Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 16th March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).
Wednesday could never hope to emulate the heroics of their local rivals Sheffield United, but at least they could try to get involved in the post-season proceedings. That is certainly not much of an ask. As of now, they are four points below the last playoff spot, and of the teams competing for the objective, Sheffield is the only one without a loss in the last five match-days.
Blackburn has a safety buffer of quite some points, but it’s mainly thanks to their good performances early in the season. One problem they will really be wary about is their defense. They have conceded goals in par with the teams right at the bottom end of the league table.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn Head-to-head (h2h)

Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn Prediction
Wednesday is unbeaten in their last nine ties in a row and was so in 16 of their last 18. At home, they have another streak going on with ten fixtures without a loss.
On the other hand, Blackburn was winless in seven of their last eight ties and lost six of these eight. On the road, unbelievably, they were winless in 12 of their last 13 attempts. On the basis of these observations, along with the home advantage of Sheffield, the top pick is definitely a Wednesday win.
Coming to goals, Blackburn conceded two or more goals in eight of their last eleven games on the road, whereas Sheffield has a scoring streak going on in the last eight h2h games. At this venue, the hosts recorded two or more goals in six of the last eight encounters.
Wednesday will be eager to see through that their incredible momentum gifts them the playoff spot. Against an under-performing side like Birmingham, they will surely be keen to record a great win. Expect the hosts to do so with style. At least two goals are in order against this shambolic defense.
