Watford Vs Sheffield United Tips and Prediction
Rob Edwards left Forest Green Rovers for Watford, and the 39-year-old is now trying to avoid becoming the next casualty of the Hornets’ board of directors’ trigger-happy behavior.
Watford only won one of their five preseason games, a 4-1 demolition of Wycombe Wanderers. The rest of their games were draws with Panathinaikos and Southampton and losses to Cambridge United and Bolton Wanderers.
Watford may find comfort in the knowledge that only one of their previous 15 opening-day games has resulted in a loss, which is more than can be said for the Blades. Watford is still looking for their first home league win of 2022.
Sheffield United, who finished fifth in the regular season and secured their berth in the playoffs, are attempting to avoid experiencing any more playoff pain in 2022–23. Last season, they were just a few points away from an automatic return to the top division.
Paul Heckingbottom’s team was rewarded for their efforts with a tie against Nottingham Forest after their two-legged match ended 3-3 after extra time, but Morgan Gibbs-White, who scored in the 2-1 second-leg victory, went from hero to zero as he missed the decisive penalty in the shootout.
Sheffield United has not had a good summer of exhibition games. They enter their inaugural Championship match having lost three of their last four friendlies on the road.
Sheffield United has only won one of their last eight such games while losing the other six, and both of their matches in the 2019–20 Premier League season ended equally. Watford is known for excellent first-day performances.
This summer, neither team’s cohesion has been significantly disrupted, and the Hornets will succeed if they can hang onto players like Joao Pedro, Sarr, and Dennis.
Even though Sheffield United had trouble winning on the first day of the season, Heckingbottom’s improved defense was able to hold on for a draw and keep Watford waiting for their next home success.
