WBA was close in taking all three in the last match against Aston Villa, but unfortunately for them, took only a point in a 2:2 away draw.
They conceded early in the 9th after the penalty but responded from the same situation over Pereira just fourteen minutes later. The guests took the lead later on in the 47th when the home side scored an own goal, but couldn’t withstand the pressure, as Aston Villa pretty much went all-in, and conceded an equalizer just before the full-time whistle, more than deservedly overall.
WBA is at relegation leading 19th spot, still with a theoretical chance for survival, but they will have to perform almost perfectly in matches to come.
Central-back Ivanovic (13/0) is injured, while doubtful remains midfielder Snodgrass (8/0) for the moment.
Wolves are coming to this clash after a pretty convincing defeat in the last round when they were completely outplayed at home by Burnley, losing the match with a 0:4 result.
The hosts simply had no solutions for Wood, who managed to beat their goalkeeper three times during the first part, while being completely demoralized, the home side conceded another one in the late phase of the match, not being in a position to score at least a comforting one.
Wolves holds the 12th spot in the general rankings, and it is safe to say that this season is more or less over for them.
They will miss injured forward Jimenez (10/4), plus offensive midfielder Neto (31/5), and defensive Jonny (7/0). Midfielder Moutinho (29/1) and left-back Marcal (12/0) are doubtful.

Goals are looking realistic here
As mentioned WBA still has a chance to survive in the Premier League, but honestly, that scenario is highly unlikely. Nevertheless, I am positive that they will put their maximum engagement in taking all three, but that means opening and risk.
On the contrary, Wolves has the luxury to approach this one more relaxed, and even though the outcome of this one is difficult to predict, I am certain that there will be no clean sheets.
