Did You Know?

  • Villa and West Brom have never appeared in the Champions playoffs against each other. The only West Midland rivals to do so were WBA and Wolves back in 2007, although neither won promotion.
     
  • 16 out of the last 18 teams to win the first leg of the semi-final Championship play-off have progressed to the final.
     
  • The Baggies have only once lost the first leg of a play-off semi-final – the 1992/93 play-off against Swansea City. They managed to overturn the deficit in the second-led to win 3-2 at the Hawthorns on aggregate.
     
  • With Dwight Gayle side-lined through injury, the Baggies have cause for concern. They have just a 33%-win ratio without the Newcastle loanee compared to 54% win ratio with him in the team.
