Wolves vs West Brom Prediction & Match Preview

Wolves vs West Brom Premier League Prediction by LeagueLane

Wolves vs West Brom
England Premier League
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-Off at 12.30 UK
Venue: Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are nowhere close to the form which secured them a spot in Europa League last season. They have won only one out of the last eight Premier League games, which had a massive impact on their standings. Team is currently 14th with 22 points, which is still way above the relegation zone.

WBA are arriving at Molineux Stadium on early Saturday afternoon, which is an excellent opportunity for hosts to end the bad run. Wolves to win are currently offered at low 1.44 odds. Can Sam Allardyce pull out a miracle and save the Baggies from relegation?

Wolves vs West Brom Head-to-head

  • It’s been nine years since the last head to head meeting between these two sides. Back in 2012 WBA demolished Wolves at this stadium 5-1 FT.
  • Five out of the last seven duels ended Under 2.5 goals.
  • All-time stats are also going in favour of Baggies who won 37 games, in comparison to Wolves’ 33.

Wolves vs West Brom Prediction

Coach Nuno Espirito Santo was furious after losing the mid-week clash to Everton 1-2. Wolves were not outplayed in that match by any means, but still eventually got defeated. The only notable results in the last 30 days were home draw against Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 and surprising 2-1 victory against Chelsea FC.

Meantime they got defeated by Burnley and Manchester United. Jota’s departure to Liverpool has left a huge hole in the offensive line. Top goalscorers at the moment are Pedro Neto and Jimenez with four goals each. The current stats at Molineux are three wins, three draws and three defeats.

As for their opposition, WBA are one out of two teams in the league which failed to secure one victory on the road. They are 3rd worst team in division when it comes to scoring, managing to bag only 11 goals in 17 appearances.

Slaven Bilic was replaced by Sam Allardyce and that change had a minor impact. Baggies avoided defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City.

We don’t think they will survive Molineux though. Hosts seem determined to end the bad series.
