Sheffield United vs Ipswich Prediction & Match Preview

Sheffield United vs Ipswich
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.15 UK/ 18.15 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).

Sheffield United is currently second in the league table and has a considerable chance to make it to the top, as league-topper Norwich has been going through a slump. With two more match-days to go through, United will try everything in their kitty to take the title. Moreover, since Leeds, their nearest competitor is taking on Aston Villa, the team has a chance to ensure direct promotion, with a win in this tie.

Considering that they are taking on Ipswich, the worst team in the competition, and with added home advantage, anything other than a huge win would not satisfy their fans. Having played 44 games so far, Ipswich is the only team yet to touch the 30-point mark, and one of only two teams to touch the 40-point mark.

Sheffield United vs Ipswich Prediction

Ipswich is easily the worst team in the competition. They are at the extreme end of the table and have already been eliminated. 22 of the 24 teams in the tournament have posted at least 12 more points than the team. They have conceded the second-most number of goals on the road, and recorded just two away wins all season. One of those was against fellow-relegated Bolton.

Sheffield, meanwhile, was unbeaten in 15 of their last 16 games and won seven of their last nine home ties. They are also a major contender to lift the title and have virtually locked in direct-promotion to the Premier League. A win in this tie will make it official.

The additional home advantage will help them in that regard. Also, United scored two or more goals in five of their last seven home ties, whereas Ipswich conceded the same amount in 18 of their last 23 on the road. Expect a huge win for the hosts.
