Coventry vs Watford
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: St. Andrew’s Stadium.
The Hornets were relegated to the second division just at the end of the last season. As a result, they are far more experienced than their counterparts in the league. They are also determined to make a quick return to the top flight.
So far they have done justice to their objective, and have been in or around the close vicinity of the playoff spots.
As of now they are placed fifth in the table, and they need to finish sixth at the least to have a shot at a PL berth.
Currently, the sixth-placed Bournemouth are on a four-game losing run, and they are already trailing by five points behind Xisco Munoz’s men. Likely, this is an opportunity for the Hornets to strengthen their holding in the top-most tier.
Moreover, the first-placed Norwich, and second-placed Swansea are also taking on each other this weekend.
By all means, Munoz’s men need to make use of this chance. As an added advantage, they are pitted against the struggling Sky Blues, who are placed 18th in the table. On top of that, Mark Robins’s men also have an inferior h2h record against this rival over the years.
Coventry vs Watford: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns was one month back, and then the Hornets recorded a 3-2 win.
- They are also on a two-match winning run, and had scored three or more goals in the past two encounters.
- They had registered eight of the former ten overall wins.
- The hosts have won just once at this venue in the past 16-year period.
Coventry vs Watford Prediction
The Sky Blues lost 1-2 at home the last match-day, against Nottingham Forest. In the meantime, Munoz’s men lost 1-2 at home against QPR.
Going on, Robin’s men were winless in eight of their previous ten overall games, and have won just once at this stadium in last five appearances. In the process, they had also failed to score in three of their former five games here.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in four of their last five match-ups, and three of these were wins. They are also in contention for a playoff spot, and are an experienced team from the PL.
Finally, the Hornets also have a good h2h record against this rival in the past several years.
Likely, expect Watford to deliver a winning performance this weekend.
