Gillingham vs Sheffield United top free betting tips
Our Gillingham vs Sheffield United prediction is for this to be a fairly competitive contest despite this match being League Two vs Premier League. Sheffield United do have bigger worries at hand though as the club will be fighting to avoid relegation from the Premier League in the second half of the season.
Gillingham are in relatively good form in League Two with five wins from their previous nine matches, losing three times and drawing once. The Blades Premier League form is not too well though with six defeats, two draws and two victories from their previous ten matches.
Correct outcome prediction: Draw
Despite Gillingham being in the fourth tier and Sheffield United being in the first tier, we can see Gillingham causing an upset in this match. The FA Cup usually springs up an upset every year and we think this will be one of them. Gillingham is a hard team to play against with energetic players closing you down every time you get the ball and their determined defence ensuring their keeper is well-protected.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Sheffield United have scored in three of their previous five matches, failing to score against both Chelsea and Manchester City while Gillingham have kept three clean sheets in their previous four matches, but we can not see their defence keeping out the attackers of Sheffield United, especially for the full match.
Correct score prediction: 1-1 Draw
Something just tells us that this match will end 1-1 which would see the match go to extra time and then penalties if needs be. Gillingham are a good League Two side and are known for making a match difficult for their opponents, especially at home. Gillingham got past League One side Charlton in the previous round of the FA Cup. The Gills also managed to beat Southampton at home in the EFL Cup earlier in the season.
Gillingham vs Sheffield United: What do the fans think?
This Gills fan was not happy with his side's performance last time out
Will gladly take the three points, but it was a bit of a drab performance again. They played over an hour with 10 men, and it still looked like 0-0 would be the result. Definitely need reinforcements in January, but for now, I'll enjoy three more points on the board. UTG! 💙⚽️
