Birmingham City will welcome Sheffield United to St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium for a matchday 30 fixture in England Championship. The last meeting on 7th August 2021 ended in a Birmingham City 1-0 win. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Birmingham City has won 3 matches, and Sheffield United triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 2.14 goals, while both teams score 57% of the time.
Birmingham City’s latest fixture against Derby County ended in an away 2-2 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Birmingham City scored in both halves in the 7th and 56th minute.
Sheffield United’s previous game in the competition versus Peterborough United ended in an away 2-0 win. Sheffield United was comfortable on the ball for most of the game and constantly avoided the press. Sheffield United was pretty good in both halves and scored in the 54th and 81st minute.
Since the start of the season, Birmingham City is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 14 games on home soil. Blues’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 36% of home games.
Sheffield United has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Sheffield United wins 1.47 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Sheffield United kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Birmingham City has won just 36% of home games. On average they score 1.21 goals and concede 1.36 per game. Sheffield United won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Birmingham City wins on average 1.36 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Sheffield United. My prediction is Sheffield United to win.
