Sheffield United v Wolves head-to-head.
Wolves have lost just one of their last eight league games against the Blades. Nuno Espirito Santos’ side have won on two of their last three trips to Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United v Wolves current form.
Sheffield United are aiming to win a third consecutive Premier League home game for the first time since 1993. The Blades have better home defensive record than all Premier League sides other than Liverpool and Manchester City this season and have lost just two of their last 12 league games at Bramall Lane.
But Wolves are also in-form on the road. Tonight’s visitors are going for a fourth consecutive top-flight away win, which would represent their best run since 1980. They’re also hoping to break a cub record by keeping a third consecutive top-flight clean sheet away from Molineux.
Sheffield United v Wolves match prediction.
With Wolves hoping to remain in the mix for UEFA Champions League qualification, this evening’s game is essentially a must win. Sheffield United’s season is threatening to fizzle out, with the club recording just one win since the restart. Wolves’ added motivation and psychological edge given their better head to head record should be enough to force a narrow 0-1 win.
Best bet for Sheffield United v Wolves.
For all of Wolves’ plaudits this season, they’d be bottom of the table if matches ended after 45 minutes. X/2 in the half time/full time market (draw at half time, Wolves win at full time) is the bet for tonight.
