Swansea City vs Watford Prediction and Betting Tips | December 30th 2022

Swansea City v Cardiff City - Sky Bet Championship
Swansea City will host Watford - Sky Bet Championship

Swansea City will host Watford at the Stadium on Friday in another round of EFL Championship football.

The home side have had a largely underwhelming campaign and currently find themselves in the bottom half of the Championship table. They were beaten 2-1 by Reading in their game on Tuesday and perhaps deserved more from the match as they created quality chances to draw level but were guilty of wasteful finishing.

Swansea sit 16th in the league table with 32 points from 24 games and will be hopeful of adding to that tally this weekend.

Watford have had mixed results this season but remain in the race for promotion. However, they were beaten 2-0 on home turf by Millwall in their last league outing, falling behind in the opening 25 minutes of the game before a red card to Hassane Kamara just before the interval scuppered their chances of a comeback.

Swansea City vs Watford Prediction

Swansea are on a three-game winless streak and are without a win in their last eight league matches. They are winless in their last two home games and will be looking to end that streak this weekend.

The Hornets' latest result ended a four-game unbeaten run and they will be looking to bounce back on Friday. They have won three of their last four away games and should come out on top here.
