Match: Sheffield Wednesday vs. Brighton & Hove Albion Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Friday, 13 May, 2016
Start time: 19:45 UK
Sheffield Wednesday hosts Brighton in the first game of semi-finals in promotion play-offs in Championship. The match is on Friday from 19:45 UK at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield.
The home team played a decent level of performance through most of the campaign, but at some point collapsed and lost any chance of direct promotion. However, they were able to fight for its position in the area of the playoffs.
This explains the decline in team performance in the last month and recorded only one win in the last five league matches.
But surely The Owls have preserved the best of themselves for at least the upcoming two games, which can give meaning to their season.
Brighton until recently was in the battle for direct promotion but failed in the most important moment. Progressive team’s goalkeeper was very close to that to succeed in their enterprise. His foolish mistake in the penultimate round, resulting in the loss of whole 2 points at home against Derby County gave an instant impact on the names at the top of the ranking and Burnley and Middlesbrough took advantage of the situation.
Sheffield Wednesday did not have as good a chance to enter in Premier League, so, in any case, will approach quite cautious about this match. Brighton will retaliate in this first match will see a tactical game with few goals scored.
