Derby County vs Wycombe
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 28 November 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Pride Park.
These two teams are the worst in the Championship this season, and are placed 22nd and 24th in the table. It would have been 23rd and 24th if not for the federation deducting six points from Sheffield Wednesday and placing them in the second to last spot.
Anyhow, both the Rams and the Chairboys have the worst defenses in the tournament, and have conceded a total of 39 goals from their combined 26 matches. In fact, they have a total of three wins between them from their combined 26 fixtures.
With the season entering its next phase, the two squads are under immense pressure, and if they fail to act now they would be playing catch up for the whole of the season – and it would in all probability end in at least one of them being relegated.
Suffice it to say that nerves are at an all-time high at both camps, and with defense failing to rise to the occasion so far for either team – expect goals in plenty this weekend.

- In a rare occurrence in England, these two teams have not fought against each other so far, despite having existed for quite long.
Derby vs Wycombe: Prediction
The Rams lost 3-0 on the road the last match-day, against Middlesbrough. The hosts slotted in their first goal in the 33rd minute, and though the visitors tightened up their defense after that, the home team managed to get two more goals towards the end of the game.
In the meantime, Gareth Ainsworth’s men were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Huddersfield.
Going on, the Chairboys were winless in 12 of their preceding 15 overall fixtures, and in the process they had gone through a nine-game losing run as well. On the road, they had lost six of their former seven games, and had also lost 11 of their preceding 15 match-ups away from home.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a winless run of nine fixtures, and they had remained so in 21 of their preceding 23 games. Do also note that they had failed to keep clean sheets in 21 of their preceding 23 matches.
And at home, they had failed to keep their nets clean in 16 of their past 18 appearances.
Taking these stats into account, it’s a given that either team will give their 100% on the pitch for the win – and with the out-of-form defense on both sides, expect a high-scoring game.
