Wolves vs Preston Prediction and Match Preview

Wolves vs Preston
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Tuesday, 23 August 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium.

Wolves have been a major presence in the English top flight for the past few years and the last time around they had missed out on European qualification by a whisker. Meanwhile Preston are from the second division, which is the Championship, and lately they have not been in a good run.

They have been terribly inconsistent in their recent fixtures and they have been letting in goals in huge numbers.

Particularly on the road they have not shown any kind of consistency all through the previous campaign and it appears that they have no intention to make any change to their form this time around as well.

Going on, Wolves have not had the best of starts to their league campaign in 2022-23. They are yet to get into their groove and as such they are desperately hoping for a confidence-boosting performance.

And as fate would have it, they are at home this Tuesday and will be taking on a rather weak opponent in the form of Preston. The hosts will consider this an opportunity to deliver a crushing win and thus build momentum, which will possibly help them in their Premier League games.

Moreover, they also have a superb head-to-head record against this opponent over the years. Taking in account all these observations, it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for Wolves this Tuesday.

Wolves vs Preston Prediction & Analysis

Wolves have lost a total of just twice in front of their home crowd in the past 4 months, but one of these defeats had come against reigning English champions Manchester City.

On the other hand, Preston were winless in 15 of their past 25 overall games and they had remained so in 7 of their past 10 road trips as well.

In addition, they also have not fared quite well in previous head-to-head meetings.

By the looks of things, expect a victory for Wolves this Tuesday.
