Swansea City vs Rotherham
Date: Friday, 19 April 2019
Kick-Off 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
Rotherham United are in desperate need for points being two points shy of the safe zone with just four matches remaining before the end of the season. Can they find salvation with a victory over Swansea City on Good Friday away at Liberty Stadium? It will be a very challenging task for the Millers without doubts given the Swans are one of the strongest home teams in the entire league.
The truth is Swansea practically have nothing but pride to play for with a nine-point deficit to sixth-placed Bristol City coming into this 43rd Matchday. They fell 4-0 away at Queens Park Rangers last weekend. However, they own a fabulous home record of 11 wins, 4 draws and only 5 defeats in 20 league matches at Liberty Stadium. They also won three on the spin before the aforementioned catastrophe at Loftus Road Stadium.
Swansea City vs Rotherham: Head-to-head
Draw was by far the most common of outcomes in head to head history between these two rivals.
They have four wins apiece, while as many as 12 of 20 H2H clashes ended without a winner.
Rotherham United claimed a 2-1 victory when they hosted the Swans in the first part of the season in mid-December last year.
Swansea City lost just one of ten home outings with the Millers, six of which ended in draws.
Swansea City vs Rotherham: Prediction
The Swans won eight, drew one and lost one of past ten home outings across competitions. The only defeat came against Premier League heavyweights Manchester City in the FA Cup quarter-final and it was only a narrow one (2-3).
Graham Potter’s troops notched two or more goals in all of past six home outings in all competitions. They are now up against the weakest defensive line in the entire league and we can easily see them bag at least two goals on the day. The home win in a high-scoring affair is what we expect to see on Friday at Liberty Stadium.
