Sheffield Wednesday vs Birmingham City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).
Sheffield Wednesday has lost two of their recent three fixtures in the campaign. This has hindered their attempt to jump out of the relegation zone. They are still a point away from escaping their chances in relegation this season. Hence, expect the Owls to give all in after the 1-0 loss on the road against Stoke.
Three consecutive losses in the campaign will put Birmingham in a tough spot. The away team has also extended their winless streak to the sixth game after losing 2-0 on the road to the likes of Millwall last time out. With both teams at the bottom, expect a low-scoring affair in ninety minutes at Hillsborough.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Birmingham City Prediction
Sheffield Wednesday has won in all their last five championship home matches in their form. The host enjoys the ground advantage and clean sheets in the last three attempts at home are clear evidence for its usage in the middle. Since they haven’t conceded in the last three home matches, it is not likely to score against a team that has averaged 0.7 goals in the league this season.
Taking their current form in the championship into consideration, the Owls are likely to create more chances in the game. Hence, the draw no bet over Sheffield Wednesday will probably be the best bet in the encounter. The punters can also rely on no BTTS in full-time to yield decent returns from the clash, as mentioned earlier because of the host’s vigorous defense at home.
