West Brom vs Birmingham
EFL Championship
Date: Wednesday, 14 September 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns.

Supporters of West Brom are raising many questions this season, 75% of their matches have ended in stalemate this season. They will host Birmingham for a mid-week fixture at The Hawthorns.

The host have only won a single game this campaign, also they are winless in their last three league outings. It is worth noting that they are the only team in the bottom fifteen who have a positive goal difference.

In their last league outing, Brandon Thomas saved Baggies from suffering another narrow defeat, he managed to score the equaliser against Burnley in the 98th minute of extra time.
This season they have scored the same number of goals as Championship giants Norwich City in the league, which places them in the sixteenth position in the league table.

Meanwhile, Birmingham have lost half of the games they have played this season. However, they managed to win their most recent match against Preston by 1-0.

Maxime Colin found the back of the net in the 16th minute. This ended the three-game losing streak for John Eustace’s side.

A win for Steve Bruce’s team in this fixture will help them climb to seventh in the table.

West Brom vs Birmingham Head-to-head

  • Birmingham won the most recent head-to-head encounter. It was a narrow 1-0 victory.
  • In the last ten meetings between both sides, Baggies have won seven matches.

West Brom vs Birmingham Prediction

Birmingham have endured a miserable season in the Championship this year and are in real danger of being relegated to the third tier. Till now they have only managed to win just two games out of eight.

Steve Bruce’s side sit just eight points off the foot of the table, with their leaky defense a major worry as they are yet to keep a clean sheet in five matches in all competitions.

We can expect a tightly contested match between these two sides this Wednesday.

Therefore, our prediction is that West Brom will win this game by a narrow margin- at 6.50 odd. This is after considering the team’s unbeaten streak of five games.

Also, our next tip for this game will be that Karlan Grant to score in the first half – at 5.00 odd. Against Wigan, he scored a goal in the 22nd minute of the game. Also, he has scored three goals in his last eight appearances.
