Two sides with a victorious opening in the Championship face off this weekend in the Championship. Relegated Watford will travel to Hillsborough Stadium to take on Sheffield Wednesday this Saturday with kickoff at 5 pm.
Sheffield Wednesday started their already troubled 2020-21 season campaign on a high note with a 2-0 win over Cardiff City. The win saw the side move up minus nine points in the table. Watford started their season with a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough.
The 2-0 win for Owls was a professional away win for the side who struggled with the away performances last season. Garry Monk was proud of his side who took their chances early in the game. The side is fighting against -12 points that pitches them at the bottom of the relegation table.
While travelling this weekend, Wednesday holds an impressive first home league match record in their last 12 seasons. The only defeat on the home opening match for the side comes in the 2013-14 season against Burnley. The coronavirus pandemic bounds to change the scenario without any fans in the stands.
New boss Vladimir Ivic tasted his first taste of win in the Championship side. The side will be looking for back to back victories as they head to take on Wednesday. The Hornets hold three wins in their past encounters.
