The closing of the day of the Championship of England will star in two teams that are caught in the fight for promotion.
Preston is being one of the surprises. For payroll, I shouldn’t be fighting so high, and yet there it is.
West Bromwich Albion is a favorite to ascend as the winner of the Championship, and for the moment it is a victory to regain the leadership of the Championship, which occupies the Leeds of Marcelo Bielsa (with one more game).
Slaven Bili? He has taken West Brom on a fast start in the first 18 days. As a local, he has been dominant, winning 71% of the points in dispute. But as a visitor it is even better, winning 75% of them.
Already difference is in the talent.
He has a good defense, but the attack is exceptional, to the point that the team does not need to decompose to reach the rival area, because the top 4 fix them alone.
And it is that the sale of Solomon Rondón to China allowed them to tie very high quality players (the Phillips and Matheus Pereira ends would be holders in 14 of the 20 Premier League teams, for example).
Precisely, the Brazilian has been the best player of the Championship in the season.
Beyond the spectacular start of Preston, and being local, West Brom has been insolent against all the teams that have faced him.
It comes from 4 straight wins and 8 undefeated games.
For his part, Preston felt a little pressure. After 3 straight wins, he lost to Derby County (1-0) and Hull City thrashed him (4-0) on the last date.
It will be a great game because they arrive in good shape, but West Brom should bring out all its superiority.
