West Bromwich take on the visitors Burnley in the round 8 match of English Championship. The match will be played on Friday, September 2nd at The Hawthorns (West Bromwich).
West Brom is not impressive yetю. The "Baggies" were considered "football elevator". Not the most prestigious status, but at the same time, within the framework of the Championship, such projects are considered as flagships. And last season, of course, they were waiting for another promotion to the Premier League - and in the end, even having turned the coaching castling and appointing Steve Bruce, it turned out to finish only at the bottom of the top ten of the final table. Of course, there were plans to add now. But in the starting segment, only Hull was defeated (and the team has already taken off from the League Cup, losing to Derby County there). With Wigan in the last round, they also limited themselves to a draw - they played 1-1 on the road.

Burnley are trying to save the chances of an immediate return to the Premier League. The Clarets have been playing non-stop in the Premier League for a long time. And they were Sean Dyche's team. But last season it was impossible to break out of the danger zone. Even an attempt to correct the situation in the form of replacing of the manager did not give anything - the fall to the Championship took place. Now we need to return and this task was assigned to Vincent Kompany, who received coaching experience, albeit not the most convincing one, in Anderlecht. But we must remember that the Belgian is constantly losing leading players, from Pope to Cornet. So quickly such losses can’t be compensated, hence not the best start. After the victory in the 1st round, over Huddersfield, it was not possible to win four times in a row (3 draws and a loss to Watford). And only on the 27th of August was Wigan defeated 5-1. Developing successes, it turned out to make confident 2-0 at home with Millwall.
In the 2020/2021 season, when both clubs played in the Premier League, both matches were drawn. Moreover, both on the West Bromwich field and on the Burnley arena, everything ended 0-0. West Bromwich plays at home and seems to be seen as the pair's favourite. But Burnley is back in form and should not lose at the Blackbirds on Friday.
Prediction for the match: Burnley to win with +0.5 handicap (X2).
