In England, they return from the cup format to fighting in divisions. In that case, the championship will not return until Friday night. At that time, there will be a duel involving the first of the leaders of the current draw – Sheffield United. He hosts Hull – what will the Blades do? The editors of the website publish an individual forecast for the match on January 20, 2023.
Sheffield United are now looking extremely convincing
The Blades recently reached the Premier League and even stayed there for 2 seasons in a row. But as is often the case, after starting after the 2nd draw, the team almost made it to Division 1. A timely bet on Paul Heckingbottom helped. He already took the team to 5th place last season, but lost in the “joints” to future winners, Nottingham Forest. But now, continuing in the cup, they have managed to win 9 of their last 11 matchdays, including a 3-1 win at Stoke on 14 January.
Hull tries to break away from the danger zone
The Tigers were also quite recently a Premier League team. But now there is no hope that they will be able to return there – moreover, it was only in 2021 that they managed to return from Ligue 1. At the beginning, the team took 19th place. There were hopes for progress, but instead there was a difficult start for which Shota Arveladze paid with his position. After parting with the Georgian, the Turkish owners of the project bet on Liam Rosenior, a former footballer with almost no experience as a mentor. It still works, especially in winter. There was only 1 loss in the last 9 matches, and in the last 6 there were several victories with 4 draws.
Sheffield United haven’t lost against Hull in 6 straight matches. And already in September it turned out that they probably won 2-0 on the road.
