            Watford vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction, Tips & Stats

            On Saturday, Vicarage Road witnesses Watford take on Sheffield Wednesday. The visitors have not won against the Hornets in five attempts and the last three matches have been low scoring.

            Watford

            Valerien Ismael’s side have had a disastrous start to the season, as they are just two points above the drop zone with ten points from 11 games. Watford have won twice this campaign (both at home) but it is clear that they are struggling in attack and in defence. The Hornets have failed to score in 45% of their matches this season, however their performances at home are much better than they are on the road.

            Last time out, they ended their three game loss streak, as they drew 1-1 away to Cardiff. The hosts took the lead just before the half hour mark and they went into the break with the advantage. Vakoun Issouf Bayo then replied in the 54th minute and if it wasn’t for poor finishing, Watford could have won the tie.

            Sheffield Wednesday

            Bottom of the table, Sheffield Wednesday, have only picked up three points from 11 matches this season and they are still yet to taste victory since earning promotion. Their biggest issue has been In front of goal and they have failed to score in seven matches so far, with an average of 0.45 goals scored per match. Wednesday also concede 1.64 goals per match which rises to 2 when they are on their travels.

            Their most recent game was a 0-0 home draw against Huddersfield Town. The game saw very little action at either end of the field and there was only one shot on target between the two clubs. With both sides struggling it was a game that the clubs were content with not losing.

            Verdict?

            This match is the perfect opportunity for Watford to get back on track and considering they are solid at home, the Hornets should be confident that they can claim all three points. Sheffield Wednesday’s goal scoring woes are too much too look past.

            The final prediction is Watford 1-0 Sheffield Wednesday.

            Watford Team News

            Ken Sema is not fit to start as he is currently dealing with a muscle injury. Bayo should lead the line and be supported be Matheus Martins. Daniel Bachmann will captain the side from the goalkeeper position and the side should start in a 4-3-3 formation.

            Sheffield Wednesday Team News

            Barry Bannan, Josh Windass and Mohammed Diaby are all potentially unavailable, but the side that earned a draw last week should start again in a 3-4-1-2 formation.
