Swansea hosts Bolton in a bottom-of-the-table clash at the Liberty Stadium this weekend. Bolton will desperately want the win in this one as it looks to escape the grips of the relegation zone.
Swansea City and Bolton Wanderers will be meeting for the first time in almost two decades this weekend. The clubs last clashed in the 1992-93 season in League 2, with Bolton winning both those matches.
Swansea is beginning to struggle to keep its head above water in the Premiership. While the team is decent enough at home, they’re struggling to get wins on the road, and find themselves with two wins, two losses and a draw from recent matches as a result.
While Swansea is looking sharp enough up front, with 9 goals scored in five games, their defence is causing problems, with the same number of goals conceded in these fixtures.
Bolton is struggling, meanwhile, with four losses from its last five matches, and two of its last nine. One thing going in the club’s favour is that all of its wins this season have been achieved on the road.
Bolton has scored 5 goals in its last five matches. While attack is nothing to write home about, the defence has been the worst in the Premiership in recent weeks, with a whopping 13 goals conceded in five matches.
Swansea shouldn’t have a serious problem putting away Bolton this weekend unless Bolton finds some way to tighten up its defence.
Swansea’s capable forwards are likely to pick apart the weakest defence in the league with ease, which suggests that a win should go the way of the home team, even though their own defence needs some work.
Our Swansea City vs. Bolton Wanderers betting tip is therefore to take the back bet on Swansea for this fixture.
