Sheffield Wednesday v Wolves Past Meetings

This will be the 73rd meeting between these two sides, with Wolves superior in the head-to-head record with 32 wins compared to Wednesday’s 18.

The last time the two sides met saw the two sides cancel each other out in a scoreless draw at Hillsborough at the start of the calendar year.

The meeting between the two at Molineux last season ended in a two-goal away victory for Carlos Carvahal’s side thanks to Fernando Forestieri and Kieran Lee.

The Owls have won only two of their past 14 meetings against the Midlands side, losing eight of those fixtures.


Sheffield Wednesday v Wolves Stats

Wolves have scored more goals (41) than any other Championship side this season, although they couldn’t score against Sunderland on Saturday.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have the second strongest defensive record in the division (17 goals conceded), behind only Cardiff City.

The draw against Sunderland ended a run of six consecutive wins for Wolves, who have won nine of their last 11 Championship matches.

For Wednesday, their defeat to Norwich on Saturday ended a run of seven matches unbeaten, however they are now without a win in five outings.

Carvahal’s side have lost only one of their ten league matches at Hillsborough, with 17 points in those games.


Sheffield Wednesday v Wolves Team News

Neither side has any fresh injury or suspension worries.

The hosts are likely to continue to deploy their 4-4-2 formation with Jordan Rhodes – who netted against Norwich – and Gary Hooper leading the line.

Wolves are likely to stick with the 3-4-3 formation with Matt Doherty and Barry Douglas operating as wing-backs. Alfred N’Diaye and Helder Costa will both be hopeful of forcing their way into the starting line-up.


Reason for Sheffield Wednesday v Wolves Bets

Wolves will be big favourites going into this game due to leading the standings with an impressive brand of football, while Wednesday are without a win in five.

However, last week’s defeat at Norwich was their first loss in eight and they’ve only lost one home match so far this campaign, and coupled with Wolves’s frustration against Sunderland on Saturday, a draw is the safe option for match outcome.

Only Sheffield United’s Leon Clarke has scored more Championship goals this season than Wanderers striker Leo Bonatini – 12 in 19 starts – and he is in form with eight goals in his last 10 outings in the division.

Having conceded two goals or more in three of their last four games and with Wolves the division’s top scorers, away goals are likely in what looks set to be an intriguing encounter.
