Huddersfield vs Watford
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 April 2019
Kick-Off 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium (Huddersfield).
Watford were doomed to failure right at the start of Monday’s affair with Arsenal in the previous round. They conceded a bizarre 10th-minute goal after a horrendous mistake by Ben Foster, while their key striker Troy Deeney got sent off just a minute later. The Hornets, however, still produced a fine overall display and even got close to finding the equalizer later on against Champions League hopefuls and Europa League quarter-finalists.
Overall, it was a successful season for Javi Gracia and his men. They made it to the FA Cup final after an extraordinary comeback against Wolverhampton Wanderers in recent semi-final at Wembley. They sit 10th in the league ladder being miles away from the relegation scrap. Saturday’s visit to The John Smith’s Stadium and the clash with the weakest team in the top flight of English football will be a perfect occasion for Watford to regain the confidence and return to winning ways after the mentioned loss to the Gunners.
Huddersfield vs Watford: Head-to-head
Huddersfield Town have a positive head to head record as they lead the tie by two wins coming into 16th meeting with the Hornets.
The Terriers won three in a row against Watford before suffering a tough 3-0 defeat away at Vicarage Road Stadium in this term of Premier League.
Interestingly, three or more goals were scored in 10 of past 11 head to head affairs between these two likes.
Huddersfield vs Watford: Prediction
Huddersfield continued to struggle badly last weekend when they fell 4-0 against the mixed line-up of Tottenham Hotspur’s. The Terriers conceded four goals in three of last four league outings and they will head into this off the back of six consecutive defeats in the competition. They lost 11 of past 12 Premier League fixtures and they collected no more than 14 points in 34 rounds so far.
Everything points out to a one-way street and an easy victory for the visiting outfit. Knowing about the high-scoring head to head tradition and Huddersfield’s dreadful defensive form in recent weeks, there is also a huge value in 1.80 odds offered for three or more goals to be scored in the match.
