Watford vs Wolves
England – FA Cup
Date: Sunday, 7th April 2019
Kick-off at 16.00 UK/ 17.00 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).
These two teams are currently the strongest disregarding the top-six usual suspects in England. It’s only fitting that the FA Cup final-four games see a tie between these two. The Premier League is definitely out of reach for both these squads, and the domestic cup represents an opportunity to grab silverware this season.
Wolves have been a revelation this season. They were promoted to the top division, after presenting some great performances in the Championship last year. And they have picked up from where they have left. They have gained notoriety for their top-notch games against the powerhouses of English Football.
Watford considers their home a fort. It’s tough to beat them there, and this year they have made some good signings. Manchester City still remains a credible threat in the FA Cup, but Watford will take one game at a time.

Watford vs Wolves Prediction
Watford won their last four home ties in a row and was unbeaten in six. They were also unbeaten in 16 of their last 21 fixtures. But point to be noted, is that, the team is strong at home, especially against teams below the top-six positions. The team lost just five times in their last 19 attempts at home. The losses came against Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Bournemouth.
On the other hand, Wolves struggle on the road. They are winless in their last four away matches and remained so in ten of their last fourteen. Also, keep in mind that, the last time these two met, Watford had recorded an away win.
With the home advantage, expect Watford to avoid a loss. Regarding goals though, the awe-inspiring Wolves will not be silent. They may not be that much of a threat on the road, but they sure do know to perform well under pressure. Their series of performances against the top-six is evidence enough.
Expect both teams to get on the scoresheet, which will aid them in their quest to lift the only probable title left in grasp. Considering all other competitions are hopeless now, the teams should give high priority to this game. Goals are sure to come from both sides. Importantly, most matches between these teams have seen the BTTS option being checked.
