Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Arsenal Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Saturday, 4 July 2020. Kick-off 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET at the Molineux Stadium.
The Wanderers are locked in with the Red Devils for the race to finish fifth or better in the table. As of now, both teams are level on points, and with the season fast approaching its final match-day, time is running out for them to take a definitive lead.
However, this weekend provides a great opportunity for one of the squads to pull ahead. The Red Devils are taking on Bournemouth, one of the worst teams in the whole competition, while Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are pitted against the Gunners.
Mikel Arteta’s men are in possession of the final European ticket. However, the Spurs are just one point below them, and they do have a match in hand. Suffice it to say, that the former do not have the luxury to drop points.
As such, we are in line for a great game this Saturday. Both teams are chasing after European spots, and coupled with their in-form offense, it’s anticipated that there would be plenty of goals at the Molineux Stadium.
Wolves vs Arsenal: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Four of the previous five encounters had goals from both teams.
- Not once have Santo’s men kept a clean sheet against this rival.
- Ten of the previous eleven wins had gone to the Gunners.
- Disregarding a single match-up, 100% of clashes at this venue had three or more goals.
- The latest meeting at this ground ended in a 3-1 win for the hosts.
Wolves vs Arsenal: Prediction
The Wanderers recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Aston Villa. Though it was expected to be an easy outing for the guests, the relegation-threatened Aston Villa gave too much of a fight for them.
In the meantime, Arteta’s men registered a 4-0 win at home the past game week, against Norwich. Desperately needing the three points, the home team delivered – and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was easily the star of the day.
By the looks of things, both squads will be ready to battle fiercely on the pitch the whole of ninety minutes. For the Wanderers – if they drop points, Manchester United might run away with the final CL ticket, while for the Gunners – should they drop points, the Spurs might get the final Europa ticket.
In short, three points are a must for both teams. On top of that, encounters between these two sides have always produced lot of goals, and particularly so at this venue. Both squads are on three-match winning runs and have been scoring at will lately.
Going on, disregarding a single h2h game at this venue over a decade back, 100% of face-to-face clashes over the years have had three or more goals, and not once have the Gunners failed to score here.
Finally, it’s the final stretch of the season, and nerves will surely play a role. It’s highly likely that we will witness a goal-fest this Saturday.
