Our football match prediction:
Watford do not enjoy playing in festive fixtures. The Hornets are on a five-match winless run in the league ahead of Saturday’s football match against Burton Albion and we predict that they will fight tooth and nail in order to get back on course. Coach Walter Mazzarri has some selection worries ahead of the visit of the Brewers, but there is every chance the Italian tactician will field the best possible side against the Championship outfit. Odion Ighalo is likely to lead the likely to lead the attack for the hosts and considering that the Hornets are tough to beat at home, we are positive that they will make it to the next round. Burton Albion are eager to secure the Championship survival and they would not be too disappointed with elimination in the FA Cup. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in a competitive match.
