West Brom vs Sheffield United
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 28 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns.
These two are the worst two teams in the whole competition, and are placed 19th and 20th in the table. Experience is also majorly lacking for both of these squads – as the Baggies were promoted to the top flight just this season, while their opposite number had made it to the EPL just a season before.
So far this campaign, the teams are yet to win a single fixture, and from their combined 18 matches so far they have posted a total of four points.
Going on, defense has also been a major problem for both these teams. Slaven Bilic’s men have conceded the most number of goals so far in the tournament, while their counterparts are just behind – having conceded merely three goals fewer.
Moving on, majority of h2h clashes over the years have also witnessed goals in plenty, and with either team being desperate for the three points this weekend – chances are high for the fixture to turn into a high-scoring thriller.
West Brom vs Sheffield United: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Three of the preceding four matches had goals from both teams.
- The past fourteen overall wins were evenly split into seven each for both squads.
- Since 1997, the guests have failed to score just once at this venue.
- Meanwhile, the Baggies had scored two or more goals in three of the former four fixtures.
West Brom vs Sheffield United: Prediction
Bilic’s men lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Manchester United. In the meantime, the Blades lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against West Ham.
Going on, the Baggies were winless in 15 of their preceding 16 match-ups, and the sole win during this stretch had come against a team from the lower divisions.
At home, they were winless in seven of the past eight appearances, and do note that they had conceded three or more goals in three of their last six home games.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a 12-game winless run (of which ten were losses), and they are on a five-match losing run on the road. They had also conceded two or more goals in four of their preceding five away fixtures.
This weekend, a win is a must for both these teams, and with the leaky defense on both sides of the pitch – it’s inferred that goals will come in plenty.
