Watford vs Huddersfield Prediction & Match Preview

Watford vs Huddersfield Town
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road.

The Hornets were part of the Premier League just the last season, and they are now determined to get back where they came from as soon as they can. As of now, they have a game in hand, and are still placed sixth in the table.

They also do have one of the best defenses in the entire competition, and have been even more formidable at home lately.

Meanwhile, the Terriers are going through a dismal run at the moment, and are conceding goals in plenty. They have also been struggling on the road for the past whole season.

Likely, expect Watford to post the win this Saturday.

However, note that h2h encounters over the years have had no clear domination from either team, and Carlos Corberan’s men have scored heavily in these fixtures as well.

On top of that, they are desperate to put an end to their struggles too. Likely, we can expect goals from both teams this weekend.

Watford vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Terriers won the latest encounter with a 2-0 scorecard, just a month back.
  • They had also recorded four of the preceding six overall wins.
  • They had scored two or more goals in seven of former twelve clashes.
  • The visitors scored two or more goals in three of the previous four meetings at this venue.
  • However, the latest match-up at this stadium had ended in a 3-0 win for the home team.

Watford vs Huddersfield Prediction

Xisco Munoz’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Swansea. In the meantime, Corberan’s men lost 1-2 at home the past game week, against Reading.

Going on, the Hornets were unbeaten in 13 of their last 15 overall games, and they had won an impressive 11 of these match-ups.

On the other hand, their counterparts are on a two-game losing run, and were winless in 17 of their past 20 road trips.

Likely, expect the in-form and determined Watford to post the three points on the board this Saturday.

However, note that the Terriers have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years, and have scored in plenty during the while as well.

Moreover, they are also desperate to put an end to their struggles too.

As such, expect Huddersfield to find the back of the net at least once this Saturday.
