Wolverhampton Wanderers hosts Birmingham City at “Molineux Stadium” in a game from Championship.
Both teams have been playing at a lower level than we are accustomed to seeing them. Wolverhampton lost their last 4 games, including a cup tie against Chelsea during the past weekend. Before that slump, they were on the rise and they even beat Liverpool at Anfield to top that. They were on a 12-game streak where they lost only 3 games and made a big step towards avoiding relegation but after the last few games, Wolverhampton are just 5 points above the relegation zone and the game against Birmingham will be very important.
Birmingham won only 1 of their last 14 games in all competitions and their status in the Championship is doubtful. They have scored only 10 goals in these matches, relying on Lukas Jutkiewicz up front to do the job. QPR showed the Wolves last week where the vulnerabilities in the Birmingham’s defense are and the home side will try to exploit them on Friday. The last 6 times these two teams played, Wolverhampton won 3 of those games, 2 finished as draws and 1 as a win for Birmingham.
