Huddersfield vs Burnley
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 2 January 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium (Huddersfield).
Bottom two sides in the Premier League ladder are set to take on each other on Wednesday evening at The John Smith’s Stadium.
This Premier League fixture Huddersfield vs Burnley has all the ingredients of a relegation six-pointer given teams’ form and position in the standings.
Huddersfield somehow managed to save the top flight status last year, but David Wagner and his men will have a mountain to climb to repeat similar achievement this time around. They equalled their worst streak of defeats in the history of the competition by losing seventh on the spin on Saturday afternoon to Fulham at Craven Cottage.
The Terriers were very close to having their net untouched, especially after Danish keeper Jonas Lossl denied Kamara’s penalty-kick effort eight minutes from time. However, Huddersfield allowed a stoppage-time goal to Aleksandar Mitrovic to lose a precious point and stay at the rock-bottom of the league ladder.
Huddersfield vs Burnley: Head-to-head
None of last three head to head clashes between these two sides offered a winner (0-0, 0-0, 1-1).
The Terriers lead the head to head tie by six wins thanks to impressive displays in front of the home crowd where they won 15 and lost 8 of 25 ties against Clarets.
Burnley only scored 20 goals in 25 away matches against Huddersfield.
Huddersfield vs Burnley: Prediction
The visitors have really been on a poor spell of form lately. They lost six of last seven league matches. It is the biggest crisis Sean Dyche has seen in the last couple of years. Clarets conceded as many as eight goals in back-to-back defeats to Arsenal and Everton.
Burnley are particularly struggling on travels where they won one, drew two and lost seven of nine games scoring just seven times in the process. The Terriers, on the other hand, notched only four goals in ten home matches this season.
Given two of last three head to head games ended without goals, a goalless draw might be just the way to go here.
