Derby County vs Watford FC
English Championship

Venue: Pride Park Stadium.

After a short break for international matches, English Championship will resume this Friday. Round Five opening match will take place at Pride Park where Derby County welcomes Watford FC.

It looked like this break came at bad time for The Rams. They finally recovered from an awful start to the new campaign and defeated one of the best teams in the league Norwich City.

Are they able to take big scalp for second time in a row and escape the lower part of the table?

Bookies don’t think so obviously, offering high 3.20 odds on Derby to win the match.

Derby County vs Watford Prediction

Derby County had a really rough time in the opening weeks of Championship season 2020/21. They were defeated in first three games by Reading, Luton Town and Blackburn Rovers, scoring only one goal and conceding eight!

Tables have finally turned at Carrow Road in early October, beating The Canaries 1-0 thanks to the very late goal of veteran Wayne Rooney.

Coach Philip Cocu needs more players to step up and start delivering.

Fans were expecting to see so much more from 19-years old midfielder Jason Knight, but his performance is not on high level at the moment.

Watford’s journey so far has been decent but not great, having won seven out of possible 12 points. They are definitely a tough team to beat.

Our primary suggestion is going to be Both teams to score at 1.80 odds. The second tip is designed for small stake only – the draw.
