Birmingham vs Sheffield Utd – Prediction, and Match Preview
Birmingham vs Sheffield Utd – On Monday afternoon, Sheffield United will play Birmingham City in Matchday No. 46 at St Andrew’s Stadium to round off a very successful campaign.
Thanks to a fantastic season and a deserved second-place result, the Blades will rejoin the Premier League. For Paul Heckingbottom and his team, the FA Cup semifinal and qualification make for a very demanding season.
As Sheffield United’s four-game winning streak in the league came to an end with a 1-0 loss at the John Smith’s Stadium on Thursday night, the manager rested some of his key players.
However, the Blades will have a wonderful opportunity to end this season on a high if they can defeat Birmingham, who also don’t have much at stake on this last day. The Blues will place last in the rankings, but they will be content just to survive at this level.
They have lost three of their last four games going into the final day match, and they haven’t scored in either of their last two losses to teams like Blackpool and Coventry.
Birmingham vs Sheffield Utd – Betting Analysis
Up to five of their previous seven meetings in head-to-head contests, including this season’s 1-1 draw at Bramall Lane in October of last year, had no clear victor.
Only 11 of Sheffield United’s previous 40 matches against the Blues were victories at St Andrew’s, giving them a mediocre record there. In the last seven head-to-head matches between these rivals, all but two of them finished with fewer than three goals scored.
The game may not matter to either team, but Sheffield United has the higher quality team, thus we favor the 1.90 odds on the away team to win here.
We will also back the visitors to maintain a clean sheet at the 2.62 odds because the Blades have been outstanding defensively throughout the entire season and because Birmingham did not score in the previous two games.
