Sheffield Wednesday vs Man City Match Preview

Sheffield Wednesday have struggled for consistency and host Man City for their FA Cup clash on Wednesday evening with a disappointing 1-3 loss to Derby County behind them, where they conceded three goals in the first half-hour and Josh Windass’ second-half goal hardly feels like a great pick-me-up.

Owls have thus been denied a more serious top 6 chase when most of the rivals slipped up and saw a two-match unbeaten streak ended, where they beat Charlton Athletic (1-0) and held Birmingham to a thriller 3-3 draw. They have had troubles converting their chances at Hillsborough, though, and this will be more worrying – with just three goals netted in seven outings here.

Man City will be a very serious challenge too and while they’ve had more trouble with Aston Villa (1-2) than some may have expected, Pep Guardiola’s men come into the match just days after lifting the League Cup trophy and surely enjoy great team spirits at the moment.

Citizens thus extended a four-match winning streak across competitions, where they also beat West Ham (2-0) and Leicester (0-1) in Premier League as well as Real Madrid (1-2) in Champions League. They have been led by in-form Kevin De Bruyne while Rodri, Aguero, and Gabriel Jesus all added goals of their own along the way.

We do feel Man City prove a task too tough for Owls at this point and we’ll now back them to a confident win in Sheffield, going for an Away win to Nil at 21/20 with BetVictor and hoping for them to base such success on a tough defensive setup.

We don’t really see this as an entirely one-sided contest and we do feel Sheffield Wednesday will give the visitors a run for the money. With that in mind, we’re also sticking our necks out for few goals on the day and backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 19/10 with BetVictor.
