Derby County vs Hull City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 9th February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Pride Park (Derby).
The Rams recorded a tough win over Reading in their last home-tie. Right from the beginning, the team played for a win and was successful in establishing their dominance by the time the first half ended. Duane Holmes and Harry Wilson scored for the hosts.
In the latter half, the team relaxed a bit, probably with an eye on their next set of fixtures. The visitors managed to slot past a goal during this time, but the result was almost out of their hand by the time.
The Airlie Birds had to endure a tough evening against Blackburn, on the road. The team was subjected to a tough 0-3 scoreline. They could manage only two attempts on the goal, and both were easily dealt with by David Raya.
Derby County vs Hull City: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Six of the last eight games saw Frank Lampard’s men scoring two or more goals.
- The last four, and six of the last seven wins were recorded by the team from Derbyshire.
- At the Pride Park, the hosts scored four or more goals in two of their last three attempts.
- The visitors failed to score in these two ties.
- Seven of the last ten fixtures had over 2.5 goals.
Derby County vs Hull City: Prediction
The Rams were winless in 11 of their last 13 games, and in 18 of their last 20 home-ties. They are also on unbeaten streaks of four and six matches, in overall, and at home, respectively. The team managed to find the back of the net in 18 of their last 21 appearances at the Pride Park.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, were winless in three of their last five games, and in their last three on the road. Two of their last three visits to Derby also ended in losses. Moreover, the last four wins in h2h ties and six of the last seven were registered by their opposite number. The hosts have the higher chances of converting this tie into three points.
Lee Radford’s men have conceded two or more goals in three of their last five fixtures, and in six of their last eight matches on the road. They let past four or more in two of their last three h2h ties, at this venue. Taking into account these observations, I think we can expect a goal from the home team in the first 45 minutes itself.
