Reasons Birmingham City vs Sheffield Wednesday Tip
Birmingham City was one of the clubs projected to fight for the Premiership. At the moment it seems that they’re going to be fighting to stay in the Championship. On the other hand, Sheffield Wednesday is looking solid at the moment, but the recent loss in the city derby was pretty painful for the Owls. We are going to see whether do they have the strength to bounce back and continue with solid performances.
Birmingham City Preview
The Blues from St Andrew’s decided to sack manager Harry Redknapp but not team significantly changed. Yes, they did snap 6 game losing streak, but overall Lee Carsley didn’t have much time to make some enormous improvements. They are still without a victory following 8 straight events, and slowly slipping towards the last place in the Championship. With 5 goals in 9 games, they are the second-worst team in the league regarding efficiency, and it is the biggest problem for this assembly. 4 of 5 last contests ended with under 2.5 goals, and in all those matches Birmingham City allowed at least one goal.
Sheffield Wednesday Preview
The Owls lost the steel derby 2-4, although they had a chance to come back one moment and completely turn the game around. After four games this was the first defeat they suffered, overall the second in the past 10 matches. During that period, we saw both teams to score on the 9 occasions which proves that Wednesday likes to play open football. They have conceded each time in the past 6 games, and 4 went above 2.5 goals. The guests will be looking to reach at least one point and to avoid entering some small crisis.

Birmingham City vs Sheffield Wednesday Predictions and Betting Tips
This is going to be a crucial match for Lee Carsley and his managerial role at Birmingham City. If the Blues continue to look pale and if they lose this game, things are not going to change when comparing them to the Harry Redknapp period. So we expect an attack from the hosts right from the start. The offensive approach will bring some goals, but it is not going to be a high-scoring affair. A moderate number between two and three is our first suggestion.
Both teams to score will be the second one. When we take into consideration, everything said in the previous text there are excellent chances for this to happen. Both sides do not have some extraordinary defenses, and lately, they rarely keep their net intact.
