Birmingham City

Birmingham City will be unhappy after failing to capitalize on their last two matches, which were considered easy fixtures. The Blues drew 2-2 with both Peterborough and Derby County, two teams struggling in the relegation zone. Birmingham know that Sheffield United are a tougher opponent with potential to take all 3 points.

Birmingham’s defense is very weak at the moment. They have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 fixtures in all competitions, and 3 of their last 4 league games saw them ship 2 or more goals in the match. If the hosts are to take something from this game, Coach Lee Bowyer needs to find ways of making the team defend better.

Sheffield United

Sheffield United are coming into this game following back-to-back wins against Luton Town and Peterborough United to make it an unbeaten run of 3 games and 7 points from a possible 9. The Blades also managed to keep clean sheets in the last 2 games that they won. Veteran striker Billy Sharp scored his 122nd Championship goal to break the division record in the 2-0 win over Peterborough.

Sheffield are just 6 points off 6th place, the cut-off for the play-offs. Interestingly, they have at least 2 games in hand over all the teams in the top 6 except one. Coach Paul Heckingbottom knows there are crucial fixtures coming up ahead, including Huddersfield Town and West Bromwich Albion, currently in 5th and 6th place respectively. A win here will be a major boost to Sheffield United’s playoffs hopes.

Our betting tip

Birmingham City have managed only 1 win in their last 10 games. This is primarily due to a poor defense that was not able to keep a clean sheet in any of these games. The attack, in contrast, has been quite good in recent games. They have scored in each of their last 5 matches, and scored 2 goals in each of their last 4 matches.

Sheffield United have similarly scored 2 goals in each of their last 3 matches, but at least they kept clean sheets in the last 2. The Blades maybe in a stronger position going into this match, but they have not won against Birmingham in the last 5 head-to-head meetings (D3 L2). According to our betting strategies page, the recent stats from the two teams point to a high likelihood of both teams finding the back of the net in this match.
