Wolverhampton Wanderers v Ipswich Town
England – League Championship.
Date: Tuesday, 16 August, 2016
Kick-off: 19:45 UK.
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Wolvehampton Wanderers will play host to Ipswich Town on Tuesday night for their third Championship game at Molineux Stadium Wolverhampton.
So far this season, Wolves have been good in the 3 games played, having kept an unbeaten status in all competitions. Wolves kicked off the season with an exciting 2-2 draw at Rotherham United and went on to win their next two games which includes a League Cup game against Crawley Town.
Wolves win over the weekend made it 2 wins in a row and 3 game unbeaten run in all competitions. Goals from M. Doherty and J Mason made sure the West Midland side grabbed all 3 points. They will be looking forward to another win to make it a hat-trick of win.
Meanwhile Ipswich lost focus after their first game of the season, they went on to lose the next two games. They opened the season with a convincing 4-2 win over Barnsley, but lost to Stevenage and Brentford sequentially. They now need to go back to the drawing board and reshape themselves as the season still looks fresh.
Wolves vs Ipswich: Head to Head
The West Midlands have a good home record against Ipswich, they have won 13 games at home against Ipswich and lost 5. Wolverhampton have score 34 goals at home and conceded 25 against Ipswich.
The last 3 games between these two sides have ended in draw, this makes Ipswich unbeaten in their last 5 games having won 2. Both teams have played a total of 63 games with Wolves winning 22 and Ipswich winning 24.
Wolves vs Ipswich: Prediction
The home team may repeat their weekend line up which gave them the victory, also their injured players are still out and wont return soon. Silvio is out for up to a month, while Zyro, J Graham, N Dicko, E Ebanks-Landell and Mike Williamson are still on long term injury.
Wolves are favorites for this game, on the back of their unbeaten run in the last 8 home games in Championship. Also they have kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 home games in the league. While, they have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 games.
A win for the Wolves could be backed with confidence. And I also expect a high scoring game, so over 3.5 goals is a possibility.
Wolves vs Ipswich: Tips
1) Wolves to win at 2.15.
2) Over 2.5 goals at 2.20.
3) Over 3.5 goals at 4.00 (risky).
