Birmingham City Team News
Another tough season for Birmingham fans. Seventh in a row. They sacked the manager during the summer because of the ownership change. But that change in ownership has never happened. The new manager John Eustace come in and he has no experience in working in professional football. Everyone in Birmingham is expecting that change in ownership and no one knows when that will happen or if it will happen at all.
A couple of good players leave the club and after a 20th place finish, last season Birmingham is one of the relegation candidates this season. Because of all chaos in the club.
They open the season with a draw away to Luton which is a great result for them because Luton is one of the candidates for the top 6.
Last season Birmingham had problems with defence and they conceded 75 goals which made their defence one of the worst in the league. That is one of the problems that Eustace must address.
Huddersfield Town Team News
Huddersfield finished 3rd last season but everyone is pretty sure that they are very from repeating that this season. They lost a couple of key players in the summer and the major loss is their manager Carlos Corberan. He leaves the club days before the season is about to start because of disagreements with the board. The board put his assistant Danny Schofield as permanent manager.
Huddersfield lost to Burnley in the first round and they play terribly in that game. They deserve to concede more than one goal and they barely have one solid chance in the game.
This team has no star in it and Corberan managed to create one very compact side. The question is will it Danny Schofield manage to repeat that?
No one sees Huddersfield as a candidate for the top 6, not even as a team who can finish in the top 12. The expectation is that this team will slip into the second part of the table.
In the last 10 games, Huddersfield won three and Birmingham two games. Five games were finished with a draw. Eight of the last 10 games were finished with under 2.5 goals.
Team news and injuries
Birmingham City: Krystian Bielik is injured.
Huddersfield Town: David Kasumu and Matt Pearson are injured.
Birmingham City vs. Huddersfield Town Prediction
We expect one very tough game where both teams are looking for points. The expectation is that both teams can be in a trouble this season and both want to take this opportunity to take some points from this game.
Their H2H suggest that we can expect a tough game with a few goals and from what we see from their first games in the season we can agree with that.
Prediction: Under 2.5 goals
