Birmingham City vs Swansea City Tips and Prediction
Birmingham would have been unquestionably the last team most people would have chosen to break Preston’s long-standing streak of clean sheets given their struggles in front of goal.
However, given that this is the Championship, anything is possible. As a result, Maxime Colin scored the game’s lone goal in the 16th minute.
Such has been Blues’ poor start that they have only moved outside of the relegation zone on goal difference, but John Eustace will now feel that they have momentum on their side.
Scott Hogan is the only player to have more than one goal or assist in the Championship during Birmingham’s first eight games, highlighting their lack of ruthlessness in the last third.
However, their defensive efforts are keeping them in games, and they will have faith that they can defeat a Swansea team in a comparable circumstance.
Joel Piroe, another player whose departure had been strongly rumored this summer, has stepped up in the last two games to assist the Swans in earning four significant points.
Even though the Dutchman hasn’t yet duplicated his form from 2021–22, he has shown signals that he is close by scoring in his last three games.
To go further away from the bottom three, Russell Martin’s club will need to put in a team effort, and they will be looking to build on their record of only one road loss in their first four league games.
After a rocky start to the season, both clubs ought to be striving to earn all three points.
They will all recognize the value of a draw, though, and a low-scoring contest seems to be the most likely result.
