Wolverhampton Wanderers take on the visitors Watford at the Molineux Stadium in the 9th tour of the Premier League. The match will be played in Wolverhampton on Saturday, October 20th.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are new to the Premier League this season. Even though they have a small budget the Wolves have been the breakthrough team in the league so far. They are on the seventh place in the table at the moment. However, the team of Nuno Espirito Santo has been scoring only a few goals a match recently. Thereby it is hard to consider them the favourite in the lead-up to the upcoming fixture even with the home crowd advantage for them on Saturday. It`s worth noting that the Wanderers have already conceded goals in their games against Everton (two goals in front of their home crowd), against Leicester City (three goals overall, two in the league and one in the Carabao Cup), against Manchester United and Manchester City too this season. Even though the Wolves conceded zero goals in their last two league fixtures they are unlikely to keep their goal safe on Saturday. Quite frankly, they are not as strong in the defense as Atletico Madrid for example yet. The team of Nuno Espitito Santo has rarely spent a lot of time in the defense in their previous Premier League games. In their last three matches Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Crystal Palace with a 1-0 score, Southampton with a 2-0 score and lost to Leicester City in a penalty shootout in the 1/16-finals fixture of the Carabao Cup.

Watford looked very solid in the start of the new Premier League season, they were able to beat such strong team as Tottenham Hotspur with a 2-1 score for example. Also, the Hornets have already scored goals against Fulham, Crystal Palace, Manchester United, Burnley (three goals) and Brighton & Hove Albion (two goals) this season. That has been a tremendous result for the team of Javi Gracia. In their last three matches though Watford lost to Bournemouth with a 0-4 score, to Arsenal with a 0-2 score and to Tottenham Hotspur in a penalty shootout in the 1/16-finals fixture of the Carabao Cup.
The offensive line of Watford has been looking great this Premier League season. Thereby we should expect the Hornets to score at least one goal in their upcoming fixture against the Wanderers.
Prediction for the match: Watford to score over 0.5 goals.
