Huddersfield vs Blackburn
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 29 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Kirklees Stadium.
The Terriers are on an impressive run at home, and have been scoring goals in plenty. They also have a good h2h record against this opponent over the years.
Meanwhile, the Rovers are on a dismal run at the moment, and are struggling to secure at least one clean sheet once in a while. They are also on an even more worrying run on the road.
Likely, expect Huddersfield to have the upper hand at their home.
However, note that Tony Mowbray’s men have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition, whereas only two other squads have conceded more goals than Carlos Corberan’s men – and one of these two teams are the dead-last placed Wycombe.
As such, expect goals from both teams this Tuesday.
Huddersfield vs Blackburn: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Six of the previous seven games had goals from both teams.
- The Terriers had scored two or more goals in four of the past seven encounters.
- They are also on an unbeaten run of eight encounters – spanning a period of six years.
- Since 1999, barring one game, every single official fixture at this stadium has had goals from both teams.
- Since 2000, only once have the guests won at this venue.
Huddersfield vs Blackburn: Prediction
Corberan’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Barnsley. In the meantime, the Rovers were held to a 1-1 draw the past game week, by Sheffield Wednesday.
Going on, the Terriers were unbeaten in six of their preceding nine match-ups, and at this stadium, they are on a four-match winning run – scoring two or more goals in all these four fixtures.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in nine of their past twelve overall match-ups, and on the road, they remained so in five of their preceding six attempts.
Considering these stats, expect Huddersfield to secure at least one point this Tuesday at the Kirklees Stadium.
Going on though, note that Mowbray’s men have failed to score just twice in their last eleven overall games, and just four times in their preceding fifteen road trips. They had also scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the league.
In addition, majority of h2h encounters over the years were high-scoring in nature, and particularly the ones at this ground.
As such, the expectation is that the upcoming match-up will be another goal-fest as well.
