Sheffield Wednesday vs Newcastle United
England – The Championship
Date: Saturday, 8th April 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Hillsborough Stadium.
The last game of round 41 is like the dessert to top things off. Both teams have plenty of quality and both need the 3 points on Saturday evening.
Sheffield W returned to winning ways last round after 2-0 victory over rock bottom Rotherham. The team also climbed to the play-off spots after Fulham’s defeat at the hands of Derby County.
Still the team looks a bit out of form as they recorded 4 winless games before Rotherham. To be honest the team got a bit lucky against Rotherham and didn’t impress much. There were a lot of individual mistakes which Rotherham just could not capitalize on.
Newcastle are still top of the table but just a single point above Brighton. The Magpies got a victory over Burton last round but they were hardly impressive. They dominated most of the game but just could not create enough chances. Finally, after 67 minutes of play Matt Ritchie managed to place a shot at the back of the net. This time United needs to put up a better show as the opponent is distinctively better one.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Newcastle United: Head to head
From the 5 games these teams have played both teams have 2 victories while the 5th game is a 2-2 draw.
The last 2 games though were both won by Sheffield Away at Newcastle with a score of 1-0.
All 4 games except the 1-1 draw finished with a score of 2-2 for one of the teams
Sheffield Wednesday vs Newcastle United: Prediction
Considering both teams are performing well defensively and are not going all out on attack backing under 2.5 goals may turn to be a winner.
Newcastle are the better team in terms of form and individual quality so they may as well clinch the game. Their away record is the best in the league so that proves how dangerous it is to underestimate them.
