The latest edition of the EFL Championship is all set to begin this Friday, with Huddersfield Town hosting Burnley for the first match of the season.
After playing some great football throughout the last season, Huddersfield fans were left disappointed at the end, as the Terriers narrowly missed out on promotion to the top flight. Finishing third on the points table, Huddersfield missed out on automatic promotion and was pitted against Nottingham Forest in the play-off Finals. However, an own goal by Colwill denied them the opportunity to compete on England’s biggest football stage.
The fans are further disappointed with the departure of key players like Lewis O’Brien and Harry Toffolo. Many responsibilities now rest on the shoulders of newly appointed coach Danny Schofield, who was brought in after the sudden departure of Carlos Corberan, to inject a fresh dose of energy within the team.
From the outset of the previous season of the English Premier League, Burnley looked out of form and had to wait till matchweek 9 for its first victory of the season. A string of poor performances led to the sacking of manager Sean Dyche, who was at the helm of the Turf Moor-based outfit for close to a decade. However, this failed to change the fortunes of the Clarets, as they finished 18th on the points table, condemning them to their first relegation since the 2015-16 season.
With Vincent Kompany taking over as the full-time coach, he has brought in a lot of fresh faces, including Arijanet Muric, Josh Cullen, CJ Egan-Riley, and Ian Maatsen. With a considerable overhaul in the squad, fans will be pretty excited for a fresh start for their team.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Huddersfield Town vs Burnley F. C. EFL Championship 2022-23. The match is going to be played at The John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield, on 29th July 2023.
With new managers at the helm for both clubs, the match promises to hold many surprises for the fans in the form of squad selection and strategies. Huddersfield played out a draw against Bolton in a club friendly last weekend and is expected to field a more or less unchanged squad in this match. Matty Pearson sustained an injury in that game and may be replaced by Rarmani Edmonds-Green. Burnley has an injury-free squad, and Kompany will be able to churn his players at will.
While Huddersfield is playing with home advantage, the new additions in the freshly relegated visitors may work to their advantage, and they hold an edge here.
Bet on a Burnley win.
3 of the last 4 league matches between the two clubs have seen fewer than 3 goals scored in them. 3 of the last 4 matches for Huddersfield have also ended with less than 2.5 goals, while Burnley managed to score just 34 goals in the entire previous season.
Burnley has strengthened its defenses during the transfer window and has also added Manchester City goalkeeper Arijanet Muric to its lineup. This means they might be able to stop the hosts from scoring in this game. We think the odds justify the risk here.
