Sheffield Wednesday vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
England – League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 28 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Hillsborough Stadium, Sheffield.
Wolves took just one point from two matches at the start of their top flight adventure, but they earned a massive confidence-booster by holding the defending champions Manchester City to a 1-1 draw in the first game of the Matchday No 3 on Saturday afternoon at Molineux. Last term Championship winners will be looking to build on such success and keep the momentum on Tuesday evening when they travel to Hillsborough to take on Sheffield Wednesday in the second round of the League Cup.
The Owls will also come into the game in higher spirits following surprising back-to-back home wins over Millwall and Ipswich Town. These victories climbed the team up to the 14th place in the league ladder after Jos Luhukay’s men got off to a rough start winning one point in the opening two rounds.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Wolverhampton Wanderers: Head-to-head
Wolves lead the head to head tie by 15 wins ahead of their 75th encounter with Sheffield Wednesday.
It is interesting to note that one a single goal was seen in past three head to head outings.
Wolves took four points from past term meetings with the Owls (in Championship) who failed to find the back of the net in last three H2H matches.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Wolverhampton Wanderers: Prediction
Lucas Joao and Fernando Forestieri look to have found the wanted shape and Sheffield Wednesday would certainly be dangerous with their strongest line-up here. Luhukay used a very strong side in the 0-2 victory over Sunderland two weeks ago away at Stadium of Light and we’d not be surprised to see one of these two players on the pitch from the very first minute of the game.
Wingers Marco Matias and Adam Reach bagged goals in the mentioned victory over the Black Cats and we expect them to inspire the potential upset against Wolves here. The visitors will make their first appearance in the competition here at Hillsborough. They certainly have a bigger depth in their ranks and it is no wonder they head into the game as favourites.
Since last term H2H meetings between the two sides offered two very tight affairs, backing a low-scoring contest just has to be the way to go here.
