Bolton is sitting in the playoffs after the first 3 rounds with 7 points. That’s a dream start for the team. Still Wanderers have some issues especially at the back. The team has tough times keeping their goal intact. For now their attack compensates for this, but this was a clear problem last season.

Bolton managed to get their first clean sheet in a long time last round. The team traveled to Madejski Stadium and took a minimal victory over Reading putting tons of pressure to the struggling side.

Birmingham is still winless although we can’t say that the team was too disappointing since the start of the season. Two draws against strong opponents like Swansea and Norwich ensured some early points. There also was a minimal defeat against heavy favorites like Middlesbrough which can’t be too disappointing either.

The team real intention and abilities this season will be seen this game. Sure The Blues did some decent result against stronger opponents but the games against direct rivals for relegation are always decisive.

Bolton vs Birmingham: Head-to-head

  • Birmingham is winless in 6 games in all competitions
  • Last 6 games between the sides has less than 1.5 goals
  • Birmingham are unbeaten in 5 games against Bolton winning 4 of them
  • Birmingham have won all their last 3 games at Macron stadium with 0-1

Bolton vs Birmingham: Predictions

This is massive fixture for both teams. Despite the good start Bolton are still counted as a team which will fight for relegation. This game can give a huge boost to any of the sides.

It likely to be a nervy game with lots of midfield battles and less exciting plays. Bolton may look like the team in form but in this game nothing is certain.

Bolton vs Birmingham: Bet Tips

  • Draw at half time 1/1 (2.00)
  • Under 2.5 goals at 5/8 (1.62).
