Swansea vs Birmingham
Date: Tuesday, 29th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
The Swans are currently on a 6 match unbeaten run in all competitions. They will look to improve that against Birmingham on Tuesday.
Swansea had a good start to the New Year and they are yet to lose a match. In 4 of their previous 6 games, the score had more than 2.5 goals at the final whistle. They are 11th in the table with just a point between them and their opponents for Tuesday. But home form does not look pretty for the Jacks, as they are one of the seven teams to lose 5 or more matches at home this season.
The Blues have been feeding on teams below them in the table, as they have won 8 of their 9 games against such teams. But the record against stronger opposition is just the opposite. They are prone to pressure if they concede first as they failed to win any of the last 10 league games where they conceded first.
Away from home, they have been poor in recent games, as they have only one win from the last 5 matches on the road. Garry Monk’s team have conceded in 4 of those away matches and are currently on a 2 match losing streak.
Both of them shared the spoils in the reverse fixture, but that may not be the case this Tuesday as things have changed since that game.
