West Brom – Derby Prediction (2020-07-08)

West Brom – Derby : Preview & Prediction

Founded in 1878, West Bromwich Albion Football Club won the England Championship in 1920. After 8 seasons in the Premier League, the club was relegated after the 2017-18 fiscal year. Fourth last year, the club failed to recover. This year, the club is second, only 1 point behind leader Leeds, and plays the title. With 5 and 7 points ahead of its pursuers, the climb should not escape them this season, knowing that there are only 15 points left to distribute!

Derby County, which lost 2-1 to Aston Villa in the play-off final for the Premier League, saw their dream of returning to the top flight. Having not tasted the Premier League since a historic 2007/2008 season (in which the club finished 20th with 1 victory in 38 games, an all-time record in England), Derby still has hope this season. With 3 points behind on 6th place, the first roadblocker for the PL accession, nothing is impossible, and the team of Wayne Rooney can always believe it!

West Bromwich Albion is 7th in the Home Championship with 9 wins, 8 draws and 3 losses.

West Brom scored 40 goals and conceded 25 in 20 home league games. Which makes it the best attack, tied with Bentford.

Since the resumption, West Bromwich started off badly with a draw and loss, then went on to win 2.

Derby is 18th in the away league with 5 wins, 5 draws and 10 losses.

Derby County has scored 25 goals and conceded 38 in 20 away league games. Which makes it the second worst defense.

Since the resumption, Derby has won its first 3 games before drawing in its last game against Nottingham.

West Brom, in the race for the title but especially for the direct rise in the Premier League, will have a lot to face a Derby County 7th and undefeated since the postcovid recovery. But the players are capable of it, and can take a big step towards the rise in the event of victory. West Brom to win!
