Hornets to sting Brum

Birmingham's woes continued with a 1:0 loss at Cardiff on Saturday; they've now lost four of their last seven games, with just one win in that stretch. In comparison, Watford have fared better than Birmingham lately; the Hornets have no losses in their last five matches, with three wins and two draws. It's also worth noting that Watford have had Birmingham's number in recent years; they won seven of the last eight clashes between these sides, including their last three. With this in mind, we are making the prediction that Watford will win this match.

Expecting a lack of goals

We should start by pointing out that Watford did not concede a single goal in their last three meetings with Birmingham; they allowed just one goal in the last eight encounters between these teams. Because of this, recent clashes between Birmingham and Watford have mostly been low-scoring; as four of their last six meetings saw one goal scored or less. In the same vein, Watford conceded just once in their last four games, with all of those games going below the 2.5 goal mark. On that note, this will likely be a low-scoring affair.

Can Watford maintain their impressive start?

Watford have made a mightily impressive start to the season as they stand undefeated from three league games despite not remotely hitting their top gear as yet. Birmingham meanwhile arrive into this match winless in their last two matches and with a ropey head to head record against their visitors.

Birmingham did not look too good when they took on Cardiff last weekend; they did not register a single shot on target, and were lucky not to concede more than one goal. John Eustace's men have now lost back-to-back games, with one win in their last seven games; will they be able to get back to winning ways today?

Birmingham City Predicted lineup – Ruddy, Sanderson, Roberts, Trusty, Colin, Deeney, James, Placheta, Bacuna, Hogan, Chang

Watford are coming off a 1:0 win against Burnley; although they were reduced to 10 men with nine minutes left on the clock, the Hornets held on for the win. Watford are now unbeaten in their last five games, with three wins and two draws; they'll look to extend that run to six games as they make the trip to Birmingham.

Watford Predicted lineup – Bachmann, Gaspar, Sierralta, Cathcart, Kabesele, Kayembe, Choudhury, Sarr, Cleverly, Sema, Pedro
