Shrewsbury vs Wolves
English FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 26 January 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Montgomery Waters Meadow (Shrewsbury).
An underwhelming League One campaign did not prevent Shrewsbury Town from making a deep FA Cup run.
The third-division outfit stunned the likes of Stoke City in their third round replay which saw them trail by two goals all up until the 71st minute. They then bagged three in a ten-minute blitzkrieg at Bet365 Stadium to turn it completely around against a higher-division counterpart.
Can such win potentially inspire another FA Cup upset, this time against a top flight opposition?
It’s really hard to see such scenario coming knowing the visitors knocked out the likes of Liverpool in the previous round.
Ruben Neves was the hero as his 55th-minute effort pushed Wolves into the next round past the Reds. Wolverhampton Wanderers then lost 3-0 to Manchester City away at Etihad but only to return to winning ways instantly beating Leicester City in an amazing seven-goal thriller at Molineux seven days ago.
Diogo Jota notched a hat-trick on the occasion and all eye will no doubts be on him here at Montgomery Waters Meadow.
Shrewsbury vs Wolves: Head-to-head
The draw was the most frequent of outcomes in a short head to head history between these two likes.
It happened on three occasions in five matches as teams gathered a win apiece in remaining two outings.
None of past four H2H games saw three or more goals scored though.
Shrewsbury vs Wolves: Prediction
The Shrews sit just one point above the relegation zone in League One. They are on a poor run of three draws and two defeats in last three league affairs. Sam Ricketts’ troops failed to find the back of the net in any of last three league matches.
Knowing they are up against a team which hold the sky-high 8th position in the elite class standings, the away win looks to be a banker bet at 1.50 odds. We will alternatively back the visitors to keep things tight at the back at the odds of 2.10.
Shrewsbury vs Wolves: Bet Tips
Wolves to win @ 1.50 (1/2)
Wolves to keep a clean sheet @ 2.10 (11/10).
