Huddersfield vs Manchester United – FA Cup: Huddersfield and Man Utd play this Saturday afternoon at the John Smith Stadium, on a match of the FA Cup’s 8th finals
Huddersfield occupies the 17th place of the Premier League with 27 points conquered, having a record of 7 wins, 6 draws and 14 losses.
Their goal ratio tells us that they count with 23 goals scored and 47 goals conceded (being the 2nd worst defence in the league), which results on an average of 2.6 goals per match.
It is playing at the John Smith that the Terriers get better results, conquering double the amount of points that they conquer away from home.
On the previous rounds of the FA Cup, Huddersfield has eliminated Bolton and Birmingham.
Man Utd is in 2nd place of the Premier League with 56 points conquered, thanks to a record of 17 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses.
On the goals chapter, the Red Devils count with 51 goals scored and 19 goals conceded, presenting an average of 2.6 goals per match.
Their away record has been average, only winning half of the matches they’ve played away from Old Trafford.
To reach the 8th finals of this competition, the team from Manchester has had to eliminate Derby and Yeovil.
Huddersfield vs Manchester United – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The side led by José Mourinho is coming off a loss at Newcastle, and therefore, as Michael Carrick said on the match preview, the roster is motivated to give a good reply and advance on a competition that might be their only escape to get a trophy on the season.
Huddersfield records better results at home, but on the reception to the big teams, they have shown great difficulties. On the 5 rounds where they faced the big teams at the John Smith, they’ve conceded 2 or more goals in 4 of them.
This way, I believe that Man Utd might take advantage to redeem themselves from the last match and score some goals against the 2nd worst defence of the Premier League.
