Birmingham vs Plymouth: top free betting tips
To terminate their winless sequence in EFL Championship, Plymouth Argyle face the challenge of Birmingham City on Saturday, 26 August. The Blues will be determined to continue their form of consecutive wins against Bristol and Leeds in the upcoming fixture.
Match result prediction: Birmingham to win
Birmingham City have won the last three consecutive games in EFL Championship and EFL Cup. On the other hand, Plymouth recorded only one victory in that course, together with one defeat and a draw. In the H2Hs, Birmingham has dominated the Pilgrims by winning three of the previous five meetings while ending one in a draw. Based on these numbers, we set the Blues as our favourites to take all three points in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Birmingham City have been consistent in front of the target and scored in the last four consecutive games. Defensively, the Blues have also been strong by keeping three successive clean sheets before this game. Birmingham have also kept three clean sheets in the previous four Championship outings against Plymouth Argyle. On the other hand, the Pilgrims have failed to find the back of the net in the only away fixture of this season against Watford. Based on the given facts, we predict only Birmingham to be able to score in this game.
Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Birmingham
Birmingham has not recorded a huge total of goals at the start of the EFL Championship and netted the ball four times in three matches. The Blues have also scored just one goal in each of the previous two league outings at St Andrew’s. On the other hand, Plymouth has also conceded just one goal in three of the previous five competitive fixtures away from Home Park. Hence, we predict only a narrow margin of 1-0 for Birmingham to collect three points in this encounter.
Birmingham vs Plymouth: form, recent games, and news
The Blues found their first away victory of this season with a 0-2 lead against Bristol City in the last game. Koji Miyoshi put Birmingham in the lead in the stoppage time of the first half while Lukas Jutkiewicz extended the lead in the 84th minute. The team’s preparation for the fourth round is slightly hindered by an injury-related absence of Keshi Anderson.
The Pilgrims scored an early equaliser against Premier League relegated side Southampton in the 51st minute through Ryan Hardie. However, Che Adams rattled the net for the Saints in stoppage time to claim all three points against Plymouth. Goalkeeper Michael Cooper is the only player to miss the upcoming game of Championship on the Plymouth squad due to a cruciate ligament rupture.
