Swansea City vs Huddersfield Town
Date: Saturday, 17 October 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Liberty Stadium, Swansea.
After ending the previous Championship campaign in 6th position and participating in the playoffs, Swansea City and their fans are ready for one more step forward.
The second most popular squad from Wales has opened the new season great, having collected ten out of possible twelve points, welcoming Huddersfield in great mood this Saturday at Liberty.
The Swans have been phenomenal in keeping their net intact (three clean sheets so far), so Terriers will surely have a rough time to find the hole and be dangerous upfront.
As expected, all bookmakers are siding with hosts, offering 1.95 odds on Swansea City to win the match.
Swansea vs Huddersfield Head-to-head
There were sixteen head to head matches between these two teams in the past. Interestingly, Huddersfield Town have minimal 6-5 lead in terms of victories and 20-18 goal difference.
Their Terriers’ stats are not so great when it comes to matches at Liberty, having two wins, two draws and four losses.
The last meeting also happened at this venue earlier this year in February. Swansea took an easy 3-1 home win thanks to the goals scored by Ayew, Garrick and Fulton.
Five out of the last six encounters between these two teams ended Under 2.5 FT.
Swansea vs Huddersfield Prediction
As already mentioned above, Swansea City have demonstrated some impeccable defending in opening four rounds. The Swans conceded only one goal in 360 minutes. Only Watford FC and Reading have the same stats so far.
Their campaign started with a win against Preston North End, followed by a goalless draw at home against Birmingham City.
Beating Wycombe on the road wasn’t a big issue, as well as Millwall at this venue.
Overall Steve Cooper is doing a great job as the team manager, giving opportunity to a lot of players. Their roster hasn’t changed much in comparison to last year, so top six placement is definitely possible.
Huddersfield on the other hand are in the middle with four points total. Their away days were not so great so far, getting easily defeated by Brentford and grabbing only one points against Rotherham.
We are assured that hosts will collect all three points here and keep a clean sheet.
