Birmingham City vs Watford Tips and Prediction
Watford, who have yet to play on a Saturday or Sunday, prevailed over Burnley in a matchup of Premier League relegated teams on Friday night in the Championship.
Tom Cleverley’s goal towards the conclusion of the first half was sufficient to secure a 1-0 victory, giving new manager Rob Edwards his second home victory out of two chances.
Even though the Hornets were under a lot of pressure in the second half, especially in the final 10 minutes after Hassane Kamara was sent off for a last-man foul, they were able to earn all three points and move to the top of the Championship table before Saturday’s games.
They have now been overtaken, but with seven points already to their name with Ismaila Sarr and Joao Pedro still with the team, Watford is anticipated to remain among the early pace-setters.
Emmanuel Dennis, who led the league in scoring last season, may have left for Nottingham Forest, but Edwards has also presided over the arrival of some impressive acquisitions over the past week, so the visitors head to the Midlands with confidence that they will at least go undefeated.
The doomsayers were somewhat quieted at St Andrew’s when they finished their first two games of the new season with four points, but Birmingham was unable to maintain the optimistic vibes for their weekend journey to the Welsh capital.
Jaden Philogene-Bidace, on loan from Aston Villa, gave John Eustace’s team the lead early against Cardiff City, and they were lucky not to lose by a bigger margin than the final score of 1-0.
Despite managing a 2-1 victory over playoff finalists Huddersfield Town in their lone home game so far, many predict Blues to be involved in another fight to avoid relegation this season given their well-documented problems off the field.
There have been some encouraging signs for Eustace and the club’s troubled supporters, including the EFL Cup match in which they came from behind to draw 2-2 with Norwich before losing to the Canaries on penalties.
The manager of Kidderminster Harriers and former QPR assistant spent five years of his playing career at Watford, appearing 157 times for Birmingham’s following opponents. However, sentimentality will be in short supply when the Hornets arrive in B9.
Although Birmingham has been extremely resolute thus far, giving up just two goals in three league games, they may not be able to hold out against a well-stocked Watford assault on Tuesday, as the visitors’ multitude of options up front will sway the result in their favor.
