West Brom vs Sheffield United Prediction
These two teams just love to score goals. While the hosts hold the distinction of scoring the most in the league, and in home ties, their opponent has returned the third-best number in overall and in away ties.
In addition, West Brom has scored in 22 of their last 23 home-ties, and Sheffield did so in 12 of their last 15 matches on the road. Also, the guests of this tie did so twice or more in six of their last eight appearances away from home. In overall games, Sheffield scored two or more times in four of their last five attempts. Their last match alone saw them registering four.
And importantly, every encounter between these teams in the past decade has had over 2.5 goals and was distributed on either side of the pitch.
Keeping in mind all of these, consider that a win in this fixture will push the victor in the right direction for the title, and for promotion while halting the other’s progress temporarily, which at this closing stages of the tournament will have huge impacts. There’s all the chance in the world for the game to have more than two goals, with contribution from both teams nonetheless.
