Birmingham City hosts Swansea City in round 42 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Wednesday, July 8th at St. Andrew's Stadium (Birmingham)
The hosts looked decent against Fulham and West Bromwich. Birmingham is more successful in matches with the leaders than with the outsiders, but it seems that the Blues openly finish the season. There will be a new coach and new players in the new championship, and the main thing is that the team of Clotet is not fighting for survival. However, it cannot win for ten games in a row.

Swansea is unlikely to fight for the playoff zone since you won’t get far on drawn results, and the Swans do not like to take risks. Yes, the visitors lose rarely, but they don't win often either. Matches on a foreign pitch are not an advantage of the team. It managed to win in only one out 13 meetings, but Swansea will probably try to compete with an unmotivated opponent. Swansea is unlikely to lose, but it definitely does not know how to achieve its goal and to play from a position of strength. Cooper's pragmatic football is not fun.
Birmingham is very weak in playing attack first. Swansea also prefer defensive football. No one will run headlong. The low-scoring nature of the upcoming match is predictable. The visitors need victory, but they will not allow themselves to take risks even in this case. In the first-round match, Swansea defeated Birmingham with a score of 3-0, but this time it will try not to lose in the first place.
Prediction for the match: Swansea to win with +0.5 handicap
