After the boring 0-0 draw in the first game between these two teams, Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield are going to play their second leg game tonight on the legendary Hillsborough Stadium. We think that Sheffield are the better team and if we refer to the recent shape of Huddersfield they have no chances to go through. After all, this is football, moreover it is English football and we really do not know what to expect tonight.
Sheffield Wednesday News and Form
Sheffield are definitely now coming as favorites for this game as they did not lose the first one. They did not win the game as well, but at least they did not lose it and now everything will be in their hands as they are playing incredible well on their own stadium. They are having 80% wins when they are playing at home and against the team of Huddersfield they are even better in the past few seasons as they took some good and solid wins.
Huddersfield News and Form
Huddersfield is having huge problems before the beginning of this game. They are going to play without 3 regular players. This is going to be a loss for them but even with them, Huddersfield did not show that they are the better team and they try to continue to the final playoff. The team was playing good actually as they were defending very well, giving almost no chances to Sheffield to endanger the goal but still this was not enough and they kept the 0-0 draw and left everything to be decided on Hillsborough.
Head to head
The first leg game between these two teams finished 0-0 on the stadium of Huddersfield Town. In our first preview about this game we wrote down all the head to head games and we think that now it is useless to do it again. Just have in mind that from what we have written then, Sheffield Wednesday had a huge advantage. Of course, this is playoff and the h2h games have nothing in common but still the team from Sheffield has better chances.

It is going to be a good and interesting match. We expect a poor and difficult game. Maybe at the moment the team from Sheffield is one idea more closer to the final playoff where the team of Reading is waiting but they must first try to show better game. In the first leg the dominant factor was the team of Huddersfield which was normal as they were playing in front of their own fans, now everything will be different and believe me, if Sheffield are playing seriously, it will be really tough for Huddersfield to even score a goal here. Our pick will be Sheffield Wednesday to win tonight.
