Swansea to Win

The guests are without a win in the league for thirteen games, so it's hardly surprising that they are in the relegation zone at the moment. Meanwhile, Swansea is far from being in great form, but they are safe in the middle of the standings.

Since Swansea has done better this season and they are hosting the match, our first Swansea vs Blackpool prediction is for them to win the game. After all, Swansea already beat Blackpool once this season, so we can see that happening again now.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

This season in Championship, Swansea averaged 2.93 goals per game, which is the highest average in the league. Meanwhile, Blackpool averaged 2.50 goals per game.

Despite that, we don't expect this to be another goalscoring game. After all, the last three head-to-head duels between Swansea and Blackpool have all gone under 2.5 total goals, which we can see happening on Wednesday too.

Swansea – Blackpool Preview: Recent Form, Team News, and Potential Lineups

If you want to know more about the teams ahead of their upcoming duel, let's take a better look at both of them now and what we expect Swansea vs Blackpool lineups to be:

Swansea

With two wins, one draw, and three losses in the last six games in Championship, Swansea has been far from their best and pretty inconsistent. However, that was pretty much the case with Swansea this entire season as the team is pretty much in the middle of the standings and pretty much evenly away from relegation zone and the playoffs.

When it comes to team news, Swansea is currently without Joel Latibeaudiere and Steven Benda through injuries.

Swansea Predicted Lineup:

Fisher – Cabango, Naughton, Darling – Sorinola – Grimes, Fulton, Manning – Cooper, Ntcham – Piroe

Blackpool

It's been too long since Blackpool managed to win a game in Championship for the last time as the team is currently on a winless streak of thirteen games in the league. Due to this, Blackpool is last in the standings right now, but on the bright side, they are far from over and they still have a chance to survive this season.

Blackpool also has six players on their injury list right now, which is also affecting their performances. On top of that, Gary Madine is currently suspended.

Blackpool Predicted Lineup:

Maxwell – Lyons, Connolly, Thorniley, Husband – Patino, Dougall – Bowler, Carey, Poveda-Ocampo – Yates

Championship Standings

Player to Watch: Joel Piroe

Since we do expect Swansea to win this match, we decided to go with Joel Piroe as our player to watch in this duel against Blackpool as he is the biggest offensive threat in Swansea's team.

After all, Piroe managed to score eleven goals in Championship so far in 27 appearances for Swansea, so Blackpool will have to think about ways to stop him first, before focusing on any other players.
