Ipswich Town vs. Sheffield Wednesday Match Analysis and Prediction

The English Championship sides Ipswich Town and Sheffield Wednesday will face off on 2nd February 2019. The fixture which is scheduled to start at 15.00GMT at Portman Road will be pitying number 24 against number 17. Sheffield Wednesday is most likely to win during this fixture.

Ipswich Town has been doing dismally in their previous matches putting them at number last in the English Championship table standings. This puts them in a precarious position with the possibility of getting relegated by the end of the season. Going forward, if they do not improve, their place in the Championships is no more. This fixture presents them with a chance to at least redeem their face in front of their fans. It is a shame that in their last eight matches this season; they have lost 6 of them, won one and drawn one. In their first leg, this season Ipswich had to play one man down having secured a red card. They lost 2-1.

Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, is not doing very well either but is relatively better compared to their opponent. At number seventeen, their place in the championships is not very much under threat but not very safe either. In their eight latest all matches this season, it has won 3 lost 2 and drawn thrice.

This is a tough match, especially for Ipswich Town. Due to their losing expertise, most people don’t expect them to win in this fixture. However, due to their injured ego, they can pull an unexpected surprise on Sheffield Wednesday and force even a draw or even win.

Odds and Prediction

Things have been terrible for Ipswich and seemingly not likely to change over the weekend. Nothing significant has improved with them which may make them better than they have been previously. The best bet they can have is force a draw but a win for them is very doubtful. Sheffield Wednesday on the other seems to be trying and this seems as a better opportunity to improve on their current position against the weaker opponent. Our best bet for the match is for Sheffield Wednesday to win 2-1.
