Rotherham vs Watford
EFL Championship
Date: Saturday, 03 September 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium.

The recent form looks almost identical for both Rotherham and Watford. Both sides will lock horns this Saturday at the Aesseal New York Stadium.

Watford is having a decent season this year in the second division. Manager Rob Edwards is trying to make amends for being relegated from the Premier League last season.

In the EFL Championship, the Hornets are just two points away from dethroning current league leaders Sheffield United. This can be achieved if they secure a win in this upcoming fixture.

The Hornets can thank Vakoun Issouf Bayo for helping them settle for a draw against Middlesborough in their last game. The number 19 scored the winning goal just seconds away from the full-time whistle.

It is worth knowing that the Millers have the second-best defensive record in the league this season. Since they have only conceded five goals so far. However, this was not the case in their most recent league outing.

Paul Warne and his men suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat against Sunderland in their last league outing. The defensive performance fell apart completely in the second half despite a decent first half from the Millers. The Black Cats took advantage of this and managed to score three goals before full-time.

Looking at the league table, Paul Warne’s side have only managed to win a minute nine points out of a possible eighteen.

Rotherham vs Watford Head-to-head

  • Watford is on a five-game winning streak against the Millers.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in the last four consecutive fixtures between both clubs.
  • The last time Rotherham won this fixture was in 2003.
  • The Hornets won the most recent game in this fixture. That game ended 4-1 for Rob Edwards’s team.

Rotherham vs Watford Prediction

Spectators can expect a goal-fest as Rob Edwards’s side have scored a record of twelve goals in the last five encounters against the Millers.

Moreover, Sunderland handed Paul Warne and his boys their first defeat of the season. In terms of experience, it is Watford who is the winner. Since they played in the Premier League just over a year ago.

Meanwhile, Peter Kioso is out injured for the host and will not be available for selection. Hence Watford will play with more attacking power.

By the looks of things, we expect Watford to win – the odd is at 2.30 for this tip. It is evident that Rob Edwards’s side only lost once in their most recent five games – hence a win is the most likely outcome for them.

You can also bet for Over 2.5 goals at FT bet at 2.20 odd – In the last four fixtures between both sides, over 2.5 goals have been scored.
