Huddersfield Town vs Watford Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Huddersfield Town went five games without a win after a 1-1 draw at Brighton at the AMEX Stadium. David Wagner’s men received a setback when Jonas Lossl gave a lead for Brighton after 29 minutes, but this did not turn out into a catastrophe. Steve Mounie equalised for Huddersfield just three minutes later. Wagner’s men were unable to capitalise on Davy Propper’s red card in the 74th minute. Watford slipped to a 2-1 home defeat against Burnley to make it more than a month without a victory. Just when it seemed that Roberto Pereira’s second-half goal would hand Watford a crucial win, two quick goals from Sam Vokes and Jack Cork gave a win for the away team.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Huddersfield will be aware that their survival hopes rest completely on the home game against Watford, as a difficult end to the season gives them little hope of picking up points in the last four games. Huddersfield are expected to give their maximum in this game, while Watford have slacked off in the last couple of games. After having picked up a comprehensive win in the reverse fixture, Huddersfield will be confident about a victory. I would back the same.

The Watford team has been defensively poor in the last few matches. Since the clean sheet against West Brom, the team has conceded a remarkable 12 goals in the last four games. Huddersfield having the lowest scorers in the division with only 26 in the 33 games, but Mounie ending his four-game drought is good news. Both teams are expected to contribute in this game and I would choose over 2.5 goals in the match.

Huddersfield Town Preview

Even though Huddersfield have spent a majority of the campaign outside the bottom three places, there is a significant danger of Huddersfield being pulled back into the relegation zone at the worst possible time. The club have a slender four-point advantage over Southampton in the 18th place, but this does not look sufficient at all with games against Everton, Manchester City, Chelsea, and Arsenal coming up. Huddersfield probably have the toughest end to the campaign and David Wagner has his work cut out after only taking a point against Brighton. Stevie Mounie leads the scoring charts at the club with seven league goals.

Huddersfield Town Team News

Daniel Williams (ankle), Jonathan Hogg (ankle), Sean Scannell (shoulder), Elias Kachunga (ankle), and Michael Hefele (knee) are unavailable due to injury.

Watford Preview

Watford have taken their eyes off the Premier League after going through a poor part of form over the last month. Back-to-back wins over Everton and West Brom have put Watford within three points off 40 points. Even though manager Javi Garcia repeatedly claimed that his players will not be easing up after the consecutive wins, it does not appear to be the case since Watford have only picked up one point from the last four games. However, the Hornets will be comfortable from relegation due to their substantial nine-point advantage over the drop zone.

Watford Team News

Tom Cleverley (hamstring), Nathaniel Chalobah (knee), Gerard Deulofeu (foot), and Tommy Hoban (cruciate ligament) are unavailable for Watford.
