In a sentence: As both sides look to put league matters to one side, who can take that one step closer to a potential trip to Wembley?

Last Time: The last time these two played was back in 2010 in the Championship. The score was 0-0 and to show how long ago it was, Paulo Sousa and Alan Irvine were the managers on the day.

This time: A home win is at 15/8, a draw is 11/5 and Swansea are favourites at 13/10.

You might remember: The only time there has ever been a win for either side in this fixture was a 2-0 Swansea win in 2009, thanks to a brace from Darren Pratley.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Recent results have eased Swansea’s Premier League worries but will the FA Cup prove to be more of a distraction?

Given their recent form, it would be risky to really go all in on Wednesday this weekend. That being said, a 1-1 draw is priced at 6/1 which might be the easiest way to sit on the fence in this clash. A Swansea win with both sides to score is at 15/4 which is also a very good bet, especially if you want a 3-1 Swansea win at 18/1.

Nathan Dyer had a lovely time of it in the last FA Cup replay against Notts County as the Swans won 8-1, so him to score first this time is priced at 7/1, whilst another brace is 16/1. Tammy Abraham is also 9/2 to score first and to grab another double like the Notts County game is priced at 17/2.

As for the home side, Atdhe Nuhiu scored a penalty at the weekend and is 6/1 to score first and 21/10 to score at any time. His Wednesday team mate Lucas Joao is exactly the same to score first at 6/1 and 21/10 to score at any time as well.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Tammy Abraham could get back into the goals this weekend and a hat trick for the loanee is at 60/1.

2

We fancy:

Swansea to win 3-1 with Nathan Dyer to score at any time is priced at 40/1 and is well worth a look.

3

It’s a long shot, but:

Jordan Rhodes is still known for his goal threat, so Wednesday to win 2-1 and Rhodes to score first is 45/1.
