Sheffield United vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction 12 January 2018

Tournament: Football League Championship
Location: Barmall Lane Stadium
Match date: 12.01.2018 at 19:45

On January 12th 2018 at 19:45 at the Barmall Lane in Sheffield in the upcoming match of the 27th game week of the English Football League Championship the local Sheffield United are playing against their guests and neighbours Sheffield Wednesday.

In the previous season Sheffield United made it to the Championship and they started the season rather well and by the middle of the season they managed to stay among the favorites of the league. Anyway, in their latest matches they were rather unstable and only gained five points of 15 possible in the last five games played. In those games they lost to Preston and Bolton, outplayed Sunderland and drew Aston Villa and Derby County.

As for Sheffield Wednesday, they finished the previous season in the promotion play-offs zone and yet they didn’t manage to fulfill their task. It seems to have broken them in the end and in the current season they obviously don’t have that same motivation. As a result, after 26 games played since the start of the championship Sheffield Wednesday only gained 30 points with 30:34 goal difference which only lets them take the 16th position in the table of the league.

The Sheffield Derby is considered to be one of the most interesting ones in the English football where the teams have already played 127 games against each other. United have a slight advantage in those matches, in fact, as they won 45 times while Wednesday won 42 times. United are more motivated in the current season, they are in better conditions and they are playing at home this time. That’s why it seems to us that the hosts are much more likely to win.
