Europe on the line

Sheffield United welcome Wolverhampton to Bramall Lane during the Prems midweek fixture list that see's two European hopefuls lock horns. Given how close things are in the table, dropping any amount of points could be detrimental towards securing qualification for next years European tournaments.

Sheffield United

The Blades returned to life after lockdown in catastrophic fashion losing 2 and drawing 1 of their first 3 games but managed to get back on course in spectacular fashion with a resolute 3-1 win at home to Tottenham. They then followed that up with a rather drab, overly defensive 1-1 display away at Burnley which is not optimal but also not horrible.

A lot on the line

Chris Wilder's men lag 7 points behind Manchester United and the last Champions League spot with 15 points left to play for meaning that their Champions League dream is all but over. The Europa League is however definitely not out of the equation given that this years 6th place will qualify due to Manchester City's ban and if Watford lose the F.A. Cup final even 7th place will qualify for the EL.

Sheffield are only 2 points behind Arsenal who sit at 7th with a game in hand meaning they have everything in their own hands IF they win on Wednesday. What makes this fixture all the more spicy is that Wolverhampton can be found at 6th, 4 points above Sheffield, talk about an important game.


Nuno's men fell to their first defeat in 8 outings after deservedly losing 0-2 at home to a revitalised Arsenal side this past Saturday. The defeat is highly problematic due to the simple fact that Wolverhamptons main rivals are simply not losing. Manchester United are now 3 points clear and are probably the team least likely to lose at the moment whilst Arsenal are only 2 points behind courtesy of a great run of form as well.

Also a lot on the line

Wolves are at risk of not only losing out on a Champions League spot but also a Europa League spot depending on how Arsenal and Tottenham perform but the bottomline is that Wolverhampton cannot, under nearly any circumstances, afford another defeat.

Fantastic stats

An aspect that will have Wolverhampton feeling very confident is the fact that out of their 7 defeats, only 2 have come against teams below them (Everton and Watford) meaning Wolves should be full of confidence despite their recent set back.

Betting tip

Given both teams defensive tendencies and the fact that a lot is on the line here i will be backing Wolverhampton Draw or Win and Under 2.5 goals at 1.83 with Betway.
