West Brom vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction
West Brom picked up back to back wins before heading into the international break, after coming out on top against Stoke and then Hull, both of which were on the road. At the moment, the hosts are sporting a slender two-point lead at the top.
It is also worth mentioning that West Brom are yet to stumble at home this season, and are unbeaten in their last six games here. The home side have picked up the win in half of those clashes, and have garnered twelve points from a possible eighteen in the process.
Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, have not had a taste of success in their previous three fixtures in a row. Their last clash at home saw them share the spoils with Swansea in a 2-2 draw, prior to which they lost to Blackburn by a 2-1 scorecard.
The visitors have also been hit by a sharp decline in form on the road, and have admitted defeat in two of their previous three outings. To pile on even more misery, Sheffield’s last win against this foe here came way back in the year of 2007, that too by no more than a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
With the stellar run of form that West Brom are on, the hosts are likely to be too hot to handle for the struggling Sheffield Wednesday.
Furthermore, the Baggies have not been shy in racking up the goals tally, especially in front of the home crowd. The hosts have been scoring no less than two goals or more in each of their last five games here, and have amassed fifteen goals from those clashes alone.
As such expect more of the same this weekend too, as a high scoring affair is definitely in the reckoning.
