Swansea City vs Ipswich Town
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
Ipswich Town have a very tough visit this round playing against Swansea and they need a small miracle to leave the relegation zone after the game.
Swansea are doing ok in the league but nothing more. They need to step up their game a bit if they want to challenge for the top places. Currently the Swans are outside top 6 on goal difference and will be looking to climb above this week. The team still has some problems with Montero and Bony unfit and they need to cope with the situation without them.
Midweek Swansea showed their most familiar weakness since the start of this season. They created chances had tries on the target but failed to score their chances against Wigan. That’s the team’s 4th goalless draw this season which should be a concern. They need to find their scoring form otherwise it will be difficult to get anywhere near promotion.
The Tractor Boys are currently looking in trouble. The team looks destabilized and has huge issues in front of goal. They have the joint lowest goals along with Rotherham and that puts them in danger. They are also the only winless team in the league which further piles on the pressure on the club.
Tuesday offered their fans another disappointment. The team looked uninspired against Middlesbrough and rightfully lost the game. Two early goals for the visitors secured their victory. Ipswich tried to undo the damage but failed to create enough chances despite dominating possession.

Swansea vs Ipswich: Predictions
Swansea will be determined to get past this challenge and get all the points. Ipswich will have hard time scoring in this game so Swansea will just need to find a way into the back of the net. Likely results include 1-0 and 2-0 as Ipswich are having troubles on the road while Swansea doesn’t score a lot.
