Swansea City vs West Bromwich Albion Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

Swansea are five points off the playoffs going into the midweek games, and they host West Brom, who are currently in them and come here on the back of two good wins.

Both of these teams came down from the Premier League last season, although they both had different plans going into this season. Swansea seemed happy to take things slowly and build ahead of a promotion push, while West Brom wanted an immediate return and spent money trying to do that.

Swansea are currently in 10th position, though they are improving and come here having won three of their last five games. Their game against Norwich resulted in defeat at the weekend though, they were on the wrong side of a 4-1 score line in that game and will be looking to put that behind them here.

West Brom went to Ipswich and won 2-1 to keep them heading in the right direction. They have now won two in a row and look as though they are going to be a big threat at the top during the second half of the season.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

While these two are both ex-Premier League clubs, there is a lot more to like about West Brom and how they are currently playing. Their 4-1 defeat of Leeds a couple of weeks ago was fantastic, and they followed that up with a win at Ipswich. They look capable of making it three wins on the bounce here in this one.

While West Brom are picking up wins, they are also conceding goals and in four of their last five games, both teams have scored a goal. That has also happened in three of the last five Swansea games, which makes both teams to score an interesting bet here.

Swansea City Preview

Swansea have been in decent form recently, and although they were comfortably beaten 4-1 at the weekend, that was against high-flying Norwich who are playing some fantastic football right now. Wins over Blackburn, Reading and Bolton have helped them steady the ship, and while they are just five points off the playoffs, that may be a step too far for them this season.

The plan all along has been to consolidate and build for a tilt at the Premier League in years to come, Swansea are laying the foundations for that this season.

 

West Bromwich Albion Preview

West Brom are in prime position to challenge for the league title over the coming months, and they look to be one of the strongest teams in the division right now. They have won their last two games and now sit just five points off the lead and three points off an automatic promotion spot.

There are many big clubs in amongst the battle for promotion, and West Brom are one of those. There are few teams with the same quality and depth that The Baggies have, and a promotion push appears very likely for them.
