England – Championship.
Date: Saturday,19th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
The Swans have never found form after being relegated from the Premier League season this year. They will face a strong Sheffield United in Round 28 of the English Championship.
The team from Wales are 13th in the table 10 wins and losses in their 27 matches. They have scored an impressive 36 goals so far while conceding 32 goals in return. At present they are on a 4 game unbeaten run in all competitions which includes 2 wins. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 games and both the teams found the net in 3 games as well.
But at home, they are finding it hard to win matches. The Jacks have lost 3 of their previous 5 matches in front of the home crowd and have only 1 win in that period. The last match here saw them share the spoils with Wigan as the match finished 2-2.
The Blades are second in the table with just 4 points behind the toppers Leeds United. They will need a win in upcoming matches to stay ahead of the nearest challengers Norwich and to put pressure on Leeds as well.
In their last 5 competitive games, they won all except the, match against Barnet in the FA Cup. That 0-1 home defeat was the only time they were beaten in the last 6 matches overall. Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of their previous 5 matches across all venues.
Including 3 wins they are on a 5 match unbeaten run in the last 5 games on the road. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those matches and they scored 2 or more goals in 4 of those 5 games too.
The visitors will be high on morale since they won their last outing against Wigan 0-3. So the hosts will have a hard day at the office on Saturday.
