Birmingham – West Bromwich, Championship Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BIRMINGHAM - WEST BROMWICH
Birmingham is not in the relegation zone, just because of their better goal difference, but their shape is not good. They are one of the three teams without a victory as they have recorded 4 draws and 2 losses. Fortunately, these losses are by 1-0, but as guests. From what they have shown so far, we can conclude that the blues are likely to struggle again to survive. Overall, they are in a 9-game series without a win.
West Bromwich started with a loss their season, which came from Bolton as a host by 1-2. Then, however, the Throstles recorded 5 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in all competitions. The loss came from Middlesbrough as a guest in the last minute. The match was quite equal then. West Bromwich last participated in the championship in 2010 and now aim to return very quickly to the elite of England. Currently they are doing well and their performance is good. They rely heavily on their coach, Daaron Moore, who has won the hearts of all of The Hawthorns since he was appointed in the last rounds in the Premier League last season.
Birmingham have only 1 win in the last 6 games between these two opponents. In the past few years, they have almost not played against each other, because they were in different leagues, but West Bromwich seems to be better at the moment. We expect a tough and low-scoring victory for the Hawthorns, but our prediction is WBA – DNB at 1.68. This is just in case of a potential draw.
