Wigan Athletic vs Swansea City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture features two sides next to each other (seventh and eighth) in the table and is live on Sky Sports (behind the red button).  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Wigan are looking to bounce back after going down 1-0 on the road to Norwich at the weekend. The Latics can have few complaints about the result as the Canaries created the better chances.

Swansea put to an end a three-game winless run with a comfortable 3-0 home victory over QPR.  Courtney Baker-Richardson, Jay Fulton and Connor Roberts weighed in with one each in a deserved victory for the Welsh outfit.

These two sides were two divisions apart last season so you have to go back to the 2012/13 season for their last meetings.  It is hard to reach much into the head-to-heads then but for what it is worth the Swans have won three straight.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to oppose a strong home side in Wigan given they have lost two just league home fixtures in the last year and a half. Swansea are tailor made though to play on the road so I would not be backing against them either.

Seven of the ten the Welsh outfit have played this season have been level going into the break and this looks an angle into the game with the second 45 minutes also most likely to be the highest scoring half.

Wigan Athletic Preview

The Latics have been a mixed bag of late with three victories and three defeats from their last six. They sit eighth in the table with 16th points and have only drawn one of their ten this season.

At the DW Stadium, they have been strong this season winning four, drawing one and losing none of their five. Nick Powell has netted in three of his five league appearances at his own ground.

Wigan matches produce the 14th highest amount of goals with an average of 2.6 per fixture played.  Five of their ten have gone over 2.5 goals and five under 2.5 goals while none have finished goalless.

Wigan Athletic Team News

Gavin Massey (hamstring) is out until January while Daniel Burn (foot), James Vaughan and Will Grigg (both knock) are doubts.

Swansea City Preview

The Welsh outfit have now lost just one of their last five and two for the season as they have made a decent start to the campaign. They sit seventh in the table with 16 points though the expected goals data believes this is false and has them 21st.

Away from the Liberty Stadium, they have made a decent start with two victories, two draws and just one defeat. Just one of their last four on the road have seen both teams score and two of them have ended goalless.

Swansea are not the greatest side for neutrals as they rank 23rd in the goals produced table with an average of just 1.6 per fixture.  Six of the ten they have played this season have gone under 1.5 goals.

Swansea City Team News

Joel Asoro (ankle) and Jefferson Montero (thigh) are doubts ahead of this fixture.
