h2h stats, expect a win for West Brom.

Going on though, their defense has been a bit shaky on the road lately, while Blackpool have consistently found the back of the net at home.

As such, anticipate goals from both sides of the pitch this Tuesday.
