Reasons for Huddersfield Town vs Tottenham Hotspurs tip
John Smith’s Stadium will be the venue of one highly enjoyable match. Huddersfield Town and Tottenham Hotspurs are going to open the 7th round of the English Premier League. After a solid start, the Terriers entered a difficult period for them with several failures. Meanwhile, Tottenham is back from Cyprus where they recorded a victory in the Champions League clash. The Spurs need to win to keep up with the top clubs and rivals for the title.
Huddersfield Town preview
After several good performances at the start of the season, Huddersfield Town started slipping. David Wagner’s team didn’t win in the previous 4 games, and on 3 occasions they haven’t scored. All those matches were under 2.5 goals, and in the majority of times, the efficiency in the Terriers games was not high. Following Premier League’s beginning, only one game saw 3 or more goals, and that was the opener against Crystal Palace away from home, 0-3.
Also, solely one game ended with both teams to score. This indicates that the hosts like to play defensive matches and that they are focused on counter attacks. Unlike the previous season where Huddersfield Town was one of the most entertaining clubs in the Championship, things are much different now. Danny Williams, Kasey Palmer, Collin Quaner, Steve Mounie, all of these players will be unavailable for this game.
Tottenham Hotspurs Preview
Harry Kane is on a rampage, and that was obvious in a recent couple of weeks. His performance against APOEL when he scored a hat-trick is the best possible proof of it. The game at Cyprus was the 3rd in a row in which the Spurs won and 5th in the previous 6 games. But there is one very interesting data when we look Tottenham Hotspurs’ performances away from home. They have scored at least two goals in all 4 contests, and they were extremely confident. 4 victories with the goal difference of 11-2, and clean sheets in 3 events. When opponents attack and decide not to park a bus in front of their goal, Tottenham is unstoppable. The biggest potential problem for the guests will be the condition of Christian Eriksen who is uncertain for this game because of illness. Moussa Dembele is also doubtful, while Serge Aurier has suspension because of the red card against West Ham United.
Huddersfield Town vs Tottenham Hotspurs Head to Head
After a long time, this is going to be the first meeting between these teams. They haven’t played in the English Premier League, and the last official game happened in 1972. The Spurs were more successful and defeated Huddersfield 2-1 at home.
Huddersfield Town vs Tottenham Hotspurs Prediction and Betting Tips
The guests are closer to victory, and there is no doubt about it, but we believe that they’re not going to be efficient as they are in the majority of matches. It is evident that they have some problems against the teams who are extremely defensive. Huddersfield Town he is such a team, who likes to wait for mistakes and counter attacks. Nevertheless, we are backing up the Spurs to win, and for the second suggestion, we pick Tottenham to win with clean sheets.
Up-to-date performances of Huddersfield assures us that this is the right bet.
