[Championship]: Preview of the 43rd round.
Hello! Well, I hope the English clubs have not left anyone indifferent after this eurocup week. The English Premier League regains its lost positions in eurocups, four English clubs in the semifinals of the Champions League and the Europa League, this has not happened for a long time. Well, today we will again follow the English football, today the Championship comes into play.
There are very few matches left to finish, and those who have not yet completed their task in the league will do their best to achieve this. One such team is Sheffield United, which today will play against Nottingham Forest. The “blades” after two misfires in a row lost the second line, and even moved away from it by a distance of three points, if they are still going to win the fight for second place, then today a more suitable opponent cannot be found for them. And that's why. “Foresters” have long been eliminated from the struggle for the playoffs, moreover, this team absolutely does not know how to play away this season, and in addition in recent matches, the game in defense of the team absolutely does not go well. United have also recently experienced problems in both attack and defense. Goals United create with great difficulty, so also disqualification in the last round earned John Egan. In general, United is simply obliged to take three points today, Nottingham is no longer a rival to almost any Champions team, especially at a party. Another bet for this match can be considered in the form of Total less than 3, something tells me that there will not be many goals here.
Another team that did not fulfill its task for the season 100% is West Bromwich Albion. Theoretically, the "Throstles" can still climb to the second line with certain alignments. This could become a reality if there were at least some kind of stability in a team game. Two defeats in a row actually left the team to fight for the Premier League in the playoffs. However, a convincing victory over Preston in the last round will probably give the team new strength. After the change of coach, the game at home is the main trump card of the “Throstles” and today Hull will come to visit them, who doesn’t really like to play at a party. In the last five away games, Hull won only one meeting with Ipswich, who has already said goodbye to the Championship. But with the attacking teams "tigers" to play much easier, you can not build a game of defense, which Hull is not a strong link. In this match, I still expect that West Brom will at least not lose, and maybe win. It is possible that both teams will be able to exchange goals scored.
Leeds United, who won second place in the last round, will be forced to defend him in the match with Wigan Athletic in this round. “Latiks” in the last round almost defeated the leader, however it was a home game, while their situation was worse. In the last ten guest matches, the Latiks have not won any, but only in two games the team left the field without scoring a goal. In today's match it will be extremely difficult to do. Leeds defense in the last round did not falter under the onslaught of Sheffield Wednesday, while creating a single moment in the second half, they scored the winning goal. Victories are hard for Leeds lately, but they often take three points “in class”. Leeds victory in this match seems to be a logical outcome, you can also try a Total less than 3.5 bet.
In the final match of the tour Norwich City will play with Sheffield Wednesday. Norwich added himself problems at the finish of the season by tied two matches with outsiders fighting for survival. In the last matches, the defense of the canaries caused many problems to the team because of what Norwich lost most of its advantage. But his today's opponent is not so strong in the attack, and the only thing that the “owls” can oppose to the leader is a strong defense. In this match, we may also not see a large number of goals scored. Norwich needs to win today, which means you can count on at least one goal from the Canaries.
In addition to these matches, it will also be interesting today to take a look at the match Birmingham - Derby County. The “rams” at a party are weak, and the “blue ones” are now dangerous for any opponent. Options with “both score” and 1X are quite viable. On a visit to Bolton, who has already come to terms with the departure to the League One, Aston Villa will arrive, winning eight consecutive victories. It seems that today will be the ninth, especially considering that the next contenders of the Villa will be much more serious.
