Hull vs Birmingham
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull).
Both teams stand at the verge for qualification to the post-season contests, and with just 12 more rounds remaining in the competition, time is fast running out before fates are sealed. Birmingham, as well as Hull, rely very much on their in-form frontlines to deliver results, and with them locking horns, as well as, with a place in the Premier League up for grabs, the game should definitely produce sparks.
After their slow start to the season, Hull transformed themselves into beasts at home. And this Sunday, they will rely on the home crowd to bring the tie under control. Birmingham is evenly matched with their recent form, and they have the added boost of having thwarted one of the current best teams in the Championship, Bristol City, the last match-day, and that too on the road.

Hull vs Birmingham Prediction
Both are contesting at their highest levels possible, and with the season winding up, and the teams still at the tip of qualification to the playoffs, the game will surely be fought like a final. And since either relies too much on their particular offensive lines, the fixture has all the likelihood to turn out to be a goal-fest.
Their recent head-to-head pairings also suggest the same outcome. The last three encounters overall had a total of 16 goals, and the last four at this venue had 19. Also, five of the last eight meetings and three of the last four at this ground witnessed goals from both teams.
Moreover, Hull has scored two or more goals in their last seven home ties in a row, whereas Birmingham did the same in seven of their last ten on the road, and in four of their last five overall.
And finally, the last four away ties of Birmingham had over 2.5 goals, and for the whole season, they have taken part in away ties with an average of 3.1 goals per tie.
As these trends explicitly suggest, we expect a game filled with goals, and with contribution from both.
