Reason For Walsall vs Sheffield Wednesday Predictions

  • Over 2.5 goals were registered in 100% of Wednesday’s last six away games.
  • Sheffield Wednesday kept one clean sheet in their last 10 away matches.
  • Over 2.5 goals hit the net in six of Walsall’s last seven home fixtures.

Exciting cup contest anticipated

After a dismal finish to the 2019/20 season that saw Sheffield Wednesday win just three of their final 19 matches, the Owls will be hoping to get the fresh campaign off to a more positive start with a win at League Two Walsall in the first round of the Carabao Cup this week.

Walsall, who finished mid-table in the third-tier last term, were dumped out in the opening round in two of their last league cup adventures, and though the Saddlers will fancy their chances of giving Wednesday a good game in the West Midlands, we expect them to ultimately fall short.

Wednesday’s record of conceding in nine of their last 10 away assignments suggests a Walsall should have chances to impact the scoresheet on Saturday however, though the Owls’ superior quality should eventually allow them to outscore their lower league hosts.

Over 2.5 goals were registered in 100% of Wednesday’s last six away tussles, and we’re tipping their latest test at Walsall to follow suit, while our correct score prediction points towards a 2-1 away victory.

The Championship side averaged 2.25 goals per 90 minutes across their last quartet of away games, and they possess enough firepower to maintain that average at Walsall’s expense.
