Derby vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction
Losing one to nil against Blackburn in their previous league encounter marked the third winless game in the run for Derby.
Besides, the Rams have recorded only one win in the last five matches in the campaign. Also, they have scored only twice in the same period.
Meanwhile at home, the host has a pretty good form with only one loss in 10 home matches so far. Four of the nine unbeaten games were draws.
The Rams have won against lower placed teams in the table. Also, they have shared the spoils when hosting stronger teams.
Even though the home team has an unbeaten run in the last five home matches, they are not that successful against top-part teams.
Sheffield Wednesday defeated Brentford in their previous league clash with a 2-1 score and it marked the second win in a row.
The Owls lost only one of the last five fixtures in the campaign. Despite the results, the guest has scored in all recent five clashes.
Moreover, the Owls have won four of their ten away fixtures in the campaign so far. Their previous encounter on the road against Charlton ended in a 1-3 win for the former.
Since Derby is the close neighbour of Charlton and alike in form, the Rams can expect the same treatment from Sheffield Wednesday.
Based on the analysis, the visitor has more chance of winning the game. But defeating Derby at home is not so easy. However, the Rams have kept top teams at bay. So, we can expect the chances for a draw too.
Henceforth, to be safer, it is better to go with a double chance in the game.
