- Swansea City have lost just once in their last five games and sit in third place.
- Watford have an identical record but sit three points behind their opponents this weekend.
- Swansea have averaged just over a goal a game in that time.
- Watford have scored five goals in their last five games but have only scored six away from home all season.
Sides set for stalemate in Swansea
Another really closely matched contest happens in the Championship this weekend with third placed, Swansea City hosting fifth placed, Watford.
The hosts have won 10 points from a possible 15 and are just three points off the top of the table as the promotion race hots up. Watford can match that record with three wins and a draw in their last five games, a record that means they maintain their standing int the playoff places.
Another metric by which these sides are evenly matched is in front of goal. Swansea have six goals in their last five games over but only five in five at home whilst Watford have only scored six goals away from home all season. Goals have been a little tricky for both sides to come across in recent weeks but they have managed to find results despite this.
This weekend, we can see the goal scoring woes continue for both sides as they cancel each other out in what looks to be a close encounter. The 2.5 goal line hasn’t been beaten in either of these sides last five games and we’re backing the same to happen this weekend with the under line looking like the most value.
Indeed we can’t see many goals in this contest at all and we’re backing this match to finish goalless with a 0-0 draw looking like loads of value.
