The home team generally plays 4-3-3, favoring a more leisurely style of play, attacking through the central zone. The three arrows pointed at the opponent’s goal will be Fosu, Forss and Mbeumo and the player responsible for defining and leading the attacks of his team is the English Josh Dasilva. It is possible that Dasilva, Baptiste and Norgaard will perform in the most central area of the court. Coach Thomas Frank must have all the pieces available for this match.
Huddersfield Town :
The away team comes to this 2 nd round, after the defeat in its debut in the league, against Norwich City, by (0‑1). This is a stronger team with the support of its fans, since in the last 30 matches records 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses as a visitor; against 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses in his stadium. In their last 10 away games Huddersfield Town has 2 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses.
Huddersfield come into this game unmotivated, after a 1-0 loss at home to Norwich. The visiting team generally acts in a 4-3-3, favoring offensive transitions and channeling their attacks through the flanks. The two arrows pointed at the opponent’s goal will be Diakhaby and Bacuna, and the most offensive reference is the Englishman Josh Koroma. One of the great gaps of this team is in the defensive moment, since the vast majority of the time reveals weaknesses in this particular. Coach Carlos Corberán must have all the players available for this match.
