Wolves vs Bristol Rovers
English Carabao Cup , Season 2017/18
Date: Tuesday, 19th September 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Premier League promotion candidates, Wolverhampton, will host League One’s 15th place occupants, Bristol Rovers, in the 1/16 finals of Carabao Cup.
The Wanderers are the second best team in the Championship in the new season accumulating 17 points in the first 8 rounds.
Wolverhampton eliminated Southampton on St.Mary’s Stadium in the previous League Cup match and are favorites to kick out the Rovers as well.
Important to mention is that Wolves lost only 1 match since the start of the new Championship season.
The Pirates have sailed in the wrong direction in the new season as they stand on the 15th place of League One coming after 2 back to back defeats.
Despite the poor form in their league, the Rovers played decently in the cup. They won 4-1 against Cambridge and 1-0 against Fulham.
Wolves vs Bristol Rovers: Head to Head
This is the first match between the Wolves and the Pirates, so there are no head to head statistics.
Wolves vs Bristol Rovers: Prediction
Taking into consideration Bristol’s good form in the League Cup and the fact that Wolves will most likely concentrate on Premier League promotion rather than the cup, it deserves taking a look at the asian handicap market.
We should see Bristol defending tightly and counter-attacking while Wolves will try to score with a improvised first eleven.
