What Trueform says for Huddersfield vs Watford
Huddersfield are battling to stay above the relegation zone and last week’s draw at Brighton was a decent performance and much-needed point.
That lifted them four points clear of 18th-placed Southampton and victory here would be a massive step towards safety in their first season in the Premier League.
Watford are not mathematically safe after following a draw against Bournemouth with a disappointing defeat at home to Burnley but their haul of 37 points may already prove to be enough if other results continue to go their way.
A Look At Huddersfield Town’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield produced their best away performance of the season in the reverse fixture in December with an impressive 4-1 victory at Vicarage Road. That was their first away win since the opening weekend and saw the Terriers score more than a third of all their away goals this season.
That should give them confidence that they can claim three vital points in what looks their easiest remaining fixture ahead of a tough run-in featuring matches against Everton, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.
Steve Mounie’s equaliser at Brighton last week ended Huddersfield’s 427-minute goal drought and they can take that momentum into this game.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford have conceded the second-highest amount of goals in the Premier League this season – only Stoke have allowed more – and shipped in two more at home to Burnley last week when they had looked on course for the win which would have seen them reach the 40-point mark.
Hornets boss Javi Gracia was understandably frustrated, saying: “I think we dominated the game, we had more shots, more shots on target but it wasn’t enough.
“We should have killed the game and after three minutes we have conceded two goals from two free-kicks again.
“We have to improve the defensive actions because we are losing many points. You can see we need to improve defensive actions. I hope in the next game we will be better.”
History suggests there will be plenty of goals again this weekend, with the last seven meetings between these two teams producing 32 goals, with at least three in each of those.
