Burton Albion vs Sheffield Wednesday: Preview and Prediction

Burton Albion vs Sheffield Wednesday-Match Preview and Prediction-16-August-2012

Burton Albion vs Sheffield Wednesday:
England – League Championship.
Date: Tuesday, 16 August, 2016,
Kick-off: 19:45 UK.
Venue: Pirelli Stadium (Burton-upon-Trent).

Burton Albion started their life in Championship with back-to-back defeats. After the away defeat to Nottingham Forest in the 4-3 thriller, Bristol once again looked bright in the 2-1 defeat at home to Bristol City. They seem to have grabbed all three points against Bristol, only to be denied by a 94th minute goal by Tammy Abraham. The Brewers have shown that they can compete at this level, but they need to find some more consistency if they are to stay in the league beyond the 2016/17 season.

Sheffield Wednesday, who lost in the promotion play-offs for Premier League last season had two tough fixtures in the first two rounds of this season’s Championship. A home win against Aston Villa and an away draw at Norwich City are two strong results at this point. They also looked extremely solid in defense, hardly giving their opponents any chance to score from open play.

Burton Albion vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head-to-Head Stats

This will be the first official meeting between Burton Albion and Sheffield Wednesday.

Burton Albion vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction

Burton Albion are newbies at this level, while Sheffield Wednesday are a team of proven pedigree. Also there is a bay in the quality between the players of both sides. Unlike in the first two matches where they sit back cautiously against stronger teams, Sheffield are expected to take the game to their opposition here.

Sheffield have failed to win their last 6 away matches in the Championship, but this is of less relevance here. If they play close to what they did in the first two games, they will win this quite comfortable. However, the total number of goals is expected to stay under three.
