Sheffield Wednesday vs Swansea Prediction
Sheffield Wednesday has taken a dip in form in the league, especially at home. They tied their previous encounter at home with the third team in the table, Leeds. The host had only 43% ball possession in that fixture. Also, the Owls showcased 4 shots on target from 11 attempts in total. Even at their downside form, they gave a fight to Leeds. Hence, the host cannot be completely written off in the game.
On the other hand, Swansea has shown improvement in its form and has secured fourth place in the league table. They had to face Wigan in their previous trip on the road which ended in a 1-2 win for the visitor. Also, the guest scored in both the halves and led the second half in the ninety minutes.
Alongside, the Swans dominated the game with 63% ball possession and 14 goal attempts against 6 by Wigan. Since Wigan was from the bottom part of the table, it was an easy win for the Swans. However, it did increase the morale of the squad on the road.
Besides that, the host has recorded only two wins in the last five league home matches. Also, they are unbeaten in the last four clashes at home with two draws in it. Meanwhile, the Swans are the second best away team in the campaign. Also, the guest is winless in their league away fixtures and are the only team in the contest to achieve so.
Hence, based on their league performances, the host cannot be written off and the chances to win are more prone to the visitor. So, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game.
