West Brom vs Derby
Date: Tuesday, 14 September 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns.
West Brom have been the best team in the Championship so far, and are placed at the top of the table. Meanwhile, Derby have been one of the worst, and have been a mess on the road for the past several months. As such, expect the former to have the edge this Tuesday.
Brom were relegated from the Premier League at the end of the last campaign, as they finished 19th in a table of 20. They were totally out of place in the top flight, as they could manage to deliver just five wins.
However, the story has been totally different in the second division. Not only have they raced to the first position in the standings, but they have maintained an unbeaten run so far, and have scored the second-most number of goals in the competition as well.
In the meantime, Derby had narrowly avoided relegation the last season in the Championship, as they finished 21st in a table of 24 – with a one-point lead over the relegation cut-off.
And this time around, they have a 100% winless record so far disregarding a single fixture, and no other team has scored fewer goals than them as well.
As things stand, expect a win for West Brom at the Hawthorns.
