Sheffield Wednesday v Derby
The home team Sheffield take on the visiting side Derby County in a match in the 23rd round of the English Football League Championship competition at the historically significant Hillsborough Stadium in Owlerton, a north-western suburb of Sheffield, tomorrow, Friday. Currently, the home team, Sheffield are ranked in the 23rd position of the league table with 13 points to their name. At the same time, the visiting side Derby County are perched just one spot above them in the same standings with 16 points inside.
There have been 16 games recorded between the two teams in the past, out of whiich the home team Sheffield Wednesday have won two. The visiting side Derby County have been victorious on seven occasions while the rest of the seven matches were played out as drawn encounters between the two teams. When the two sides last met, in February earlier this year, the visiting side Derby County had prevailed over the home team Sheffield Wednesday. I fancy the visitors to prevail in this match again tomorrow.
Prediction: Derby win
Al Ittifaq v Al Wahda
Goals could be on the cards as Al Ittigaq welcomes Al Wahda witth both sides in good form in recently.
Hosts Al Ittifaq comes into this match unbeaten in their last 5 league outings, picking up a couple of draws before 3 successive wins against Damac, Al Faisaly and most recently, against Al Quadisya. Al Ittifaq scored 12 goals in those 5 unbeaten matches.
Al Ittifaq is hugely inconsistent at home, winning 10 and losing 10 of their last 20 home league matches. They have lost 3 of their last 5 at home more recently, leaving them 4th in the division, 6 points adrift of league leaders Al Hilal.
Visiting Al Wahda come into this fixture also in good form but also with problems of consistency.
While the visitors have managed to win 4 of their last 5 league matches, they too have a hit or miss record, winning 8 and losing 8 of their last 16 league matches. I fancy both teams to score in this match with the home side taking the whole package.
Prediction: Home win and both teams to score
