Derby vs Swansea
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 16 December 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Pride Park (Derby).

Derby hasn’t left the habit of dropping points in the league this term. However, the host continues their unbeaten run to the fifth game in their campaign. The goalless draw at home with Stoke City in the previous encounter was their second consecutive draw in the schedule.

Swansea is dealing their business within the top three spots on the table this season. The Swans had only a single slip up within the last five fixtures in the campaign. They will visit on the back of a three-game unbeaten streak, following a 0-2 win on the road against Cardiff last time out.

Derby vs Swansea Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The host has been unbeaten for the past six meetings.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 2-3 away win for the Rams.
  • Both teams have scored in four of the recent five fixtures.
  • The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
  • Two of their recent three clashes have ended in a draw.

Derby vs Swansea Prediction

Derby has scored only 8 goals in their 18 appearances, while 7 of those attempts have ended in a draw in their league schedule. Since the Rams cannot find the back of the net in the middle, they are making up for it by building a stern defense against the opponents.

Still, the host has conceded 22 goals in the process but has conceded only 3 goals within their recent five fixtures in the campaign. The tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be the best bet considering the Swans have averaged 1.1 goals in the campaign so far this season.

The double chance favoring both sides will probably be the ideal choice, as the match is sizing to be anyone’s game at Pride Park.

The host enjoys the ground advantage and has been unbeaten in the last six h2h meetings with the Swans in their schedule. In the meantime, Swansea has a better run in the league this season and is 20 points ahead of the home team on the table as it stands.

Derby vs Swansea Betting tips

  • Over 1.5 goals @ 1.44 (4/9).
  • Double chance: Derby or Swansea @ 1.40 (2/5).
