Wolves vs Derby Prediction & Betting tips
The Wolverhampton Wanderers are about to return to the Premier League! Last weekend, the Wolves set a milestone in a memorable game on the way back to the Beletage of English football. Now Wolverhampton wants to make (almost) the famous bag in the home game on Wednesday. Depending on the outcome of the match between Fulham and Reading on Tuesday, the Wolves can start immediately with a threesome against Derby with the ascent ceremony. After Wednesday’s crazy victory, Wednesday’s winner can only be called Wolverhampton. Is a tip worth it for the host?
That’s exactly how you rise! In the top match of second-placed Cardiff City, who had previously undefeated thirteen games in the championship – ten wins, three draws – and the last seven home games in the league all won, Wolverhampton led 1-0 in injury time until the third minute! But then referee Mike Dean pointed to the point – penalty for Cardiff! Wolverhampton keeper John Ruddy won the nerve fight and held Gary Madine’s penalty. But that’s not all. In the fifth minute of stoppage time, there was again a penalty for Cardiff! But even this could not transform the Welsh, who slammed the ball in the form of Junior Hoilett to the aluminum. Two unused penalty posts in injury time earned Wolverhampton three points and the Wolves are now leading the table nine points clear of Cardiff.
Even if the Welsh are still catching up in the hindquarters: From Wolverhampton’s point of view, the lead of eleven points on Fulham in third place, which no longer means direct promotion, but only enough for the playoffs. Wins Fulham on Tuesday, the home game against Reading (currently ninth place) not, then Wolverhampton is determined with a threesome against Derby County as promoted. At home Wolverhampton comes in the Championship on a record of fourteen wins, four draws and only two defeats. For six home games, the Wolves are unbeaten and could win four of them. With 74 goals scored, Wolverhampton represents the best offense of all 24 teams in the championship. With 43 hits, the Wolves scored well over half of their goals at home. With 36 goals, Wolverhampton also provides the second best defense. Fewer goals conceded, namely 34, only Cardiff suffered, but as mentioned also had a game less.
Also, Derby County is currently a potential candidate for the Premier League in the coming season, however, the Rams will have to go the hard way over the playoffs. But even those are not yet in a dry towel. Derby is currently fifth. The advantage over Millwall in seventh place, which no longer qualifies for the playoffs, is only three points. The positive from the point of view of Derby County: The club still has a catch-up game in the hindquarters. In fact, Derby County could have played for the two direct promotion spots if it had not been for the low yield between mid-February and the end of March. During this period, Derby County could win none of eight games in the championship. There were five draws and three defeats, only five out of a possible 24 points. Low point was the 1: 4 Heimklatsche on 30.03.2018 against the hitherto bottom bracket Sunderland. Three days later, however, Derby County was to make the turnaround and win in the away game at Preston North End 1-0, the ram benefited from a missed penalty from the opponent.
What made such a win was revealed just five days later, when Derby County defeated Bolton Wanderers 3-0 at home to win the second consecutive match. Now Derby also hopes for something countable in the front runner. Away from home, Derby County remains the third best team in the championship with eight wins, nine draws and only three defeats. Derby County have lost none of their last four away games, but have only won one after three draws in a row. And yet: Of the last sixteen away games in the Championship, Derby County has lost only one! Derby also lost the first leg at home to Wolverhampton. In domestic Pride Park Derby defeated on the second matchday 0-2.
