Watford v Wolverhampton Wanderers - Football Live Match Preview

Watford v Wolverhampton

Wolves will be looking for FA Cup redemption when they take on Watford at Vicarage Road.

PaddyPower Pre-Match Odds: Watford 6/4, Draw 11/5, Wolves 15/8

Nuno Santo’s men were denied a final with Manchester City after losing to Watford in extra time of their semi-final at Wembley.

Both teams are also fighting for seventh place which means there will be an additional incentive when the two clubs collide this Saturday.

Watford have endured some mixed results since that famous FA Cup win. A slender 1-0 loss to Arsenal was quickly followed by a slender win over Huddersfield and then a 1-1 draw with Southampton.

Wolves have had a similar run. They followed that FA Cup encounter with a 3-1 defeat to Southampton, a 0-0 draw with Brighton and most recently, a huge 3-1 victory over Arsenal.

Picking a winner in this one is not easy which is why the recommendation is to back the draw. Two of their last four head to heads have ended this way and at the price of 23/10, there is certainly a lot of promise.
