Hopes for a rare Wembley appearance

Wolves’ FA Cup form hasn’t been great over the past few seasons, but now they are just one win away from what is a rare outing to Wembley. The Premier League side has only played at Wembley once since it reopened in 2007 when they reached the FA Cup semi-finals in 2018/19. Then, they led Watford 2-0 going into the final 15 minutes but ultimately fell apart, eventually losing 3-2 after extra-time. It was a harsh defeat for Wolves, who had dreamed of a first FA Cup final since they won the competition in 1959/60.

Wolves haven’t had the most straightforward run to the FA Cup quarter-finals, facing two Premier League sides and a rival. First up were Brentford, and Wolves needed a replay and extra time to finally see off the Bees. Then, there was the heated game against West Brom, which Wolves won 2-0 despite issues in the stands. And then, last time out, they beat Brighton 1-0 thanks to a second-minute goal from Mario Lemina.

Coventry, meanwhile, is looking to return to Wembley for the second time in under a year. Of course, the Sky Blues were losing finalists in the Championship play-off final last year, beaten by Luton Town. However, regarding the FA Cup, Coventry hasn’t reached the final since they won the competition in 1986/87. This may be Coventry’s only chance for a trip to Wembley this season outside the play-off spots, though things are very close in the Championship.

The Sky Blues have had fun in the FA Cup this season, starting with a 6-2 win over League One side Oxford United. They beat fellow Championship side Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 after a replay and thrashed non-league Maidstone United 5-0 last time. Four games, 16 goals scored.

As mentioned, Coventry has been a high scorer in the FA Cup this season, netting 16 goals across their four games, with a 1-1 draw against Sheffield Wednesday in their initial fourth-round tie, their lowest-scoring match. Ellis Simms and Callum O’Hare are Coventry’s joint-top scorers in the competition, each with three goals, though O’Hare’s have come in one fewer game and fewer minutes.

Wolves are the favourites for this game, and it’s not hard to see why. The home advantage and being on the Premier League side will work in Wolves’ favour, but remember that these markets only count for 90 minutes. If Wolves win in extra time or on penalties, you must back those specific markets.
