Swansea vs Preston
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 17 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
Preston was one of the most exciting teams to watch the last season, from a neutral perspective, as they equally thrilled with scoring goals, as well as conceding them. They seem to have adopted the same strategy for this campaign too, with them losing their opener on the road, without even scoring once, and then delivering a major 3-0 victory over Wigan, at home.
Swansea, a mid-table finisher last time around, could pose some serious questions to this set of players, especially taking their home advantage into account. Moreover, the team has made a great start to their Championship run, with them avoiding a loss in both their encounters so far.

Swansea vs Preston Prediction
At the Liberty Stadium, Swansea holds a 100% winning record over this opponent, and that’s a stat that needs serious attention. The level of consistency over the course of these many years surely holds merit to be considered for this upcoming fixture.
Not just that, but the team also kept clean sheets in the last three h2h clashes here and scored two or more goals in every encounter bar once.
Going on, the team is unbeaten in their last 14 games and won eight of their last nine. At home, they are on a streak of nine straight unbeaten fixtures and was so in 16 of their last 17 too.
Meanwhile, Preston lost two of their previous three away ties, and six of their former eleven too. Also, they are an inconsistent bunch of players, and cannot be counted on to deliver a victory when needed.
With all these in mind, the top pick is surely a Swansea triumph.
