Birmingham vs Rotherham predictions and top betting tips

Rotherham United who currently sits twenty-third in the Championship travels to Birmingham to face sixteenth-placed Birmingham City in another match from the Championship. Birmingham has collected just four points from their previous five matches while Rotherham has collected just three points in that time.

Match result prediction: Birmingham City to Win

For our first prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Birmingham will earn all three points which would give manager Wayne Rooney just his second win in charge of the midlands-based side. Birmingham started the season in excellent form under previous manager John Eustace but has somewhat stumbled since sacking John and replacing him with Wayne Rooney. However, Birmingham is coming up against a Rotherham side who has just two wins all season with the most recent win coming in a 2-0 victory over Coventry, six games ago.

Total goals prediction: Under 1.5 Goals

For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that the total number of goals in this match will be 1.5 or less. Rotherham has conceded ten times in their previous three matches but we can see this match being a lot closer than their previous ones have been. Birmingham will be desperate to win this match against a weak Rotherham side but we can not see them putting too many goals past Rotherham. Rotherham is usually defensively sound and has one of the best goalkeepers in the division in their team Viktor Johansson. Birmingham does tend to be involved in a lot of goals with with twenty-one goals in their previous five matches, thirteen of those were conceded by Birmingham.

Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Birmingham City

For our third and final prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that this match will finish with Birmingham earning a 1-0 victory over lowly Rotherham United. Birmingham is more than capable of scoring and conceding but coming up against this Rotherham side will be a completely different test. Birmingham should dominate the ball and the majority of the chances but they are coming up against one of the division's best goalkeepers who will be determined to help his Rotherham side earn just their third win of the season. Birmingham will be happy to just grab a goal and keep things as they are to not open themselves up to a potential counterattack from a somewhat quick Rotherham side. Rotherham is more than happy to sit back and capitalize as and when they get the chance, as proven in their 1-1 draw vs Leeds United just a couple of weeks ago.
