Huddersfield Town vs Wigan Athletic Prediction
The Terriers lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Leeds. The toppers and potential champions scored right away in the 3rd minute itself to assert their domination.
Thereafter, the guests did try their best to find an equalizer, but the Leeds defense held strong. Later, they added one more goal to make sure of the three points.
In the meantime, the Latics were held to a 0-0 draw at home the past match-day. It was a must-win game for the hosts, and they were expected to win as well, considering that the opponents were a newly promoted team.
However, they had to settle for a single point at last. But still, the fact that they extended their unbeaten run was impressive.
The Latics are unbeaten in their last six games, and even kept clean sheets in their past four match-ups. This stretch even included a win to nil against the mighty West Brom.
On the road, they are on a four-fixture unbeaten run (three of which were wins), and this series included a win to nil against the toppers Leeds.
On the other hand, their counterparts had a total of four wins from their last nine games, and they have a total of just three wins against this opponent over the years. Moreover, at this venue, they have recorded a single h2h win in the past two decades.
As such, expect the in-form Wigan to avoid a loss at the very least this weekend. However, understand that the Terriers are desperate to avoid the boot, and that they have the experience from Premier League as a bonus point.
Moreover, they are on a two-game winning run at home as well. Considering these stats, expect both teams to fire in goals this Saturday.
