Birmingham vs Ipswich
England – The Championship
Date: Saturday 29th September 2018
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: St Andrew’s (Birmingham).
Birmingham will come into this game in 17th place and have gone the last 5 games unbeaten. But their problems are that they draw too many games and that is why they have been losing so many points.
From 9 games played in the Championship Birmingham have drawn 6 of them and even though they are avoiding defeats because most of their matches are ending this way these draws are feeling like them.
Last weekend they sprung a huge surprise by going to Elland Road and beating Leeds United who had not lost a game up until then, the final score ended 2-1 but Birmingham were already 2-0 ahead and the game was wrapped up. This was the clubs first win of the season and now they will be expected to collect all three points on Saturday too.
Ipswich are 23rd and have no wins yet from a possible 27 points they have gained just 5. They have drawn 3 of their last 5 games and away from home they have lost all 4 games and have scored just once on the road so far.

Birmingham vs Ipswich: Prediction
Birmingham are the odds on favourites to win which does make sense given just how poor Ipswich have been. This is traditionally a difficult league to predict but on paper and on form and on history, Birmingham should win this game. Nobody could see them beating Leeds last week so you never know what can happen.
Che Adams scored both goals against Leeds, now he is at home we should back him to score another as he forward looks like he is in form.
