The Wolves and West Brom face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Molineux Stadium.
The Wolves currently sit in 14th place in the standings having picked up 14 points so far this season. The Wolves got out to a fast start to the season but they have hit a rut and there have been some real struggles as of late. The Wolves last game came against Everton and the defense let them down giving up two goals. Ruben Neves did put one goal in the back of the net in the 14th minute but it wasn’t enough. This is a defense-first team, so to have success, they need the defense to be good because the offense usually can’t make up for the struggles. So far this season the Wolves have put 19 goals in the back of the net while their defense has given up 26 goals. In this game the defense needs to be good early to make life tough on West Brom.
On the other side of this matchup is West Brom who currently sits in the relegation zone. West Brom is sitting in 19th place in the standings with eight points picked up so far this year. Much like the Wolves, West Brom isn’t a great offensive team so for this team to have success it’s all about the offense getting going. West Brom’s last game came against Arsenal, and the defense really let them down, giving up four goals. West Brom only had 38 percent of the possession in that last game and only three shots on goal. On the season, West Brom has put 11 goals in the back of the net while the defense has given up 39 total goals. Conor Gallagher is the only player this season who has put more than one goal in teh back of the net and he has only put two goals in.
These are two teams who are going to struggle to score in this game and it’s going to be no different in this game. Look for a low scoring game that stays well under the posted total.
