Sheffield Utd vs Preston by Mudhara_9er
Sheffield enter this match off a 2-0 over Swindon, in a match key players were spared, while Preston come off a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Crawley, some may feel this will give Sheffield the most motivation and belief that they can claim a ticket to the next round but this is the cup and i doubt Preston will come into this match with less motivation.
Sheffield will find joy in playing at home where they have a current run of 6 undefeated matches, while Preston have proved to have a bumpy time on the road. The last time these two play at Sheffield the home side won 2-1 and will be hoping to repeat that result tonight.
Both sides have attackers capable of findkng the back of the net, and i doubt any will want to settle with defence, that is why i back btts, Sheffield are at home and will want to put in a good performance so i expect them to be more aggressive then they were in the 1st leg, while this aggressiveness will surely open up play for Preston.
Sheffield have 2 clean sheets from their last 5 home matches, 3 of these matches ended with btts and over, while Preston have score in 4/5 matches on the road.
Both sides average above 2 goals per match.
This being the FA Cup i expect both sides to go all in, especially with Man Utd expected to meet the winner, both sides have everything to play for, and i'm sure that a goal in the first half see this match end with btts and over.
