Last Updated

West Brom host Aston Villa on Tuesday night with a place at Wembley in the Championship play-off final on the line.

The Villans won the first leg 2-1 after going a goal down and are 6/4 (2.50) to claim victory at their West Midlands rivals, with the Baggies slight underdogs at 9/5 (2.80) with William Hill.

A tense match could be in store as West Brom chase the game and William Hill are running their Golden Goal promotion for the tie at the Hawthorns. T&Cs apply .

Back a team to win in 90 Minutes and if they score the first goal, the firm will pay your bet out as a winner, up to £50 winnings in cash, if they draw or lose the match.

Applies to bet struck on the “90 Minutes” market only and the qualifying bet must be placed pre-match. Only your first qualifying bet on the Golden Goal match will count towards this offer.

The first leg is a prime example of this promotion paying dividends, where backers of West Brom would have been paid out at 7/2 (4.50) after Dwight Gayle opened the scoring for the visitors.

Villa then went on to claim a vital 2-1 victory in front of their own fans and the 6/4 (2.50) price could make them a popular choice for this promotion, with Dean Smith’s men knowing that an early goal could suck the life out of their opponents.

West Brom, however, scored first in 13 of their 23 home games during the regular season, including four of their last six, but it is worth noting that they went on to win only nine of those fixtures.

As well, no team took more away points than Aston Villa’s 16 after conceding the first goal, with the Birmingham-based side losing just four of the 12 away games in which they failed to score the first goal.

Villa conceded first in six of their last seven away Championship games but won on four of those occasions - drawing the other two - and the 9/5 (2.80) on West Brom to win may be the way to go, given Villa’s tendency to concede first on the road.
