Wolves vs Tottenham
England – League Cup
Date: Wednesday, 22 September 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium.
The Spurs started their new season on a great note, and raced to a three-game winning streak in the league. They once again looked like genuine contenders for a podium finish.
However, they failed to keep the momentum going, and are currently trying to get out of their slump.
Meanwhile, it’s been quite some time since the Wolves looked like a top-tier team. Two years back they used to be one of the most feared opponents – especially due to their reputation of knocking points off some of the big guns in the PL.
However, lately they have been on long inconsistent streaks, and are struggling with their defense as well. On top of that, they also have a rather poor h2h record against this foe.
As such, expect Tottenham to have the upper hand this Wednesday at the Molineux.
Be that as it may, they are on the road, and their defense has been shaky in the past few match-days. In fact, they are the only team with a negative goal-difference in the top half of the PL table as of now.
Furthermore, goals have also come in plenty in h2h meetings over the years.
As such, while the Spurs are expected to be the better team on the pitch, goals are expected to come from either team.
Wolves vs Tottenham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Eight of the past eleven encounters had goals from both teams.
- Six of the preceding eleven meetings had three or more goals.
- Tottenham are on a two-match winning run, and a three-fixture unbeaten streak.
- They had also recorded nine of the former thirteen overall wins.
Wolves vs Tottenham Prediction
The Spurs were unbeaten in 11 of their preceding 14 fixtures, and of the three total defeats during this stretch – one had come against Chelsea, and one had come in the Conference League.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost five of their past seven match-ups, and they had remained winless in 11 of their preceding 15 games. They are also on a four-fixture losing run at home.
Going on, Tottenham also have the better h2h record over the years. Combining all these factors, expect them to secure a hard-fought win this Wednesday.
Be that as it may, the Spurs have conceded two or more goals in their last three straight fixtures, and they have a total of two clean sheets on the road in the past 13 attempts.
Likely, expect goals to come from both teams this game week at the Molineux
