Sheffield W-Sheffield U, Championship Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR WEDNESDAY - UNITED
Sheffield Wednesday is not that far from the top 6. The owls have two complicated matches in the derby now and then with Derby as a guest, but then their program is more acceptable. They are also in a very strong form. 7 straight games without loss and 1 loss in the last 12 games. Of course, the form in such derbies does not matter, but both teams go out with self-confidence.
Sheffield United are also in good shape and are generally one of the strongest teams in the league, so they are also fighting for the first place. The blades make a remarkable season and their overall progress is huge as before 2 seasons they played in League 1. Now they can enter the Premier League. They came after a valuable success over West Bromwich, which kept their strong streak.
Our prediction will be Half Time – Sheffield Wednesday or draw at 1.45. The reason for this is that Sheffield Wednesday is the strongest team in the league as far as the first half games are concerned. They have only 3 losses in 19 home games in all competitions in the first half. In addition, they have only conceded 6 goals in these games, and in eight consecutive home games in the league they have not conceded a goal before the half time. We think this will be a very cautious match, especially in the first part, so it will not be surprising if we see 0-0 in the first half.
- Of their last 5 away games vs Wednesday, Sheffield United have been leading during the half time in only 1
