Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
WBA and Harrogate face each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at the Hawthorns. The Baggies experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Leicester, meaning that they are eager to get back on course. Slaven Bilic’s men aim to regain a much-needed confidence, and we predict that they are going to take Wednesday’s EFL Cup clash very seriously.
The League Two side did well to crush Southend in the opening match of the season, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against WBA. The Baggies are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and even though there will be no spectators at the Hawthorns, we are tempted to put our money on the Premier League club. Zohore is sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Townsend is rated doubtful for the Carabao Cup opener.
