Sheff Wed vs Swansea: Owls no match for Swans
Odds: Sheffield Wednesday 21/10, Draw 23/10, Swansea 5/4
Kick Off: 1230, 17/02/2018
TV: BT Sport 2
Swansea can give manager Carlos Carvalhal a winning return to former club Sheffield Wednesday, having not been beaten on the road since the Portuguese’s appointment.
The Swans have won one and drawn four on the road following Carvalhal’s arrival, and while Wednesday have also drawn five of their last nine, manager Jos Luhukay has fielded weakened sides in this competition against Carlisle and Reading.
A Look At Sheffield Wednesday’s Betting Odds
Since appointing Luhukay as Carvalhal’s replacement, Wednesday had only won twice – both in the FA Cup – prior to their midweek victory over Derby.
League Two Carlisle and fellow strugglers Reading are not sides of Swansea’s calibre and although beating the Rams was impressive, we need more convincing that the Owls have what it takes to knock out Premier League opposition.
They have failed to score in six of their last 11 outings and for that reason, we’re taking 5/2 for Swansea to win to nil.
A Look At Swansea’s Betting Odds
Swansea have required a replay in the two previous rounds, having been held by Wolves and Notts County before getting the job done at the Liberty Stadium.
County were routed 8-1 in south Wales and with Carvalhal naming strong line-ups throughout the competition to date, they should have enough to progress at the first time of asking.
Swansea have scored in all of their last eight games but on five of those occasions notched only once.
Attacking threats Wilfried Bony and Renato Sanches are also injured, so a 1-0 away win at 6/1 makes plenty of appeal.
