Sheffield Wednesday vs Swansea
Date: Saturday, 23rd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).
The string of draws that Sheffield had to go through in the recent match-days have seriously limited their chances to get featured in the playoff list for the Premier League.
Cardinal reason for this might be the ineffectiveness of their frontline in producing goals, while their defense pulls off great performances week in, week out.
Even though being on the road might handicap Swansea to an extent, they will find solace in the fact that they have always fared well against this opponent.
Also, despite just having three extra points on the board than their hosts, the team has raked in far better stats, especially in the defensive half.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Swansea Prediction
These teams have always paired together to produce lackluster games with very few goals. And that has been especially true about encounters at this venue. 100% of h2h matches at the Hillsborough ended with either one or none of the team on the scoresheet, and not a single one had more than two goals.
Coming to overall face-to-face encounters, five of the last six games could not see goals at either end of the pitch, and six of the last seven meetings had fewer than three goals. Also, ten of the last thirteen matches that involved Sheffield Wednesday had the same stat to show, whereas eight of the last nine had just one or none of the teams finding the back of the net. Coming to their home-ties, the last five in a row stood true to both of these stats.
The on-going trend definitely points towards another episode of a lackluster low-scoring tie.
Since, Swansea holds a 100% unbeaten record against Sheffield, and has never conceded a goal at this venue, brave punters can go for an away win at 2.75 odds.
