SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY v BIRMINGHAM – ENGLAND CHAMPIONSHIP
December 26 2015, Hillsborough, 15:00 GMT +0
Sheffield is one of the best teams in Championship at the moment, and they are proving that with every win. It’s really hard to beat the Owls at home, as they managed to be unbeaten in front of their home fans in the last 9 games. One of them winning against Arsenal in Carling Cup.
Even though the Owls will be missing some of the players, the team has enough good players to replace the missing players. Sheffield will be missing Tom Lees, Michael Turner and Vincent Sasso in the back and Alex Lopez , Marco Matias and Felipe Melo in the middle. But as I said those “holes” will be easily fixed by coach Carvalhal.
Birmingham has not convinced us with his form lately. They started off well but that run ended quickly. Now they managed to get only 9 points in the last 10 games. They are coming from a win against Cardiff, whey they were awarded a questionable penalty, and that was enough for Birmingham to win with 1:0.
Looking at the form of the guests, and impressive home record from the hosts it’s an easy pick, so my prediction won’t surprise you.
Prediction: Sheffield Wednesday -0.5
Odds: 2.00 PINNACLE
