Sheffield Wednesday vs Luton Prediction & Match Preview

Sheffield Wednesday vs Luton
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 20 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).

Sheffield had begun on the perfect note and raced to the top of the table wasting no time. But, after back-to-back wins, they were dealt an unexpected loss by Millwall, which saw them getting the boot from the top-most spot, and subsequently Leeds taking their place.

If Wednesday is serious about their intentions to gain promotion, they will have to bounce back right away, and fortunately, they have got the perfect opportunity coming up.

This Tuesday, they are at home, and host new entrees into the competition, Luton, who’s winless so far in Championship 2019-20, and lost their sole match on the road.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Luton Prediction

Sheffield has been a major presence in the Championship for quite a long time, and this season is a frontrunner to gain promotion to the Premier League. Moreover, they have done justice to their objective so far with them winning both their opening fixtures.

On top of that, they have the home advantage too.

Coming to Luton, they are yet to get used to life in this top division, after their entry just this summer. They are winless so far this season in the league, and in fact, lost two of their three league fixtures. Also, their only away tie ended up with them getting defeated as well.

Finally, Sheffield remained unbeaten in both their h2h meetings in 2019 and kept clean sheets in them too.

As these observations suggest, the top pick is for the hosts to register a win to nil this Tuesday.
