Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Molineux Stadium will host Thursday’s Premier League game between Wolverhampton and Watford. The Wolves are on a three-game losing run in the national championship, but they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Nelson Semedo remains in the recovery room, but the former Barcelona man should be the only absentee in the home side.
The Hornets, on the other hand, aim to escape the relegation zone. Watford experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to Arsenal, and they are unlikely to spoil Wolverhampton’s party at Molineux Stadium. To make things even worse for the visiting side, winger Ismaila Sarr is sidelined with a hamstring injury. In their last meeting at the venue Wolverhampton defeated Watford 2-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Raul Jimenez):
Argentine forward Raul Jimenez began his career within the youth ranks of Club America, a club he went on to play 102 matches in all competitions and score 39 goals for before his 2014 move to Atletico Madrid.

Portuguese giants initially acquired 50% of the player’s economic rights, while the remaining share of Jimenez’s contract was purchased in the summer of 2016 for a fee believed to be around €12 million. During his maiden season with the Eagles Mexico international played 28 Primeira Liga games, contributing with five goals during the process.
