Match Preview & Team News
Both sides had very disappointing campaign in previous months. The Rams have managed to collect only 43 points from 45 games, currently sitting on dangerous 21st place two points behind the relegation zone. Wayne Rooney’s boys have lost eight out of the last nine divisional matches and ruined all the good work from late 2020. Bookies have given small advantage to the Rams who are currently at 13/10 odds to win this match. Can Sheff Wed keep their tier two membership card?

Current Form And Home & Away Performances
The first seasonal head to head match between these opponents took place at Hillsborough on 1st January when Owls took hard-earned three points against the Rams. The only goal in the match was scored by Callum Paterson in 60th minute. Derby hosted Sheff Wed 44 times in the past and they have high win rate (won 26 encounters) while losing only six. Their back line has been a mess lately though, failing to keep one single clean sheet in the last six appearances. The last victory achieved was on 2nd April at home against Luton Town 2-0. The Owls are in slightly better form, gathering five points from the last five games. They managed to beat Blackburn Rovers at home 1-0.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Four out of the last five head to head encounters between these opponents ended with BTTS, which is going to be the case on Saturday as well in our opinion. The current price for this option is 5/6.
As mentioned above, Derby County have been a true mess lately, having lost so many games against not so strong opponents. If you are looking for a banker bet, try with draw or away win double chance at 3/5.
