Wigan vs Birmingham
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 1 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: DW Stadium (Wigan).
Wigan needs to make this home tie count, as they have been an absolute disaster on the road this season. They have the worst stats for away performances, and with them already battling to avoid the relegation zone, players are under pressure to put on a great show this Tuesday.
Birmingham too is backed into a corner. After two back-to-back wins, the squad had a rough schedule, and this expectedly resulted in losses. Now, their mid-table position is under threat, and the cavalry will have to retaliate to keep their chances alive.

- It’s been five years since the hosts recorded a win at the DW Stadium.
Wigan vs Birmingham Prediction
The Latics have just one win to boast of from their previous nine fixtures, and just two from their last fourteen. Also, after the opening day of the campaign, they had to go through a five-tie losing run, and at home, they were winless in their prior four match-days.
On the other hand, despite the two losses the Blues have suffered at the moment, they are still comparatively far stronger than their opponents, and importantly, the defeats should them egg them more to put on a great fight this Tuesday.
Also, they have not lost at this venue since 2014 and won the last time they visited this stadium with a 0-3 scoreline.
As such, rely on the guests to avoid a loss at the least.
Coming to goals though, the home advantage will play a role. Moreover, Pep Clotet’s men have conceded thrice or more in four of their last five away ties, while Wigan scored twice or more in two of their former three overall fixtures.
As these stats point out, the chances for a clean sheet looks bleak for either.
