Swansea vs Luton
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 27 June 2020
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea)
The home side is continuing their good run of form after the defeat to third place Fulham. Currently, the Swans are 9th in the table still keeping their chances alive for the Playoff spot. They are fresh from a 0-3 away win against Middlesbrough.
The Hatters are at the bottom of the table waiting for the imminent relegation. At the current situation draws will not help them to fight for survival in the Championship. Their defense played a major role in putting them at the bottom. With 72 goals conceded they are the worst defensive record in the league. No other side has given away more than 65 goals this season.
Swansea vs Luton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Swans are on a 4 match win streak against this opposition.
- They have three clean sheets in 4 of those matches.
- Luton previously won this fixture back in March 2002.
- Three of their five previous head to head matches had less than 2.5 goals.
- In their 4 meetings at this ground, the hosts have 3 wins and a loss.
- The home team kept a clean sheet in all three of those matches they won.
Swansea vs Luton: Prediction
Even though Luton is way below their upcoming opposition, a 4 match unbeaten run is going on for them. This includes the surprise win against Bretford who is fourth in the table. But the head to head stats and their away form is against the Hatters. From 19 matches on the road, they have won 3 and lost 15. The only win in their 5 previous outings was against a struggling Middlesbrough. So I do not think the visitors will have a profound impact on Saturday’s game.
In 27 of the 38 matches that Luton played the final score had more than 2.5 goals. With a defense like theirs, we can expect a similar score against Swansea as well. The hosts have scored 24 goals in their 19 home games with 2.3 average goals per game. So I am backing this one to end with the hosts winning and the final score to have more than 2.5 goals.
