Watford vs Wolves: Preview and Prediction

England Premier League
Saturday 11th September 2021
Kick off at 3pm BST
Venue: Vicarage Road

Match Preview:

Here are two teams that will have to fight tooth and nail in an ever increasingly competitive Premier League and it wouldn’t be a surprise if both of these clubs struggled. That is why for one of them getting all 3 points at the weekend would be huge.

The Hornets are in 12th place and come into this game having lost their last 2 in a row. Those defeats have come against Brighton and Tottenham. The Tottenham defeat though was only by 1-0 and they had chances themselves though most were wasted. Still it wasn’t a terrible result given that they were away from home. Indeed this game is the clubs first at home since the opening weekend when they beat Aston Villa so the fans will be up for this one and hopefully for them so will the players.

Are Wolves still licking their wounds from losing Nuno Espirito Santo as manager to Tottenham? Life has not started out well for new manager Bruno Lage in the Premier League as Wolves have lost all of their 3 games so far. They have had some tough games though including Manchester United and Tottenham and have only lost each one by 1-0.

So not only are Wolves looking for their first win but also for their first goal, There is a feeling that everyone associated with the league would love to see Raul Jimenez score after his horrific head injury last season, could this be the game to do it in?

 

Team News: 

Watford: Feminia is out through a lack of match fitness. Ben Foster won’t make this game because of his hamstring injury but the club are hopeful that he will be back next week. Joao Pedro will be assessed ahead of the game because of fitness issues.

Wolves: There are no new injuries for the club but key player Pedro Neto is out won’t return until December because of his knee injury.

 

Watford vs Wolves Head to Head:

The last time the clubs played here in 2020 Watford won 2-1.

There is a 70% chance to see both teams to score.

The last 0-0 between the clubs happened back in 2005.

 

Watford vs Wolves Prediction:

As many would expect this is going to be a close call. Based on the few weeks we have witnessed it seems that Watford are going to struggle on the road so they need to make their own stadium hard to play at. They beat Aston Villa here already and were in fact 3-0 up in a stunning start for the club at one point.

Wolves seem directionless, there is a problem with the club but at the same time perhaps having a stop gap via the international break has helped them? We will back the away side, but with the draw covered on the refund for extra safety, we will also back the traditional method in this fixture to see both sides to score.
