Birmingham vs Swansea: Prediction and Betting Tips
The Blues need to go back to winning ways
It hasn’t been a successful season for Birmingham as the blues have nine wins and 18 losses from 38 games this season and find themselves at 21st position on the Championship standings with 38 points just three points ahead of the relegation zone.
Winning one game in their last five and three in the last 14 hasn’t helped boss Lee Bowyer’s ambitions of keeping the club in the Championship league for another season but they still have a chance with eight matches remaining, although their biggest worry is that 20th placed Rotherham has played four games fewer than them.
Lee Bowyer’s team have left their fate to be decided by other teams as they can only do their best to win and hope for Rotherham not to win their postponed matches. Their last outing needs to be forgotten having lost to Watford 3-0 in a match where the blues had just one shot on goal from 14 attempts.
The Swans to cement their spot for the playoffs
The Welsh side are on the opposite end of the table and with conflicting ambitions to that of their opponents. Boss Steven Cooper’s side are 3rd with 69 points comfortably situated in the playoff zone and will look to end a two-game losing streak as they travel to Birmingham.
Steve Cooper needs to improve his team’s scoring performance. The Swans have scored just four goals in their last four games and are on a scoring drought for the last two matches. They lost at home to Cardiff in their last match after failing to convert the 23 attempts they had to a goal.
With so many changes happening in a very long season on the Championship League standings, Steven Cooper and his team must be cautious with their situation with nine matches to be played still in the season, they have not secured the playoff spot as yet.
- Birmingham had 23 matches this season with under 2.5 goals scored
- Swansea had 27 matches this season with under 2.5 goals scored
- Birmingham have scored in one of their last four games
- Swansea haven’t scored in their last two games
Birmingham vs Swansea Prediction
Both teams are playing this match for contradicting purposes. Although the hosts are in a more critical position and thus need the win more, Swansea on the other hand will feel this game is a chance to add three points to their tally against one of the weaker sides.
We have seen throughout this season that this kind of matches don’t see a lot of goals scored. In 22 matches Birmingham played this season we have seen under 2.5 goals scored and in Swansea’s 28 matches this season under 2.5 goals were scored. We predict this will be a low scoring contest
