Swansea – Sheffield
Swansea City hosts Sheffield Wednesday in a replay match from the 5th round of the FA Cup. Let’s have a look at this game and the Liberty Stadium. We will give you our winning soccer predictions for it.
This clash came to replay after a 0-0 draw at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield on February 17. Both teams had some chances to score a winning goal, but after all they left everything for a second game in Swansea. And this is giving the Swans a serious advantage in the fight for a 1/4-finals qualification.
Swansea are currently 18th in the Premier League standings with 27 points. Their situation looked desperate, but their Portuguese manager Carlos Carvalhal successfully inspired them to record some very important wins. And although the Welsh team is still positioned in the relegation zone of the Premier League, now Swansea have much bigger chances to survive. They are on par with the 17th Crystal Palace.
In terms of current form, we should note that the Swans won three of their last five matches in the Premier League – against Liverpool, Arsenal and Burnley. In their last game they suffered 1-4 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion, but it doesn’t mean that their performance lately is not good.
Sheffield Wednesday on the other hand are currently 17th in the Championship standings. As it seems now, they will wait for another year before once again trying to win a promotion to the Prem. At this moment Wednesday have 37 points won and a record of 8 wins, 13 draws and 13 losses.
It’s clear that the Premier League team is a strong favourite here, especially on home ground. Wednesday had their chance, but they blew it. Can they perform strong now away from home?
