    The Championship will feature a midweek round of fixtures, as Leicester City look to continue their battle for the league title.

    Ipswich and Leeds United are both battling for the title, with 17 games down. Meanwhile, Rotherham, Queens Park Rangers, and Sheffield Wednesday look nailed for relegation.

    Leeds United - Swansea City

    Leeds United and Swansea City will meet on Wednesday for the first time since 2019-20. The Whites hold a slight edge over Swansea City, with three wins, one draw, and two defeats.

    Swansea go into the match winless in their last three games in the league. They are 17th in the division and eight points above the relegation zone. The Swans lost to Ipswich on their last away trip. It ended a three-game win streak on the road.

    Leeds are third in the league and unbeaten in their last four Championship matches. They are 10 points off first place and seven off second place. The Whites are on a five-game home winning streak.

    Sheffield Wednesday - Leicester City

    Sheffield Wednesday and Leicester City will play a league match for the first time since 2014 on Wednesday. The Owls are in disarray on and off the pitch. They are bottom of the league and will play the Championship’s best side.

    Leicester are fresh off a 2-0 win over Watford. The victory ended a two-game losing streak. The Foxes are the best team on the road in the Championship. However, their most recent away fixture was a 1-0 loss to Middlesbrough.

    Sheffield Wednesday are on a three-game losing streak. They took a mere three points from the last 18 points on offer. The Owls conceded 11 times in their last six games, scoring a mere three goals.

    • Prediction: Leicester City to win.

    Southampton - Bristol City

    Bristol City will travel to Southampton seeking to strengthen their bid for a promotion playoff place. Southampton are already in the playoff places and are aiming to stay in the top six.

    The Saints are the Championship’s most in-form team. They took 14 points from the last six fixtures. Southampton tallied 11 goals and conceded six times.

    Bristol City are just three points off the top six. A win and results going their way could send them into the playoff places. The Robins took 10 points from the last six games, scoring just five goals and conceding five times.

    • Bristol City reach an average of 0.88 goals scored in their away games (Championship).

    The Black Cats are ninth in the standings and two points off the playoffs. They are not in great form, however. Just seven points were taken from Sunderland’s last six fixtures. Sunderland lost 2-0 to Plymouth last time out.

    Huddersfield are again battling against relegation. The Terriers go into the match on the back of five straight matches without a win. Huddersfield were held scoreless in three of the last five games.
