Reason For West Bromwich Albion vs Derby Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in each of the last six meetings between these two clubs.
  • Both teams have scored in 70% of West Brom’s home games.
  • Both teams have scored in 60% of Derby’s away games.
  • West Brom have won nine of their 20 home games and Derby have lost ten of their 20 away games.

West Brom have only lost three times at home this season

West Brom and Hull City produced a six-goal thriller at The Hawthorns on Sunday, where the hosts ran out 4-2 winners which keep the pressure on the league leaders Leeds whom they trail by 1pt. Derby County made it five games without a defeat as they drew 1-1 at home against local rivals Nottingham Forest on Saturday and now sit 7th in the table, 3pts off the playoffs.

These two sides met for their reverse league fixture back in August where a penalty in each half saw the two clubs share the spoils. Waghorn put Derby in front in the 6th minute but Danish striker Zohore equalised for the Baggies six-minutes from time and the scoreline ended 1-1. Derby head into Wednesday’s clash as the form favourites with four wins, one draw and one defeat from their last six matches but West Brom’s form has picked up of late, with the hosts securing wins in their last two league games.

Derby are much stronger at home than they are on the road

Our prediction for both teams to score on Wednesday evening carries plenty of weight as the hosts don’t keep many clean sheets in their own backyard and the visitors have kept even fewer on the road. Both teams have scored in 70% of West Brom’s home games so far this season, as well as in 60% of Derby’s away trips, so you can see why we’re expecting goals at both ends of the pitch.

Both teams have also scored in each of the last six meetings between these two clubs in league and cup, as well as in three of Derby’s last four outings. As for a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 2-1 win for the Baggies who have won nine of their 20 home games this season. Derby have already lost ten of their 20 away games, only winning five times on their travels, and we’re expecting another tough 90-minutes for the visitors this Wednesday.

The hosts have the goals in them to outscore Derby on Wednesday

West Brom score an average of 2.00 goals per home game and concede 1.25 goals while Derby score an average of 1.25 goals per away game and concede 1.90 goals, which ties in neatly with our prediction for a 2-1 home win on Wednesday. Games between these two clubs have produced plenty of goals in recent season, with 0ver 2.5 goals being scored in five of the last six meetings between these two clubs. West Brom might not have form in their favour but the hosts have scored 71 goals in the Championship this season, while Derby have only netted 56 times.
