Free Match Tips from Punditfeed for Sheffield Wednesday vs Portsmouth

Sheffield Wednesday take on Portsmouth on the first matchday of League One on Saturday, 30 July. Both teams ended their pre-season campaign with a defeat.

Sheffield Wednesday to Win

Sheffield Wednesday lost the last three games in a row but they have a quite favourable record at their recent home attempts. The Owls had a streak of nine undefeated hosting games before the last defeat, winning seven of them. Portsmouth also held an unbeaten sequence before the last game but they won only two in the previous five duels. In the H2Hs, the Imps are also yet to lose in the last three meetings, winning two of them. So we predict Sheffield Wednesday will fancy their chances in front of their home fans.

Over 2.5 Goals

Four of the last five H2Hs at the home of Sheffield Wednesday featured high-scoring totals and we will be anticipating a similar conclusion to this game. The front line of the Imps lagged in the recent games, playing mostly away games, but they found the target eight times in the last five home attempts. Portsmouth also scored the same number of goals in the previous five outings.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Sheffield Wednesday didn’t score in the previous friendly game but they held a string of scoring in the consecutive nine games. On the other hand, Pompey have also scored in all of the last three away outings and will be confident as well over the poor defence the Imps held recently, leaking at least two goals in all of the last three games. Three of the previous four H2Hs also witnessed BTTS outcomes and we predict the same for this game.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Portsmouth Fixture Preview

Sheffield Wednesday

The Imps concluded their pre-season campaign terribly with successive three defeats, losing the last game by 4-1 against Wigan. Sheffield Wednesday were fourth on the points table in the last season of League One. The manager Darren Moore will enter the field with a completely healthy squad for this match.

Portsmouth

Pompey terminated their unbeaten streak in the last game with a defeat of 0-2 against Coventry. Portsmouth ended the last campaign of League One in tenth place with 73 points, equal to Bolton in the ninth position. Joe Morrell and two other players will be out of this game due to medical concerns.
