📊 Form Guide

Derby County, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-1 Championship success vs Norwich City.

In that game, Derby County managed 34% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. The only player to score for Derby County was Wayne Rooney (87'). At the other end, Norwich City got 13 attempts on goal with 5 on target.

Derby County have not been in good attacking form of late. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 3 vs opposing sides during the course of their last 6 fixtures. In those meetings, The Rams have also seen the number of goals scored against them come to 10. However, we must now wait to see if the trend will be replicated in this upcoming game.

Their prior results show that Derby County:

  • have not been beaten in the league by Watford in their previous 4 games.
  • haven’t won at home in the past 5 league matches. Their fans aren't happy.

Following on from being beaten in their last game against Reading in Championship competition, Watford will be aiming to make amends here.

In that match, Watford had 56% possession and 11 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. At the other end, Reading got 9 attempts on goal with 4 on target. George Puşcaş (41') scored for Reading.

For 5 of the past six games featuring Watford, a notably low volume of goals have been struck between them and opposing teams. The overall average goals scored per game in that period works out to a mere 1.5, with the average goals for The Hornets being 0.67.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Watford:

  • have left without a victory over Derby County in games played away from home for the previous 3 league matches.
  • haven’t won away from home in the past 10 league matches. What a terrible run of away results.

↔️ Head to head

A glance at their most recent head to head clashes stretching back to 01/09/2012 shows that Derby County have won 4 of them & Watford 1, with the tally of drawn results standing at 1.

There were also goals galore in those games, with 27 overall which averages out at 4.5 goals per match.

ℹ️ Team News: Derby County

Derby County manager Phillip Cocu doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of before this match with a completely healthy squad ready to go.

📋 Team News: Watford

From a largely healthy squad, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the Watford gaffer Vladimir Ivić to contend with. Nathaniel Chalobah (Corona virus) misses out for this game. Stipe Perica is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

⚡ Prediction

In our view, Derby County may not find it easy to hit the back of the net against this Watford lineup who we reckon will score one, at least.

With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a good tussle with a 0-1 win for Watford when the full-time whistle blows.

Should be an interesting one.
