Luton Town vs Huddersfield: prediction for the EFL Championship playoffs
It has been 30 years since Luton Town have played in the top tier of English football. The team had disappointing results over the previous few years, but this season the Hatters managed to secure their spot in the top six.
The team collected 75 points from 21 victories and 12 draws. Luton Town lost to Fulham (0:7) before securing a narrow victory over Reding (1:0). Osho and Steer are unavailable for Nathan Jones today.
Huddersfield finished in third place in the Championship after accumulating 82 points on 23 wins and 13 draws. This season, Carlos Corberan's charges have been excellent on offense and have tallied 64 goals.
The Terriers defeated Coventry City (2:1) and Bristol City (2:0) in their last two matches. The visitors have a long list of injured players - O'Brien, Thomas, Pearson, Aarons, Vallejo, and Schofield are all out.
3 of the last 4 head-to-head games were tied.
In 3 of the last 5 head-to-head games, this bet won.
This bet played in 2 of Huddersfield's last 4 away games.
It is likely that both teams will be very careful on defense in the first playoff game. The outcome of this game may be decided by just one mistake - we do not expect a high-scoring thriller. Take the under.
Our prediction — total under 2.5 goals
Teams are evenly matched, and 3 of their last 4 head-to-head matches have been tied. We predict another close match and a draw in the first leg.
Second bet — draw
