Watford – Coventry Match Prediction | 27-08-2019 14:45

Not only do they get the chance to make a positive impact in this match but a strong performance can see them force their way back into the starting XI. Coventry have made a decent start to the season and wont simply roll over but Watford should be able to put their defensive woes to one side and win this one without conceding. Therefore, we recommend backing the Watford 2-0 correct score at 13/2 with RedZone.

Its been anything but a pleasing start to the new campaign for Watford, whove struggled so much that manager Javi Gracia, who led the Hornets to the FA Cup final back in May, is under pressure. This home match against League One opposition presents the Premier League side with the chance to build momentum ahead of their next league assignment.

In the betting, Watford to Score Over 2.5 Goals stands out as a viable option. For all its been a poor start to the campaign for the Hornets, this match represents an excellent chance for them to find their scoring boots. Coventry havent been easy to breach in League One, but Mark Robins is likely to rest key players, what with a promotion push being the main aim, while they did recently concede three goals (and 2.06 expected goals) away against Portsmouth. Moreover, when Watford faced lower-level opposition last term, they created a pleasing 3.18 expected goals for.

Really excited to join this family club and to see whats ahead in this new chapter. Thank you to the Watford fans for the great reception since Ive arrived, along with the boys and staff at the club who have been great with me ?. What a feeling getting back on the pitch yesterday in the Premier League! See you at The Vic soon ??

On that evidence, Gracias side need to tighten up defensively. Both first and second time out, Watford were a little bit unfortunate. On both of those occasions, Watford bettered their opponents in terms of expected goals.
