Survival showdown on final day

This weekend’s biggest Championship clash comes at Pride Park, as Derby and Sheffield Wednesday battle for their lives. These two sides sit in the bottom four, with at least one of them getting relegated at full-time.

While that kind of showdown excites neutrals, the pressure of the game doesn’t look likely to produce a thriller. The Rams have seen under 2.5 goals land in 82% of their home matches this season, with Wayne Rooney’s men capable of digging in and producing a dogged defensive display.

Sheffield Wednesday seem like the perfect side to keep at bay, as the Owls have scored just 0.68 goals per away game. They’ve seen under 2.5 goals in 64% of their outings this term and we don’t expect this game to be any different.

We think there’s good value on offer on under 2.5 goals given both sides lack cutting edge going forward and neither will want to give an inch considering the stakes. On top of that, we’re backing Derby to win 1-0 against a Wednesday side who have lost their last league game of the season in five of the last seven seasons.
