Sheffield Wednesday vs Carlisle – FA Cup: This Tuesday night, Sheffield Wednesday hosts Carlisle at Hillsborough
On a match counting towards the FA Cup’s 3rd round Replays.
Sheffield Wednesday occupies the 17th place of the Championship with 31 points conquered, having a record of 7 wins, 10 draws and 10 losses.
On the goals chapter, the Owls have 30 goals scored and 34 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.4 goals per match.
Sheffield’s home record has been very inconsistent, with the team getting practically the same amount of points as they’ve gotten away from home.
Right now, the Owls are on a negative moment of form, since they are on a dreadful cycle of 12 matches with only 1 win.
Carlisle is in 13th place of the 4th tier of English football with 37 points conquered, having 10 wins, 7 draws and 10 losses.
When it comes to goals, the visiting side has 38 goals scored and 37 goals conceded, presenting, this way, an average of 2.8 goals per match.
Curiously, Carlisle has more points conquered away from home than at home, with 6 wins obtained on the 13 away matches they’ve played so far.
Similarly to their opponents, Carlisle is also on a streak of inconsistent results, despite only having lost 2 of their last 7 matches.
Sheffield’s new manager, Jos Luhukay, has made his debut in charge on their last match, against Sheffield United, on a match that finished with a 0-0 draw.
The constraints that existed on that last match, are still there for this match, namely the fact that they only have 16 players available from their main roster,
and then the fact that their central defender and captain Loovens was sent off in the derby, meaning he will also be unavailable.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Carlisle – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Sheffield Wednesday’s weak offensive production, with 0 goals scored on their last 4 matches, allied with the countless absences on their roster, leads me to believe that the value is on the visiting side, despite the fact they are 2 divisions below.
It is also worth mentioning that this team from the English 4th tier has scored in 9 of their last 10 away matches, which means Carlisle should put up a good fight in Hillsborough and, if they lose, it should be by the slimmest of margins.
