This Friday night’s Championship game between Coventry City and Birmingham City is shaping up to be closely contested.
Coventry City, currently sitting 17th in the league with 22 points, will be looking to bounce back from their recent 2-1 defeat to Ipswich Town.
Despite the loss, Coventry has had a strong presence at home, losing only one of their league matches on their turf this season.
Birmingham City, just one point ahead of Coventry and placed 15th, had a goalless draw against Rotherham United in their last game.
They have struggled to maintain consistency, with just one win in their previous eight matches. Additionally, Birmingham City has been particularly weak in away games, suffering seven consecutive losses on the road.
The head-to-head record between these two teams shows a slight edge for Birmingham City, with 24 wins compared to Coventry’s 19 out of their 63 encounters.
However, Coventry has been undefeated in their last six matches against Birmingham since 2020.
Tip & Prediction
Given the current form and past performances, predictions and betting tips suggest a Coventry City win with a scoreline of 1-0. The game is expected to be a low-scoring affair, with fewer than 2.5 goals aligning with the trend observed in recent encounters between these two teams, where seven of the last eight matches have produced fewer than 2.5 goals.
