Our prediction for this Championship match:
Watford and Swansea go head to head at Vicarage Road on day 13 of the new Championship campaign. The Hornets produced their best display of the season at the weekend, with the team rolling over Stoke City 4-0, and they must be brimming with confidence ahead of Wednesday’s showdown. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be pacey winger Ismaila Sarr, who found the net in the crushing over the Potters, while all Cleverley, Dele-Bashiru, and Manaj are likely to miss the game with injuries.
The Swans have been scoring goals for fun in the Championship of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Given Watford’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Cameroon midfielder Olivier Ntcham should sneak into Swansea’s starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the 3-2 win over WBA.
