After reaching the play offs last season, the 2019-20 campaign has been a little tougher for Gloucester.

They will head to Worcester on Saturday as their season resumes, and this is a bottom-four clash.

Gloucester badly need the win to keep next season’s European Champions Cup hopes alive.

Worcester Preview – Can Worcester secure a home success?

Worcester are W4 D0 L9 for this campaign and they have had a little trouble putting points on the board.

Their tally of 202 points is the lowest in the Premiership this season.

Worcester went into the enforced break on the back of a six match losing streak across domestic and European games.

In their last home fixture in the Premiership, they were narrowly toppled by a single point by Bath.

The last two home defeats for the Warriors have been by no more than a 4 point margin.

A Worcester +3 handicap in this fixture, considering that these are two teams out of form, is 10/11* (odds taken 19:05 GMT, Wednesday 12th August).

Our betting prediction:
Worcester 1-7 winning margin
16/5

Seven of the eight wins that Worcester have taken against Gloucester have happened on home soil at Sixways.

They last met just before Christmas last year and Gloucester took a comfortable 26-3 success at Kingsholm over the Warriors.

But Worcester did claim a win in their last home game against them, which was in April last year, a 27-20 win.

Worcester’s overall head to head record against Gloucester is W8 D4 L20.

 

Gloucester Preview – Can the Cherry & Whites find form on return?

It has been a bit of a disappointing season for Gloucester after having secured a top four finish in the last campaign.

They are down in 9th place as the season kicks back into action, four points ahead of Worcester.

Just like the Warriors, the Cherry & Whites lost their last six games before the break across all competitions.

They have just been struggling to click as cohesively as an attacking unit and just once in their last six games have Gloucester managed more than 20 points in a fixture.

Successive away defeats against Bristol, London Irish and Wasps does cast some doubt over Gloucester.

Gloucester are however are the 8/13 favourites for this match at Sixways* (odds taken 19:05 GMT, Wednesday 12th August).

It is only a W4 D0 L9 record that Gloucester have taken this season, identical to that of the Warriors.

However, they do easily beat Worcester in both points scored and points conceded in this campaign.

Will they be able to squeak across the line to get some precious away points that will restore hopes of pushing for a top six finish?

 

Worcester vs Gloucester Betting Advice

We can’t see the value in backing Gloucester at odds-on in the match outright in this one.

They have had a poor season, but have managed to outscore the Warriors at least.

But in our opinion, the home advantage for Worcester takes that advantage away.

 

Key Facts – Worcester vs Gloucester Betting Tip

  • Worcester have lost their last six games in all competitions
  • Worcester lost 36-3 at Gloucester earlier this season
  • Gloucester and Worcester have identical W4 L9 records this season

 

As Worcester did win their last home fixture against the Cherry & Whites, we are going to support them to do it again at a much more favourable 11/8 quote(odds taken 19:05 GMT, Wednesday 12th August).

All in all we expect this to be a little scrappy and only a fine margin between the teams, whatever the outcome.
