Sheffield United vs Preston Prediction and Match Preview

Sheffield United vs Preston Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Sheffield United vs Preston
Date: Tuesday, 14 September 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane.

Sheffield finally looked like a team that came from the PL the last match-day, and will be hoping to keep this intensity going on. Meanwhile, Preston are on a good run at the moment, and will certainly fancy their luck against this rival.

Likely, expect goals to come from either side of the pitch.

Sheffield were relegated from the top flight at the end of the previous season, as they finished dead last in the table. They had won just seven times, and lost an embarrassing 29 games through the stretch.

They had scored just 20 goals in total all through the campaign, and let in 63 goals in return. And coming into the Championship, they kept the same form going for some time. But lately, they have been turning around their fortunes, and are determined to post some much-needed points on the board, to make up for lost time.

In the meantime, Preston had finished 13th in the table the previous campaign in the Championship, and had scored a total of 49 goals in the process. They are also on an impressive streak at the moment, and are scoring goals consistently.

By the looks of things, expect a goal-fest this Tuesday at the Bramall Lane.

Sheffield had recorded a 6-2 win in their latest game, against Peterborough – to much joy of their fans. In the meantime, Preston were held to a 0-0 draw by Bristol City.

Going on, Sheffield had scored two or more goals in two of their past three fixtures, and they are on a four-game scoring streak at home.

They have also come from the best league in Europe, and they have a good offensive record against this opponent in h2h meetings at this venue.

On the other hand, their counterparts have scored three or more goals in two of their preceding three match-ups, and they too have found the back of the net consistently in h2h clashes.
