Swansea vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – FA Cup 2018
Date: Tuesday, 27th February 2018
Kick-off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
Swansea welcome Sheffield Wednesday for the repeat of the FA Cup tie with their first leg clash ending in a goal-less draw.
The Seagulls have made it a habit of holding teams to goal-less draws in recent weeks, with the team largely struggling in front of opposition goal. Their overall form is terrible with only 1 win coming from the last six in all venues and competitions. On the road, they are without a win in six and failed to find the back of the net in 4.
Wednesday did tried to break the shackles on the weekend with an attacking oriented approach in their recent outings. But things didn’t pay off for Jos Luhukay as his team suffered 1-2 and 2-4 defeats to Millwall and Aston Villa respectively.
Swansea are coming on the back of a two match win-less run themselves, but they do present a big threat while playing at the Liberty stadium. Under Carlos Carvalhal, the Swans bagged 5 home wins on the bounce with the likes of Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool at the receiving end during the period. Cosidering that they trounced the League Two side Notts County by a massive 8-1 margin in the previous round of FA Cup, Sheffield must expect a tough test on Tuesday.
Swansea vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head-to-head

The two fixtures played at Liberty Stadium are draws.
Interestingly, Wednesday haven’t scored in the last four meetings with Swansea.
Swansea vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction
A repeat of the first leg can be completely ruled out at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday. Swansea had won 5 on the bounce at home in all competitions including the 2-1 win against Wolves and 8-1 thumping on Notts County in the FA Cup fixtures. Therefore, a team like Sheffield Wednesday who are struggling for goals at the moment could be in for a heavy defeat here.
