Watford hosts Sheffield Wednesday in round 39 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Friday, April 2nd at Vicarage Road (Watford).
Watford showed terrible results in the previous season. The team, which lacked a little to break into the European cups in the tournament before last, fell to the bottom of the standings from the very beginning of the draw and eventually went to the Championship, despite the frequent change of coaches. Moreover, the Hornets have already changed a manager even here. But at least it benefited the project. There were a lot of doubts about Xisko (before that he worked at Dinamo Tbilisi), but he does the main thing - achieves the result, especially in the last meetings. Watford gained nine victories in the last ten matches and won five games in a row. As a result, the team managed to gain a foothold in the 2nd place. The 3rd Swansea is currently six points behind, although the Swans have a match in hand.
Sheffield Wednesday and their neighbors from United could end up in different divisions again. The Owls are almost as bad as the current Blades in the Premier League. Truth be told, if everything is clear with the neighbors (their return to the Championship is inevitable), then Darren Moore's wards will still fight. The former footballer who previously worked at West Bromwich and Doncaster headed Sheffield Wednesday a month ago. Not immediately, but the team managed to stop the losing streak, which stretched for seven matches in a row. First, Sheffield Wednesday gained a draw with Huddersfield. And in the last round, it finally won thanks to Rhodes's double. It was an important result both psychologically and in the tournament sense. However, the situation is still very difficult, and only the hopeless Wycombe has fewer points. To survive, the Owls need to win back the 6-point gap from Birmingham. But they have a game in hand.
Sheffield Wednesday won only one of the last even head-to-head matches and suffered four defeats. But both of the last games brought draws, including in September, when the clubs failed to score in Sheffield. Of course, the Owls will fight in the upcoming game, but the forces seem too unequal. We recommend betting on the victory of the home team.
