Watford took all three points from the clash with Aston Villa at home in a 3-0 clean sheet encounter. The host had lost only one of their recent five PL clashes.

Meanwhile, in the League One contest, Tranmere was seen struggling to get at least a point from the encounter with Blackpool at home.

Also, Tranmere had their previous on the road experience ending in a 4-2 defeat against Burton.

In addition to their league dominance, Watford does show a promising form in the clash. Watford has been performing well in the Premier League lately. Also, their home run is also very good in the major competitions.

Moreover, Watford has stayed unbeaten in eight of the prior ten home matches. Significantly, they have fought well against bigger teams like Arsenal, Man Utd etc.

In the meantime, Tranmere has struggled to mark a win in their past five League One clashes this season. Since they are struggling against their own league teams, Tranmere has a rare chance against the Premier League squad. Also, the visitor has lost six of their last ten trips on the road in major contests.

As such, we can expect the PL contingent to move forward in the tournament. Since Watford is in good form, we can expect them to probably win with a -1 handicap. Also, there is a chance for over 2.5 goals in the clash.
