Tammy Abraham 6/5 to score anytime against West Brom in Tuesday’s playoff semi-final

Competition: Championship

Market: Tammy Abraham to score anytime

Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365

Looking to book a trip to Wembley at the end of the month, Aston Villa will travel across the Midlands to West Brom on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, after shipping two second-half goals and suffering a 2-1 loss in their trip to Villa Park over the weekend, caretaker boss James Shan will be calling for an immediate response from his West Brom side in midweek. Now suffering back-to-back defeats against Villa and a 3-1 defeat away at Derby on their final matchup of the season, fans around the Hawthorns will be growing more concerned by the Baggies’ defensive struggles. Tuesday’s hosts have recorded just one clean sheet in their last nine matches, a run that stems back to the middle of March.

As for the visitors, coming from behind to pick up an early advantage and Midlands bragging rights over the weekend, the mood in Aston Villa’s camp will be at a season-high. Looking to secure back-to-back seasons in the Playoff final, former Brentford boss Dean Smith has now seen his side win 11 of their last 13 matches, including enjoying a seven-match unbeaten run away from Villa Park. One man who has continued to spearhead Villa’s Premier League return is leading goalscorer and Chelsea loanee, Tammy Abraham. Finding the net against West Brom in the first-leg, the England U21 international has three in his last three and sits second in the overall goalscoring charts.
