Huddersfield vs Bournemouth in the Championship on March 19, 2022 – Odds & Prediction

Huddersfield vs Bournemouth in the Championship on March 19, 2022 – Odds & Prediction

Things are heating up in the race for promotion to the Premier League, with Huddersfield Town and Bournemouth two of the main protagonists scrapping it out at the top of the Championship.

The two sides are separated by just a nose in second and third, respectively, so a win for either at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon could do wonders for their prospects of returning to the summit of English football.

Neither Huddersfield nor Bournemouth are used to losing matches this season – both have lost on average just one in five Championship matches throughout the 2021-22 season – and come into the weekend in fine form.

Will it be the Terriers or the Cherries flexing their muscles in the fight for the automatic promotion spots?

Huddersfield to beat Bournemouth

We’re finding it hard to disregard the form of Huddersfield, especially on their home turf.

Carlos Coberan has masterminded nine wins in their last 15 at the John Smith’s Stadium, losing just the once to a rampant Middlesbrough outfit last November.

Their overall form is extremely consistent too, bettered only by runaway Championship leaders Fulham across the last five, ten, fifteen and twenty matches, underlining the job the Spanish coach has undertaken since joining the Terriers in 2020.

Bournemouth are no shrinking violets away from home – in fact, they have the second-best away record in the Championship – but recent losses to Preston North End and Luton Town have highlighted a couple of cracks.

We’re licking our lips at 13/8 (bet365) for the home win here – as well as with all of the best sports betting websites – as Huddersfield continue their sensation form on home soil

Huddersfield Form, squad news, opinion

The Terriers have enjoyed an extremely fruitful winter.

Coberan’s side went unbeaten in the Championship throughout December, January and February, sprinting into the money spots at the top of the division after a fairly sluggish start.

Danny Ward has been a big catalyst for this success, bagging 13 goals and two assists in the league this campaign, including a recent brace away to West Bromwich Albion.

The 30-year-old leads the Huddersfield line with Sorba Thomas and the pair have helped guide their side to eight goals in their last five home matches.

18th and 20th-placed finishes in the last two seasons mean the upturn in form this campaign has been a little bit of a shock in west Yorkshire, but Coberan looks capable of grabbing this chance with both hands.

Bournemouth form, squad news, opinion

After a flying start to their Championship return, Scott Parker’s Cherries became stuck in the mud over winter, allowing the chasing pack to nip at their heels in the race for promotion.

They’re still in a dominant position in the league – importantly with games in hand over all of their rivals – sitting second and owning the best defensive record in the Championship.

Dominic Solanke has been a huge reason for Bournemouth’s successful campaign.

The former Chelsea and Liverpool protege has scored 21 goals this season, only bettered by Fulham’s runaway-train-striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Bournemouth have lost just four times on the road this season, conceding a stubborn 13 goals across 17 away days.

History

Bournemouth waltzed to a 3-0 home win against Huddersfield when these two sides last met in October, stretching their run to five wins on the spin against the Terriers.

In fact, Huddersfield have won just one of their last 10 meetings, this coming in a Premier League tie at the John Smith’s Stadium back in 2018.

But historically, this meeting couldn’t be much tighter. They share 19 wins apiece with 18 draws across their 49 years of meetings

About the Venue

The Kirklees Stadium – known as the John Smith’s Stadium – is a 24,000 capacity stadium in Huddersfield, and has been the home of Huddersfield Town since 1994.

The stadium also plays host to Rugby League side Huddersfield Giants.

Conclusion

Saturday’s match should prove to be a real indicator of Huddersfield’s genuine credentials in their race for a Premier League return.

Their form over the past few months has been close to perfection – especially on home soil – and Bournemouth’s recent habit of losing points away from home could prove to be the case again here.

Goals have sometimes been hard to come by for Huddersfield in patches this season, but if Danny Ward is fit and firing, then there is no reason why the hosts can’t put a marker down in west Yorkshire.

The home win is priced so well and it would be easy to argue that a win is more important to Huddersfield than Bournemouth considering the games in hand Scott Parker’s side have up their sleeve.
