Watford vs Swansea City: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 36

With the relegation zone nearby, both squads have to earn points on Wednesday.

With neither team being totally safe from the relegations, Watford will host Swansea City at the Vicarage Road in Week 36. Match will begin on Wednesday, March 6, at 8:45pm CET.

Watford

A disastrous February has put halt to the Hornets’ plans of sneaking into the playoffs, as now it is all about keeping their spot in the EFL Championship and trying again next year.

A loss at The Den to Millwall put Watford at 44 points, only six away from a dangerous relegation zone and with a tough schedule ahead, the team has to get back on track soon to avoid serious troubles in the middle of spring.

Swansea City

The Welsh club made history in 2011, becoming the first team from the country to play in the top flight. The Swans lasted in the EPL for seven seasons before going back to the Championship in 2018 and have not been back since.

Swansea was close twice, losing to Brentford in the playoffs both times, but tumbled down to the bottom half of the table this season. Two victories in a row against Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers eased the situation, but the Welsh team is still only four points clear of the dreaded 22nd place in the standings.

Prediction ⚽️

While Swansea City beat Blackburn Rovers due to a pair of early goals last week, Watford lost to Millwall in the same fashion.

Now, with a trip to Vicarage Road ahead, the Swans will try and extend their winning streak, while the Hornets can sweep the season series. It is a must-win situation for Watford, so we will go with the home team covering the (0) spread with 1.60 odds 🔥.
