Our prediction for this Championship match:
West Bromwich Albion will be looking to cement their spot in top two when they restart the season with a game against Birmingham City. The Baggies dropped to the second position in the standings following a poor run of results before the coronavirus football break, but they are still seen as one of the main candidates to secure automatic promotion.
Over the years WBA have turned the Hawthorns into a real fortress, but there will be no spectators at their home ground this time out. Birmingham City, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Reading on Matchday 37, and it is no surprise bookmakers see them as underdogs in Saturday’s clash. Seeing that WBA key defender Ahmed Hegazi has overcome his injury, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
