Watford vs Burton Albion: Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips-7th January 2017

Watford vs Burton Albion
FA Cup – Third Round.
Date: Saturday, 7th January 2017,
Kick-off at 15:00 UK.
Venue: Vicarage Road, Watford.

Watford will be aiming to replicate their last year’s FA Cup campaign this year as they host Burton Albion to Vicarage Road this weekend.

Watford held on till Semi-final in the last edition of the English FA Cup before crashing out against Crystal Palace. They were on a winning streak and also kept clean sheets in their first 4 matches. This year they are starting against a Championship side and will be hoping to go far again this year.

On the contrary, Burton Albion are starting in the 3rd round this season, unlike the previous 2 season which they entered the competition in the first round. The last time they started at this stage was in 2013/2014 season which they unfortunately lost 4-1 to Bournemouth. They will be hoping for a better outing this time.

Burton Albion are currently on a 3-game losing streak in the FA Cup and have conceded at least 3 goals in each of the games.

Watford vs Burton Albion: Prediction

Watford have been struggling in recent games, but they have a chance to turn things around here. They are seen as the favourites despite their poor form in recent weeks. Since they are up against a struggling championship side, we expect Watford to win easily in this fixture.

We expect Watford to win both halves of the game, but we expect most of the goals to come in the second 45 minutes as most of their goals in recent games have come in second half.
