Sheffield United vs Birmingham
England – The Championship
Date: Wednesday 19th September 2018
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).
Bristol City ended Sheffield United’s fantastic run of 4 wins in a row when they won at Ashton Gate Stadium at the weekend by 1-0. United are back at home though and will be looking to put that defeat firmly to one side.
The good news is that with recent form they are in 5th place and have 12 points and are just three behind the league leaders Leeds. At home they have won 2 and lost 1 so far but there are goals in this team and they have scored 7 in their home matches so far.
Birmingham are in 21st place and 7 points behind their hosts and will be the underdogs to win this game especially as they have to travel up to Sheffield. They are still in search of their first win this season as from their opening 7 games they have lost 2 but drawn 5. This includes draws in their last 3 games in a row.
The betting for this game sees United at odds on to win the game and Birmingham can be backed at around 4.00 (3/1) with the draw coming in at 3.50 (5/2)
Sheffield United vs Birmingham: Head to Head
The teams have only played each other two times at this stadium in the league in 10 years with a draw taking place and a win for Sheffield United.
The last 3 league meetings have a 100% success rate for both teams to score.
Sheffield United vs Birmingham: Prediction
Our pick here is to see a victory for the home team. They have been in great form until they lost last weekend but that was away from home and they will be out to make that right in front of their fans.
But it’s possible to see Birmingham score and we will also take both teams to find the back of the net. Finally we think this game will be very close and will predict the correct score.
