Swansea vs Luton
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium.
The Swans have been one of the most consistent teams in the competition this season. They are currently placed seventh in the table, but are just two points below toppers, Norwich.
They also have conceded the fewest number of goals of all the teams in the league, and have lost just thrice all through this tournament.
Moreover, they are also at home, and here they have been performing at an even higher level in 2020. And considering their superior h2h record against this opponent, expect Swansea to have the upper hand this weekend.
However, note that the Hatters had won the latest h2h encounter, and disregarding some tough match-ups, they have had a good campaign in road games.
Likely, expect goals to come from both teams this Saturday.
Swansea vs Luton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nathan Jones’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last time these two teams locked horns. The game had taken place just five months back.
- However, before that they were on a losing run since 2004.
- Since 2000, the hosts have lost just twice at this stadium.
- Only once have the home team failed to score goals at this ground in the past 20-year period.
Swansea vs Luton: Prediction
Steve Cooper’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Middlesbrough. In the meantime, the Hatters had recorded a 3-1 win at home against Norwich.
Going on, the Swans were unbeaten in 12 of their previous 15 overall match-ups, and they remained so in nine of their previous ten appearances at home. In fact, they had won three of their preceding four home fixtures, and they had also won seven of their former ten games at this venue.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in ten of their preceding fourteen overall match-ups, and they were winless in four of their last six road trips as well.
In addition, since 2004, Cooper’s men also are on a winning run in h2h meetings, disregarding a single game.
As such, expect Swansea to post the three points on the board at the Liberty Stadium.
However, the Hatters had failed to score in just two of their former nine overall matches, and just in three of their preceding 14 games. They had also won the latest h2h clash, and just the last match-day, they had defeated toppers and potential champions Norwich (while scoring thrice against them).
For the reasons, expect goals to come from both teams this weekend.
