Our Prediction:

Brentford will win

Brentford – Huddersfield Match Prediction | 02-11-2019 11:00

Huddersfield Town failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign, but they secured the survival and nothing else matters. A man to watch in the away side will be Lasse Vibe, who scored 14 goals last season. The Terries have been struggling in front of goal in recent friendly games and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to grab something from the opening game of the season. The Terries are on the same quest this season and they will be looking to kick off the 2016/2017 campaign with a win over Brentford at their John Smiths Stadium. Brentford will definitely stick to their attacking style of play in Saturdays football match against Huddersfield and we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the game. The Bees were producing fine displays last season, but they eventually finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in ninth place in the standings.

Huddersfield Town defeated Brentford in the reverse fixture and we predict that they will record yet another win over the Bees in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign. Huddersfield Town were totally outplayed by Manchester City in the FA Cup replay (1-5) and, to make things even worse for the fans, they suffered a 3-1 loss to Newcastle United in the Championship derby at the weekend. Tom Smith helped Huddersfield pick up all three points from Tuesdays football match and, as a result, David Wagners men stayed in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League. The Terriers desperately needed a win against Aston Villa in midweek and they managed to get one. Their next rivals Brentford did remarkably well to beat Nottingham Forest at the City Ground in midweek, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturdays game against the Terriers.

David Wagner still has plenty to prove following an eventual 19th place finish. They conceded 9 goals in their final 2 matches alone and probably wouldnt have been thrilled to see them matched with Brentford again on the opening day of the new season. They have made a host of new signings withDanny Ward, Ivan Paurevic, Jon Stankovic, Christopher Schindler, Jack Payne, Michael Hefele, Chris Lowe and Rajiv van La Parra all arriving but strikerNakhi Wells is likely to still be their key man. The Terriers meanwhile faded badly towards the end of the campaign winning just 1 of their final 8 games.


The hosts shipped 31 home goals last season, while they finished the season by shipping two goals in defeats to Bolton and Rotherham two of the bottom three in their final five home games. Meanwhile, Huddersfield forward Karlan Grant got up and running for the season with a strike in the last game, which builds on the preseason hype around him. The Rs may have made a positive start, but they still conceded at a Stoke side who are far from the most clinical attack in the division.

He has really taken over where Hogan left off and his brace at the City Ground on Tuesday means he has now scored 7 goals in his last 10 appearances. He is likely to be their biggest goal threat again here and you can back Vibe to score anytime at 6/4, which looks to offer value. One man who has stepped up to the plate is Lasse Vibe.

Huddersfield are the pretty clear favourites to win this with the bookies but Brentford will feel they have every chance given what happened when these sides met on this ground three months ago. They may warm to the task of Championship football but in the short-term, Wagner may have changed too much too soon and this could go a similar way to the last meeting. The Londoners are certainly the more settled team and with so many new signings, many of whom are very young, Huddersfield are taking quite a big risk.

Mark Warburtons side are tough to get a handle on, but their opening day win under a highly-rated manager does promise good things for the future. The Rs have been one of the busiest sides in preseason, which has seen pundits placing them all over the place in predicted tables. QPR pulled off one of the opening days big surprises, as they claimed a victory at playoff hopefuls Stoke. Can they follow up that victory by claiming three points when they host recently-relegated Huddersfield in their first home game of the new campaign?

La Liga

They were against Burton and Wigan, two of the leagues lowest scorers, and Brentford will ask many more questions than those sides. However, Huddersfield have also scored in 8 of their last 9 away league games and have only failed to score in 14% of their Championship matches this term. The Terriers have kept just 2 clean sheets in their last 11 away league games.

Huddersfield Town are ranked on the 3rd place in the standings with 68 points, 46 goals scored and 39 goals received this season in English League Championship.In their last match they won against Aston Villa. Huddersfield Town lost only one match from the previous 5 played before this event with Brentford.The attacking skills of Huddersfield Town are moderate, they won 3events from the last 5 played.

The defender plays for Huddersfield Town, but he used to play for the likes of Manchester City and Tranmere Rovers during his youth career as well. Tommy Smith is an English player who was born in Warrington on 14 April, 1992. His main position is right back and it is no surprise he has yet to score for the Terriers, speaking of league games.
