WBA will be looking to build some more momentum in the Premiership this Saturday when they host Sunderland at the Hawthorns. A win in this fixture could potentially propel WBA into the top half of the league – a good result after a shaky start to the season.
WBA and Sunderland have split the results from their last five matches down the middle, with WBA taking four wins and Sunderland taking four wins, while two matches, including their most recent encounter, ended in draws. Sunderland have achieved two wins at the Hawthorns during this period.
Sunderland’s most recent visit to WBA, in the 2010-11 season, saw the Baggies win 1-0.
WBA come into this fixture on the back of a handsome 5-1 over the Wolves in the last round of Premiership fixtures. That win is one of two they have achieved in the last five games, along with two defeats and an away draw.
WBA’s attack have done all that has been asked of them, scoring 10 goals in their last five matches. The club’s defence has cost it some wins, with 7 goals conceded during the same period.
Sunderland, meanwhile, are on a strong run of form with four wins and a single defeat from five games, including their 2-0 victory over Arsenal at the Stadium of Light last weekend.
Sunderland have put away 9 goals in their last five matches. Strong performances up front have been matched at the back, with just 3 goals conceded during the same period.
Sunderland has the firepower to win this match, and it’ll be up to the WBA defence to up their game if they want to give their strikers room to secure the win.
With Sunderland scoring two away wins in recent weeks, we’re going with the visitors to win this match, as you can get decent value on the back bet in the match betting markets.
