Sheffield Wed vs Birmingham – Prediction (Championship – 27.11.2019)




Preview and Teams Comparison.

An 88th minute goal saw Sheffield Wednesday lose 2-1 at West Brom last time out, extending the ‘Owls’ winless league run to four (D2, L2), and making it three games in a row where they have conceded multiple goals. Notably, that result also means seven of the ten match goals seen in Wednesday’s last three Championship games were scored after the 75th minute. Unbeaten in their last five home league fixtures, Wednesday have seen four of those matches feature under 2.5 goals. A solid defence has also helped the hosts concede just 0.63 goals per home league game – the Championship’s second best average. However they will be wary late on, as 31.25% of the goals Wednesday have conceded (home/away) arrived after the 80th minute.

Birmingham City’s recent 1-1 draw at Huddersfield marked their fifth consecutive winless away game. Outsiders here, the ‘Blues’ have failed to win nearly three-quarters (71.79%) of their league fixtures when starting as the betting outsider since the beginning of last season (W11, D11, L17). On their travels, Birmingham have conceded the opener six times this league campaign, with only newcomers Luton Town doing so on more occasions. However, perhaps surprisingly, it’s the last half-hour where the visitors appear to be most vulnerable, conceding over half (56.25%) of their away goals during this period.

Players to watch: Eight of the 13 matches Steven Fletcher (SFW) has scored in this calendar year saw both teams score. Meanwhile, Birmingham top-scorer Lukas Jutkiewicz has scored all four of his league goals after half-time. He also has three career goals and two assists versus Wednesday.

Stat attack: Wednesday have won only one of the previous six Championship H2Hs (W1, D1, L4). Of those six H2Hs, four featured over 2.5 goals. Five of Birmingham’s eight league defeats this season arrived by a one-goal margin.
