Hull City vs Birmingham City: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 36

Historied teams, different goals but 90 minutes to face each other on the field!

While being on the different ends of the table, Hull City and Birmingham City will clash in Hull in what is expected to be a tightly contested battle. Match will begin at 8:45pm CET on Tuesday, March 5.

Hull City

After cycling between the Premier League, EFL Championship and League One in recent years, Hull City has returned to the Championship and the EPL playoffs race.

A breath of fresh air for the fans, as the Tigers struggled during the last two seasons, Hull City is currently sitting in sixth, one point above Norwich City. However, with only one home victory in the calendar 2024, it might be a cause for concern even before the upcoming game begins.

Birmingham City

Winning the EFL Cup but being relegated from the Premier League in 2011 started a chain of seasons in the Championship for Birmingham City - one, which might continue after the end of this season.

Not because Blues are going for the Premier League, but because they can try and avoid being relegated despite an awful start, which led to a manager sacking. Two losses in a row, including a «3-4» thriller against Southampton dropped Birmingham City to the 20th, tied with three other teams, so a visit northeast looms large.

Prediction ⚽️

Teams faced each other in the league, where Hull City won on the road in the first round, and in FA Cup, where Birmingham City held on to an overall series win.

While the Tigers have only won once at home in 2024, Blues have done the same on the road, so we will put our chips on the visitors to cover the (+1) spread with 1.60 odds 🔥.
