Birmingham City Preview – Blues to make it seven points from a possible nine?

A few eyebrows were raised this summer when Aitor Karanka agreed to take over at Birmingham City, who finished just above the bottom three last term. The Blues have made a good start to their Championship campaign, taking four points from a possible six so far.

On the opening weekend of the new league season, Birmingham shocked promotion favourites Brentford at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium. Jeremy Bela’s goal in the 37th minute proved to be enough to give City a narrow 1-0 home victory.

Under 2.5 goals

Karanka’s men then battled to a 0-0 draw with Steve Cooper’s Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium last weekend. Getting four points from two tricky opening fixtures was just what the doctor ordered for the Blues, who finished down in 20th place last term.

Can Birmingham make it seven points from three games with a home victory at the weekend?

Rotherham United Preview – Millers to leave the Midlands with zero points?

Rotherham United started life back in the Championship with an excellent win over Wycombe Wanderers, who were also promoted from EFL League One last term. Michael Ihiekwe scored right at the death at Adams Park to give Paul Warne’s men an invaluable three points on the opening weekend.

However, Rotherham got a taste of what life could be like this term in a tough Championship, as they were beaten by Gary Rowett’s Millwall at the New York Stadium last time out. It was a tight and tense matchup in South Yorkshire, with the Lions nicking a 1-0 victory thanks to a 50th-minute Jed Wallace effort.

Keeping themselves in the Championship for more than one season will be Rotherham’s ultimate ambition. However, they will be fully aware of just how hard that task might be this term, especially with so many top clubs playing in England’s second tier these days.

Can United dust themselves down after last weekend’s narrow home defeat and leave Birmingham with a positive result on Saturday?


Birmingham City vs Rotherham United Betting Advice

When Rotherham were last in the Championship in the 2018-19 season, the Millers were beaten 3-1 by the Blues both home and away. Birmingham are unbeaten in the last five meetings, winning three and drawing two.


Key Facts – Birmingham City vs Rotherham United Betting Tip

  • Rotherham have won just one of their past 15 meetings with Birmingham
  • The Blues have won three and drawn one of their last four Championship encounters against the Millers
  • Karanka has started life at St Andrew’s with four points from six on offer


Karanka, who guided Middlesbrough to the Premier League five seasons ago, is an experienced manager in the Championship. The former Real Madrid player has settled in quickly in the Midlands, and his Birmingham team should get the better of Warne’s Rotherham on Saturday.
