Swansea vs Wigan Match preview
Swansea was disappointed in their previous match which ended in a goalless draw on the road against Cardiff. Both their recent two draws have failed to produce any goals from it.
However, the Swans are unbeaten at home in the recent four home matches in the campaign. Even their last home match earned all three points over Charlton with a 1-0 scoreline.
In the meantime, Wigan marked their third loss within the last five games after the 0-2 loss against Bristol City at home. Also, the Latics have recorded only one win in their prior ten fixtures in major competitions.
Besides that, Wigan ended their 13 games losing streak on the road in their previous away trip. Significantly, they defeated Birmingham with a 2-3 score on the board. Hence, Wigan will sometimes produce problems for the Swans at Liberty Stadium.
Swansea vs Wigan Prediction
Wigan is the second last placed team in the league table and also a strong contender for relegation this season. Also, they have won only five matches in their 27 league appearances and four of them were at home.
Meanwhile, the Swans are on the top part of the table with a 19 points difference with Wigan. Another three points will take them to the top six spots in the league table. Hence, the home team will be eager to draw the first blood in the match.
However, the Swans will not be taking risks after the Latics have taken all three points from the latter’s prior trip. So, we can expect the host to score early and defend their lead until the end.
Hence, Swansea has more chance of winning the game. Also, there is a possibility that the total score in the clash will be under 2.5 goals.
