- Our Tip – Huddersfield and BTTS @ 41/10 on 888Sport
What a prospect we have on our hands for the second leg.
After a hugely entertaining first leg in which both teams had to settle for a 1-1 draw, there is everything to play for as Huddersfield return to the John Smiths Stadium.
The Terries have been notoriously strong at home this season, particularly since the turn of the year and have collected 45 from their 23 games played on home turf.
While Luton ended their season with a 7-0 drubbing against champions Fulham, they finished with one of the best away records in the league and will certainly fancy their chances here after having plenty of chances to edge out in front last week.
However, we are tipping Huddersfield to get the win here in front of their home fans after an entertaining goal-abundant fixture.
Huddersfield vs Luton Predictions
- Our Prediction – 2-1 Huddersfield @ 17/2 on 888Sport
Our prediction for this one is a 2-1 win for Huddersfield.
The Terries won their home fixture against Luton with relative ease back in mid-April with a 2-0, and their home record highlights just how strong they are when they are back on familiar turf.
Despite this, Luton have improved leaps and bounds over the season and present a team brimming with confidence and quality in equal measure. We expect them to push Huddersfield to their limit on Monday night, but just fall short of passage to the play-off final.
