Hull vs Sheffield United
England – Championship
Date: Monday, 22nd April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull).
Hull has their playoff hopes still alive. With four more rounds to go, they are just five points away from their target, and with some consistent performances over the course of the next month, they can, if they are lucky too, to take part in the entry competition to the Premier League. They have been pulling in some good performances to justify their objective.
But their next foe is not some ordinary Joe. Sheffield has a place in the playoffs in their bag and is currently going after the direct-promotion spot, in possession of Leeds. The team just has to overcome a deficit of three points, and considering that they can avoid a lot of unnecessary tension and formality with a direct promotion, United will definitely go after it.

Hull vs Sheffield United Prediction
Hull is desperate for points. With 12 more to fight for, they need to make up a difference of five points to get into the playoffs. They have been on fine form recently, and with nothing else to lose, the team will surely go after their objective – especially since they are at home.
But it’s easier said than done though. Their opponent is Sheffield United, who is in the playoffs with a healthy lead, and who is going after Leeds for direct promotion to the Premier League. With only three points lacking, United believes they can make it to the top division without further formality.
As such, the game will extremely intense, and will see a lot of goals, with both teams taking part in the action. Moreover, 10 of the last 14 h2h ties had the BTTS option checked, and four of the last six at this venue had the same stat as well. Going on, only once has a team at home failed to score, and Sheffield has failed to score at this stadium only once too.
Finally, Hull recorded two or more goals in their last 11 home ties in a row, and Sheffield netted goals in 16 of their last 20 road trips. Without a doubt, expect at least three goals from the tie, and for either team to take part in it too.
