Prediction: Sheffield United vs Birmingham City

Prediction: Sheffield United to win 2-1

Best Odds: 15/2

Bookmaker: Betfair

Sheffield United and Birmingham City will face each other in the Championship this weekend. The match will be held at Bramall Lane and is scheduled to kick off at 8pm UK time on Saturday.

Sheffield United

Sheffield United will be looking to bounce straight back to the Premier League. The Blades got relegated from the Championship at the end of last season and actually finished at the foot of the standings.

The Blades have been preparing well for their campaign in the Championship. Slavisa Jokanovic, who guided Watford promotion to the Premier League in 2015, was appointed the new manager this summer.

Team News:

Centre-back Jack O’Connell is on the sidelines with a long-term injury. Enda Stevens is out as well, while Billy Sharp and Old McBurnie are doubtful.

Birmingham City

Birmingham City finished as low as 18th in the Championship table last season. The Blues are unlikely to be challenging for the playoffs or even mid-table this campaign, and there is a very good chance that they could end up fighting for survival in the second tier of English football yet again. 

Lee Bowyer was appointed the Birmingham manager in March 2021 and guided the team to safety pretty comfortably in the week. Bowyer will hope that his team survive in the Championship this season as well.

Team News:

Matija Sarkic, ơn loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, is likely to start in goal for Birmingham. Midfielder Ivan Sunjic is also available.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Sheffield United have won their last two matches.
  • Birmingham City have lost their last two matches.

Conclusion

Sheffield United will head into the match as favourites. The Blades have the better team and are also at home. A win for the Yorkshire club is the most likely outcome.

Prediction: Sheffield United to win 2-1

Best Odds: 15/2
