On December 19, the DW Stadium (Wigan) will host a match of the 23rd round of the Championship of England, in which Wigan will compete with Sheffield United. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.

Wigan

We remember the club for its performance in the Premier League. It used to be in the elite pretty long enough, that time was even rewarded with victory in the FA Cup. But it was the last weighty word of the team that almost immediately was knocked out of the Premier League. And since then, it has had no chances to come back, moreover, at the moment it is considered to be a newcomer to the Championship. And despite winning League One last season, the struggle for survival was hard enough and cannot be selected on the asset. As a result, “the Latics”, as expected, replaced their coach. Kolo Toure, known in the past as a very strong Ivorian centre back, was chosen to be a new coach. He started with, not brilliant but quite positive, a 1-1 score against Millwall in an away match. The only thing they need now is to win to get out of the relegation zone.

Sheffield United

The team was in League One not so long ago. After Chris Wilder taking the helm, it dramatically stepped up the game – the team “climbed” into the Premier League and even spent their impressive first season there. This fairy tale ended in a pretty trite way: a hopeless elimination after the second season. However, right now, “the Blades” looks like a serious candidate for promotion. Last season the team entered the play-off zone under the rule of Heckingbottom but lost the chance in the games with Nottingham Forest. Now they’ve got one more chance to break into the Premier League without any play-offs. Of course, that is too early to talk about the results. Nevertheless, December managed to start with a 1-0 win against Huddersfield, and this is the 5th victory in the last 6 rounds.

The statistics of head-to-head matches

Sheffield United won both matches in the Championship in the 2018/2019 season. The teams haven’t met in the same division since then yet.

Predictions

Bookmakers do not believe that Kolo Toure will help Wigan take points in the match with such a strong opponent. Thus, we recommend betting that in this match the victory will go to “the Blades” who are more than motivated by the struggle for leadership (odd: 2.05).
