Swansea – West Bromwich: 21th May 2017
Premier League, 38th round. Swansea (17th place, goal 43-69) meets a high-loss team, WBA (9th place, goal 42-49). The Wels have just got their salvation from relegation, and the WBA is sure of its place or midfield, so we can see an open game with many goals.
Swansea defeated Sunderland last season and Paul Clement’s team is rescued, so now is the party with the fans. Swansea is unbeaten by 4 stages (3 wins and a draw), while WBA has lost 6 of its last 7 matches in the championship. Moreover, West Brom received two goals in 5 of the last 6 away games, and Swansea will try to take advantage of the rival lethargy.
The home team usually has the advantage
The tour was 3-1 for the WBA on the ground, but the statistics of the direct matches is fairly balanced. It only happened one time that the visiting team had to play in this duel in the last 8 games, which says a lot about Swansea’s own land advantage.
They will not miss the best attackers in the two camps and, given the ease with which the two players receive goals, we may see a duel on their backs
