Swansea vs Coventry
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 24 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium.
The Swans are in a promising position at the moment. They are placed fourth in the table (playoff zone), and still have two games in hand. Note that they need a surplus of just one point to climb to the second spot – which would allot them a direct entry into the top flight.
They have conceded the least number of goals so far. In fact, they are the only squad in the league to keep the number of conceded goals below 20, and only three other teams have kept it below 30.
They are also at home this Wednesday, and here they have been on a roll all through this campaign.
Meanwhile, the Sky Blues are one of the worst teams in the whole Championship. They are placed just above the relegation zone, and only two other squads have conceded more goals than them.
They have also been struggling on the road for quite some time, and most importantly, they have a worrying h2h record against this foe over the years.
By the looks of things, expect Swansea to have the edge this Wednesday at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea vs Coventry: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Steve Cooper’s men have a 100% unbeaten record against this foe over the past two decades.
- They have won three of the preceding five clashes.
- They have kept clean sheets in four of the past six meetings.
- The latest match-up at this stadium had ended in a 2-1 win for the hosts.
Swansea vs Coventry Prediction
The Swans lost 4-1 on the road the last match-day, against Huddersfield. In the meantime, Mark Robins’s men won 2-0 at home the past game week, against Brentford.
Going on, Cooper’s men have the opportunity to climb to the second position in standings, and with the season about to enter its home stretch, it’s something that cannot be taken lightly.
They had won ten of their preceding fifteen overall matches, and have lost just twice at home this whole season. One of these defeats had come against Manchester City.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 11 of their preceding 14 overall games, and have won just twice on the road since September of 2020.
On top of that, the Swans also have a dominating h2h record against this rival over the years.
Likely, expect Swansea to deliver a winning performance at the Liberty Stadium.
