Birmingham vs Huddersfield
England – FA Cup 2018
Date: Tuesday, 6th February 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: St. Andrew’s Stadium (Birmingham).
One of the matchups in the fourth round of the English FA cup will be played by Championship and Premiership sides; Birmingham and Huddersfield Town respectively.
The hosts are gradually waking up when it comes to Championship challenges. However, Steve Cotterill’s boys are placed in the relegation zone. This team comes into the FA cup game with high spirits after thrashing both Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland, which are some of the teams facing the risk of relegation in the Championship division. We should not be surprised when the home side nets only one goal in this match and the game comes to an end that way.
The Terriers are in the crisis and even after a solid start; this team can’t seem to find a way to obtain the three points in the last three games they have played home and away. Looking the EPL table standing and their recent team form, they are by far one of the worst clubs in the league. This may be when looking at most of their away games. They have suffered defeats in their last two match’s courtsey of EPL giants Manchester United and Liverpool. This may be the main reason for relegation if they experience one at the end of the season.
Birmingham vs Huddersfield: Head to head
Most of the meetings that these two teams have had in the past saw them play a game without so many goals. In their last 4 head to head games, they have had 3 draws whereas Birmingham City has won one game at home.
Birmingham vs Huddersfield: Prediction
This will be a rematch since the last game ended with a 1-1 draw. As a matter of fact, we will have one very tough and hard match at St. Andrews arena. However, there will not be too much excitement since both teams are expected to apply a defensive technique.
More than 70% of recent matchups between these teams have been Under 2.5. This match will not be an exception.
