Watford vs Wolves
English Premier League

Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road.

Wolves look for their first win of the campaign when they travel to Watford on Saturday evening.

The managerial change seems to have a negative impact at Wolverhampton and the team is yet to put a point on board under Bruno Lage.

After losing three games on the bounce, all by the same 1-0 margin, Wolves start the matchday 4 of the 2021/22 season from relegation zone.

Watford on the other hand lost to Tottenham 0-1 and Brighton 0-2 after starting the season on a positive note. Both were away games and Xisco and co will be happy to return to Vicarage Road, where they defeated Aston Villa 3-2 on matchday 2.

The Hornets will be desperate to emulate the home form they showed in the promotion campaign last season, losing 2 of the 23 with a healthy goal aggregate of +32.

Watford vs Wolves Head-to-head

  • The teams shared 2 wins each from the 4 meetings during Watford’s last Premier League spell between 2018 to 2020.
  • At home, Watford have a record of 6 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses from the last 14 games across all competitions.
  • They have not won a back-to-back home games against Wolves since 1994,
  • Both teams have scored in 5 of the last 6 meetings at this ground.

Watford vs Wolves Prediction

The Hornets will back themselves with a strong record at home in recent years against a team like Watford that managed just 5 wins from their last 20 away games.

Scoring goals has been a problem for Wolves this season, they did struggle last season as well, especially in travels with an average 0.78 goals per game.

Watford won 2-1 when they welcomed Wolves to this ground last time and I expect a similar narrow win for the home teams.

We also identify this a tight clash with both teams putting safety first, thus under 2.5 goals come in handy as a decent alternate. Saturday’s visitors saw more than 2 goals in just 36% of their away games last season.
