Sheffield Wed – Huddersfield: 17th May 2017
Favorite to qualify for the final
The host team made a solid season under the command of Carlos Carvalhal. This was to be expected because the club’s leadership has spent an important sum on transfers in the summer, and the Hillsborough group is aiming for promotion in the Premier League.
Sheffield Wed took the 4th place and ended the season, 6 wins in the last 7 matches. The only game he did not want was the last stage, when the Portuguese coach decided to rest the important players, so the “owls” lost to Fulham 1-2 on their own.
Low sports form
The guest band finished last season in 19th place, but David Wagner made a sensational championship on the Huddersfield bench ending in the top 6. Moreover, the Kirklees Stadium team hoped for one of the first two places . With only three wins in the last 10 stages, the visiting team lost the fight for the lead, ending on the 5th
