Competition: England - Championship
Date: Monday, 08th, August 2022
Kickoff: 20:00 UK/21.00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich)

The audience should enjoy the clash on Monday, where the second round of the new season will close the duel between West Bromwich Albion and Watford, and both teams will aim to continue on a positive note. Albion faced a big task on the first day of the season, but The Baggies managed to take a point, in a 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough, so they will want to prove themselves in the first home game. Meanwhile, Watford are back in the second tier after just one year, but The Hornets will do anything to return to the top flight of English football, so it's no wonder they are one of the promotion contenders. Namely, Rob Edwards' team started the new campaign in the best possible way, thanks to João Pedro, who brought all three points to his team against Sheffield United with a narrow 1-0.

West Bromwich Albion vs Watford Betting Tips: BTTS

The last meeting between these teams at The Hawthorns was very interesting, and both teams had to settle for a point, in an exciting 2-2 draw, so we believe we will see a replay of that duel on Monday. West Bromwich Albion proved to be a tough nut to crack last term, finishing the campaign as one of the best domestic teams in the Championship,, so hopefully The Baggies will adopt an attacking approach. Watford faced major problems in the back line last term, conceding as many as 77 goals (an average of 2 goals per match) and this was the main reason for their relegation from the Premier League. It should be noted that BTTS was seen in five of the last seven meetings between these teams at The Hawthorns, so we expect both teams to provide great attacking potential and find the net at least once.

Watford Team News

After relegation from the Premier League, Watford left a lot of players, so the team earned 20 million euros and will try to bring in more new players by the end of the transfer window.

Watford's most high-profile signing of the summer is Wakoun Issouf Bayo, who arrived from RSC Charleroi for €5.80m, while Mario Gaspar, Rey Manaj and Ben Hamer arrived as free agents.

Coach Rob Edwards is pleased with his team's performance on the opening day of the season and he is likely to name the same IX.
