Sheffield Utd to Win

While Sheffield Utd is trying to stay in second place and secure direct promotion to Premier League, Wigan is currently last in the standings and they need points from this game if they want to have a chance to avoid relegation.

So, both teams are coming into this match with strong motives, but the home team is simply way ahead in terms of quality. So, our first Sheffield Utd vs Wigan prediction is for the home team to win the game.

Over 2.5 Goals

We saw at least three goals in four of the last five head-to-head meetings between these teams, so our second Sheffield Utd vs Wigan prediction is for the game to go over 2.5 total goals.

That being said, Sheffield Utd averaged 2.42 goals per game and Wigan averaged 2.38 goals per game in the league this season, but the h2h history suggest we should see a high-scoring game.

Sheffield Utd – Wigan Preview: Latest News, Form, and Possible Lineups

You can find out latest information about both teams ahead of their duel here, including the probable Sheffield Utd vs Wigan lineups:

Sheffield Utd

Sheffield United remains second in the standings, after four wins in the last six games, which would secure them direct promotion to Premier League. However, with seven games left in the season, they still aren't certainly earned the promotion as few teams are trying to catch up with them, so they need to keep their good run going.

Meanwhile, Ben Osborn, R. Norrington-Davies, Enda Stevens, Rhian Brewster, and Jack O'Connell are currently out with injuries.

Sheffield Utd Predicted Lineup:

Foderingham – Ahmedhodzic, Egan, Robinson – Baldock, Berge, Doyle, McAtee, Lowe – McBurnie, Ndiaye

Wigan

After eight games without a win, Wigan finally broke this streak in the last round by beating QPR. However, the team remains in the last place in the standings and five points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone. So, there is still a chance for Wigan, but they need to go on a great run to end the season to have any hope of survival.

When it comes to team news, Wigan will miss injured Martin Kelly, Danel Sinani, and Jason Kerr in this game.

Wigan Predicted Lineup:

Amos – Rekik, Caulker, Nyambe, Darikwa, Power, Naylor, McClean – Tiehi – Sinani, Keane

Player to Watch: Iliman Ndiaye

We said that we expect Sheffield Utd to win this match, so our player to watch comes from the home team and it is their young Senegalese winger Iliman Ndiaye.

After all, Ndiaye has been one of the teams top performers with with eleven goals and seven assists. So, Wigan should be wary of this guy in their upcoming duel against Sheffield United.
