Birmingham City vs Peterborough in the Championship on Jan 25. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Birmingham City vs Peterborough in the Championship on Jan 25. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Birmingham City and Peterborough currently sit nearly 12 points apart, with the Blues currently in 18th with 31 points and the Posh occupying 22nd with 19 points. Despite the staunch difference in points and table position, Peterborough still have two games in hand and could very well push themselves out of a potential relegation battle.

Although Birmingham currently have a better position in the table, the Blues have been experiencing a recent spell of underperformance. Out of their last 7 matches, the Blues have won just once at bottom-placed Barnsley and have only racked up two points from draws against Cardiff City and Preston.

Peterborough to Win

Peterborough have managed to bear their teeth in the past against Birmingham City, with their previous meeting ending in a 3-0 to the Posh. Peterborough have also only lost one from six games against the rest of the bottom seven in the Championship, making them a nightmare side who might underestimate them.

The only potential downside for the Posh is their woeful away record, where they have failed to score a significant number of goals against their opponents. However, they have managed to score more against weaker sides and the Blues certainly do not look in form at the moment.

Birmingham City have a poor record against sides closer to the bottom of the table, and their recent run of form doesn’t prop the side up with much hope. The prediction for this upcoming fixture is for Peterborough to win against Birmingham City which at time of writing is priced at 33/10

Birmingham City form, squad news, opinion

Birmingham City’s current run of form has been poor and underwhelming to say the least. The Blues recently faced up against Fulham where they were thrashed 6-2 away from home. Out of their last seven matches, the Blues have won just once, only bagging five points.

The Blues currently have a series of injuries that could be contributing to their poor run of form, and the players are unlikely to be featured in the upcoming fixture against Peterborough. Three important midfielders are currently out, they are Taylor Richards, Ivan Sanchez, and Jordan Graham. The former Watford man Troy Deeney is also out. Two players are at risk of suspension: centre-back Marc Roberts and central midfielder Gary Gardener - they both hold four yellow cards.

The general opinion on Birmingham City is that they are underperforming and completely out of form. Although they currently sit lower down the table, Peterborough look like a team that could be ready to capitalise on Birmingham’s poor form in an attempt to bolster their hopes of ending a possible relegation battle.

Peterborough form, squad news, opinion

Peterborough’s recent run of form hasn’t been covered in much glory but incomparable to Birmingham City. However, most of their defeats have come at the hands of top-half Championship sides, including defeats to Fulham, Blackburn, West Brom, and Nottingham Forest in their last 9. They did manage to produce an impressive home win against Millwall, ending 2-1 in December.

Peterborough only has one absent player listed, right-winger Idris Kanu who has been called up for international duty to play in the Africa Cup of Nations for Sierra Leone. He is due to return to the club in February.

The overall opinion on Peterborough is that they could quite easily cause a further upset to a bottom-end team like Birmingham City and crucially capitalise on the Blue’s poor run of form. Peterborough look hungry to start earning themselves some more points and pull away from a possible relegation battle.

History

The most recent history between the two sides ended in an impressive 3-0 win for Peterborough at the Weston Homes Stadium. Birmingham looked rather lacklustre for that match, and we could potentially see a similar result on Jan 25. 2022.

About the Venue

The fixture between Birmingham City and Peterborough is set to take place at Birmingham’s ground of St Andrew’s Stadium in the centre of the city. The stadium has a long history for the club, and has a capacity of 29,409. The stadium has had Coventry City as the most recent additional tenants for the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons due to refurbishments.

The government rules on Covid-19 are to be implemented for this upcoming fixture. The policy for fans wanting to gain entry to St Andrew’s Stadium on the day will need to provide a Covid passport, which can either be produced via a physical card or a digital pass on a smartphone, or through proof of a negative PCR or lateral flow test which needs to be verified by the NHS and shown via a text message or email at least 48 hours before kick-off.

Conclusion

Birmingham City may have claimed all three points last time out, but their opponent has to be taken into account as their form is poor. Peterborough could be set to take advantage of this as they might see an ideal opportunity to pull away from the relegation zone. The two side’s last meeting ended with a commanding Peterborough win of 3-0, and we could possibly see a similar outcome for the fixture taking place between the Blues and the Posh on Jan 25. 2022.
