Birmingham vs West Brom Stats Pack, Bet Builder Tips and Predictions

Birmingham City vs West Bromwich Albion Stats Pack, Bet Builder Tips and Predictions Featured Image

It’s derby day at St Andrews this weekend as Birmingham City host West Bromwich Albion with only one point but seven places separating the sides in the league table. John Eustace has found himself under pressure recently but he and his team came out fighting by hammering Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night, with the returning Siriki Dembele playing an important role. It was their first victory in six games.  

West Brom’s season started with back-to-back defeats in league and cup but they have responded brilliantly, losing just one of their last nine and coming into this match having kept four clean sheets in five league games.  

This is a friendly rivalry but one that doesn’t lack blood and thunder and a sell-out crowd will hope the players can produce, despite this being their third game in six days. We’ve done the maths to create what we believe will be a winning Birmingham vs West Brom bet builder and all the data to help you form your own is below.

Birmingham vs West Brom PREDICTED LINEUPS 

Blues to be unchanged 

John Eustace needed a response from his players in midweek and he found it, the returns of Siriki Dembele and Juninho Bacuna to the starting XI led to a fantastic performance and result. Ethan Laird and Lee Buchanan remain out meaning Cody Drameh and Emmanuel Longelo will keep their places in the XI. Scott Hogan and Oli Burke are out of form and unlikely to command a starting spot.

WBA also unlikely to change 

When you roll into the third matchday of a week, it’s understandable that you might feel the need to rest players. However, West Brom have won their previous two and the only change made was to restore Brandon Thomas-Asante into the XI in place of Grady Diangana. That is likely to be the only tussle for a starting spot given the injury records of both. Jed Wallace should keep his place up front while Kyle Bartley is enjoying a renaissance at the back.

Birmingham VS West Brom TEAM STATS 

Eustace’s side are performing well 

One of the frustrations John Eustace has had recently is that his team have performed well – his side would be in the top six based on expected points, they have managed over 1 xG in eight of their ten games and 12+ shots in seven of their last eight. They have also conceded 13+ shots in just three games, and one of those was against Huddersfield who only started looking dangerous when 3-0 down. Blues have conceded five or more corners in seven of their ten league matches and have also committed 12+ fouls in seven games too.

Baggies have turned a corner defensively 

West Brom had conceded 12 or more shots on their goal in the first seven games but their last three have seen them improve significantly – they have conceded a combined 15 shots in their last three games. Corners could be an avenue to look at – they have had four or more corner kicks in eight of their league matches. They aren’t a side that annoy the referee – with fewer than two yellow cards in five of their last six and ten or fewer fouls committed in their last nine – but they do draw plenty of fouls, seeing their opponents receive two or more yellow cards in seven of ten matches.

Birmingham VS West Brom SHOTS AND SHOTS ON TARGET stats

Wildcard Bacuna providing fun 

Juninho Bacuna has played all over the shop this year, occasionally in his preferred central midfield role as well as covering at right back. However, he is now playing on the right wing and he will start there for the fifth time this season on Friday. In that role, he has taken at least two shots in each game and had a shot on target in all four as well – he’s 1.4 to have two shots and 1.91 to have a shot on target. Notably, Koji Miyoshi is also 1.4 to have two or more shots – he has done so in four of five matches.  

10 5 2023 BIRMINGHAM CITY betbuilder stats pack SHOOTING

Phillips a very good price to strike 

Matt Phillips may be playing left wing back currently but he is having a big effect on the Baggies’ attack, managing two or more shots in four of his last five games (2.1 to repeat the feat) and a shot on target in each of his last three (2.8). Meanwhile, Brandon Thomas-Asante returned to the XI in midweek – he is 1.36 to have two or more shots and his last five matches have seen him take two, three, three, four and four shots.

Birmingham VS West brom GOALS AND ASSISTS  stats

Miyoshi having a big impact 

Japanese international Koji Miyoshi may be diminutive in stature but he’s having a big impact on the Blues side, his goal and assist against Huddersfield Town mean he has now contributed to more goals than any other player in the Blues ranks. Siriki Dembele is another player having a big impact in his games and his two goals in midweek came in a wonderful solo performance. He’s 4.33 to repeat the feat at the weekend.

John Swift-ly making himself a key man for Corberan 

John Swift didn’t have the best first year at West Brom but Carlos Corberan is getting something more from the ex-Chelsea youngster. He has now scored five and assisted one, contributing to a goal in six of his last eight starts – he’s 5.0 to score a goal anytime. Jed Wallace is the man leading the line, he set up Swift’s goal in midweek and he has now assisted three goals.

Blues attack feisty 

Blues’ process follows a similar pattern each week – they sit off, and then the front six go together as a unit. It’s sharp, aggressive and they aren’t afraid to commit fouls in order to stop the opposition from playing. Bacuna is a big part of that – he has four yellow cards and has committed a foul in every game since his seven-minute cameo on opening day. Ivan Sunjic and Jay Stansfield have three yellow cards apiece, the former committing two or more fouls in seven of his nine games while Stansfield has committed two or more in four of his five starts.

Mowatt to be the target

Alex Mowatt is probably going to receive a kick or two, we feel. He’s seeing most of the ball for West Brom and has been fouled nine times in his four starts, being fouled two or more times – Bacuna and Sunjic will be chalking their studs. Elsewhere, Thomas-Asante has been fouled nearly two times per 90, being fouled in seven of his eight appearances and twice or more in three of his last five games.

West Brom CARDS AND FOULS stats

Baggies as clean as they come 

West Brom sit fourth-bottom for most cards received and bottom of the league for fouls conceded. Still, you need some bite and Yokuslu has responded Okay to that. The Turkish midfielder has committed a foul in six of his last seven appearances. Elsewhere, the wing backs are enduring the occasional issue – Darnell Furlong committed a foul in his first seven games while Matt Phillips committed a foul in seven of his first eight – neither have committed a foul in their last two but their opposition has been abysmal, therefore they are still ones to look out for in a more closely contested game.

10 5 2023 WEST BROMWICH ALBION betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR

bacuna to challenge behaving baggies

Phillips and Furlong might find some problems given they will be up against Juninho Bacuna and Siriki Dembele in duels. Dembele has been fouled just shy of 3.5 times per 90 minutes and has been fouled 12 times in four starts as a right winger. Bacuna, meanwhile, has been fouled in three of his four starts as a right winger and in six of seven starts, two or more times in five of those.
