These two met in the FA cup semi-final which will be remembered for a stunning comeback from Watford after being 2-0 down. Know they're battling out for 7th place and the chance to possibly get to the Europa League group stages. If indeed that 7th place goes one of these two then they have strong enough squads to compete on both fronts.
Wolves were deserved winners at home to Arsenal midweek and that increased their strong record against the top 6. They're now currently one point ahead of Watford so it will be interesting to see if the Hornets go for it.
Gerard Deulofeu has been in fine form and the old gold will have to be wary of his threat. Ettiene Capoue has been excellent at the base of midfield and given license for Abdoulaye Doucoure to venture forward and use his ability on the ball.
Matt Doherty once again got on the scoresheet for Wolves and the formation Nuno adopts allows full backs Doherty and Jonny to be an integral part of attacks and he's thrived in that role.
These two have very similar records in the league with both winning 14 times this term. It's sure to be tight just like it was in the cup and it's hard to pick a winner.
Watford remain without the suspended Troy Deeney. Alberto Penaranda, Domingos Quina and Tom Cleverly are definitely out whereas Seb Prodl and Joes Holebas are doubtful.
Wolves have no new injury concerns.
Potential Watford Starting XI: Foster, Janmaat, Mariappa, Cathcart, Masina, Capoue, Doucoure, Hughes, Perayra, Deulofeu, Gray.
Potential Wolves Starting XI: Patricio, Doherty, Coady, Boly, Bennett, Jonny, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jota, Jimenez.
Key Stats & Facts
- BTTS has landed in 5 of Watford's last 6.
- Wolves have seen BTTS land in 4 of their last 5.
- This game ended 2-2 in the cup.
- Watford – 13/8
- Draw – 23/10
- Wolves – 2/1
It's very hard to get with either side here, the draw looks probably the most interesting at the biggest price of the three.
Instead I'll happily go for both teams to score at 10/11. The stats back this up over recent times at least. If one side scores then the opposition will go for it given the league dynamics and it could be an end to end fixture.
