Sheffield Utd vs Preston by Mudhara_9er

Sheffield come into tonight's FA Cup match as favourites to win, the side went all the way to the semi finals in the league cup but were elimated by premier league side Tottenham. Although they were eliminated the team proved their quality and strenght, tonight the face Preston whom like Sheffield reside in League 1, both sides are on the top of the table and will probably make the playoffs for promotion, but focus will be on the Cup tonight.


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.
