Huddersfield v Man City Match Prediction:

Huddersfield to win at 6/1 with Paddy Power


Huddersfield v Man City Best Bet:

Both teams to score and Huddersfield win at 10/1 with Bet365


Huddersfield v Man City Past Meetings

These two have met over 70 times in league and cup, but the last time was a 1-1 draw in the English Division One in 2000. Shaun Goater was on the scoresheet that day.


Huddersfield v Man City Stats

The Terriers have amassed 35 league points at home this season – the Championship’s joint best tally. Over 2.5 goals happened in both of their previous FA Cup matches.

City have won seven of 12 matches on their league travels, and they’ve also won their last two FA Cup rounds away from home. Over 2.5 goals happened in both of their previous FA Cup matches.


Huddersfield Team News

Chelsea loanee Kasey Palmer isn’t available due to a hamstring injury which has ruled him out for a further seven weeks. Captain Jonathan Hogg is a doubt after getting injured last week against QPR


Man City Team News

Pep Guardiola has the luxury of almost a fully-fit squad to choose from. He’ll likely make a few changes ahead of his side’s midweek Champions League match with Monaco.


Reasons for Huddersfield v Man City betting tips

Whilst neither side would turn down FA Cup glory, it certainly isn’t their priority this season. Huddersfield are on the verge of what would be an incredible feat – the possibility of playoffs and promotion to the Premier League.

They ended last season just outside the Championship relegation places, so it’s not unfair to rule them this season’s surprise package. They currently sit third in the league, with a game in hand over playoff rivals Leeds and Reading. The 35 points they’ve accrued from home matches is a joint record tally with Brighton, albeit they’ve played an extra home match than the Seagulls.

At City, meanwhile, there seems to be more positivity at the club, especially after leapfrogging their top four rivals into second place. Away losses to Everton and Liverpool have been forgotten after four back-to-back wins.

Both sides rested key players in previous FA Cup rounds, and could do so again. Pep will have one eye on next Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Monaco. European glory probably tops his priorities with league success looking unlikely.

Whilst City certainly have strength in depth, this is a glamorous tie for the home side. There’ll be a good atmosphere at John Smith’s Stadium, and the home players will feel anything is possible given their recent form.

City have been knocked out of the last two FA Cups by Championship sides, and an in-form Huddersfield are certainly capable of producing a home win. You can back Wagner’s men at 6/1 with Paddy Power.

In seven of Huddersfield’s last eight home games, both sides have scored. You can get both teams to score at 7/10 with bet365, or go for gold, and get Huddersfield to win and both teams to score at 10/1.
