EFL Cup : NCAFC vs Watford

If you just look at it, the fans are inclined to the scenario that Watford will beat Newport County in the match tonight in the third round of the British League Cup 2020/21.

Understandable because Watford is a team that excels in reputation and class when they are playing in the English First Division.  Meanwhile, the opponent is just a group playing in the English third division.

But if you calmly analyze the current performances of both opponents, it is the new Newport County team that is the wise choice.  Remember, they are performing well and have the added advantage of playing at home.

 If counted in all competitions in this season, Newport County has just lost 1 match with the minimum score 0-1 against Cheltenham Town, the rest are 1 draw and 3 wins.

Investors should pay special attention that Newport County has beaten formidable rivals Cambridge United or the team playing in the first class of England, Swansea in the English League Cup this season.

On the other side of the pitch, Watford made many fans worried with erratic performance.  Specifically, they only won 2, drew 2 and lost 3 in the last 7 matches.  Particularly on away field, "Herds of wasps" had just 11 consecutive matches without knowing the smell of victory - draw 4 and lost 7 matches.
