Swansea vs Derby Prediction, Tips & Match Preview

Swansea vs Derby
England Championship
Date: Saturday, 1 May 2021
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Liberty Stadium, Swansea.

Derby County will be hoping to snatch salvation points on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Wales to take on Swansea City at Liberty Stadium.

The Rams have not been pulling up any trees of late as a series of five subsequent defeats kept them close to the danger area.

Wayne Rooney’s men are only four points above Huddersfield Town who also have a game in hand on them, meaning a defeat here could seriously hurt the team.

Swansea City will feature promotional playoffs regardless of what happens in the last two rounds of the regular season.

Steve Cooper has already begun to limit his stars minutes, trying to keep them well rested for the most important matches in the post-season.

Nonetheless, the Swans will clearly want to boost up the confidence ahead of these games. They are not doing very well at the moment, having claimed just two points in the last three league affairs.

Swansea vs Derby Head-to-head

The draw has been the most frequent of the outcomes in a short history of this rivalry. It happened on five occasions in eleven games.

The Swans managed to snatch no more than two wins in eleven encounters with Derby County.

The Rams will go into this undefeated in the last seven meetings with Swansea City. The streak includes back-to-back wins in the last two H2H outings.

Swansea vs Derby Prediction

Swansea conceded only 15 goals in 22 home fixtures this season. They will be playing Derby County who took only one point from the last eight league outings on the road.

However, the Swans have not been quite impressive in the final third of late either, especially in the fixtures at Liberty Stadium where they failed to find the back of the net in three of the last four matches.

The Under 2.5 Goals FT pick is thus our main betting recommendation here. You can back it at the odds of 1.66.

As for the outcome, we will stick to the draw at the half time at the 2.10 odds since we hesitate to back either of the two out-of-form sides to win it.
