West Brom and Villa set for Midlands derby draw

West Brom and Villa set for Midlands derby draw

On Friday night, West Brom and Aston Villa clash at the Hawthorns in a Midlands derby clash.

West Brom are third place in the Championship, four points behind second-place Leeds United in the race for promotion.

The Baggies are four league games unbeaten in the second tier, having recorded three wins and one draw. A 1-1 draw at Brentford last time out ended a three-game winning run in the league.

Although West Brom’s recent league games have not been ultra-high scoring, six of their last seven matches have seen both teams score, including their last four games.

The Baggies have been tough to beat at the Hawthorns in the Championship, losing just one of their last nine matches. The home side has only won one of their last four league outings on home soil. Both teams have scored in ten of their last 11 home league games.

Aston Villa have fallen to eighth place in the Championship table, despite a good recent run of form. In fact, the Villans have won four of their last five league games, while scoring at least two goals in their last five Championship matches. The visitors attacking prowess has led to over 2.5 goals scored in Villa’s last four matches.

Villa have won just two of their last nine away games in the Championship. However, those two wins have been in the Villans last two league games on their travels, so there are signs of improvement from Villa on the road.

The Villans recent Championship away games have been high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five matches.

There is not much between these two Midlands rivals, so unsurprisingly Forebet predicts that this clash will finish in a high scoring draw.
