Wigan vs Ipswich Prediction & Match Preview

Wigan vs Ipswich
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 23rd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: DW Stadium (Wigan).

Ipswich is, beyond a doubt, the worst team in the league. As 33 match-days have passed, all the team could manage was just three wins. They have conceded the most number of goals so far, and along with Bolton remains one of the two teams to yet record more than 25 goals. They have just 20 points to their name and resides at the bottom-most of the table. Also, they are six points off the nearest team, and nine points off the safety line.

Wigan sits atop the final quarter of teams and has carved a space of their own for amnesty from relegation. After a short series of tough games at home against some of the best teams in the league, they were pitted with some low-profile sides, which the team took ample advantage of. As of now, they are on an unbeaten streak of three games.

Wigan vs Ipswich Prediction

Wigan has remained unbeaten in their last three overall games, and in their last three home ties. Ipswich, on the other hand, lost their last nine away matches in a row and were winless in 17 of their last 18. Of these 18, 15 were losses. Moreover, in overall encounters, the squad was winless in an astonishing 33 of their last 36 attempts.

Additionally, h2h ties show a trend of home teams having the advantage, especially in recent pairings. Considering all these, I tip the hosts to take the win.

Regarding the score, Ipswich failed to score in nine of their last eleven away ties, and in three of their last five at this stadium. Wigan, meanwhile, has never registered more than two goals at their home in h2h games, and for their last 18 home ties in a row, never went beyond three.

A 1-0, 2-0, or 3-0 scoreline, in favor of the hosts, is the most probable outcome.
