Sheffield United vs Wolves
English Premier League
Monday, 14 September 2020
Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).
Sheffield United get their 2020-21 Premier League campaign underway on Tuesday moring with a clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Having both missed out on European qualification, Chris Wilder and Nuno Espirito Santo will be eager to get their season off to a positive start.
Their latest meeting at Bramall Lane was on 8th July and the drab match was settled by a very late goal by John Egan from the corner flag.
Meantime, the teams settled for a 1-1 draw in the reverse leg played at the Molineux Stadium.
Anyhow, Wolves have a better record in recent years as they bagged 4 wins from 8 matches across all competitions, drew and lost 2 each.
However, only 2 wins came in their last 6 visits to the Bramall Lane with Sheffield winning the other 4.
Sheffield United vs Wolves Prediction
Considering Wolves boasted the league’s third best defensive record on the road and were joined on the scoresheet in only one of their final 11 fixtures last season, odds of 4/5 (1.80) look solid on no more than one team getting on target in a match featuring under 2.5 goals.
