In that match, Huddersfield Town had 41% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 4 on target. For Huddersfield Town, the scorers were Tom Lees (9') and Duane Holmes (73'). Hull City had 9 shots at goal with 2 of them on target.
A common feature of more recent Huddersfield Town games is the number of results with a nil in them.
From their previous six matches leading up to this one, in 5 of them a bet on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a loser.
Heading into this contest, Huddersfield Town are winless against Birmingham City in their previous 2 league games.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against West Bromwich Albion in Championship competition, Birmingham City will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Birmingham City managed 33% possession and 10 shots at goal with 1 on target. West Bromwich Albion got 11 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Karlan Grant (75') scored for West Bromwich Albion.
Looking at their form, and Birmingham City have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 13 goals overall. At the back, Birmingham City have some weaknesses to address. Such a trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, though.
Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
RANHEIM V AALESUNDS
Ranheim will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 2-1 OBOS-ligaen defeat last time out to Jerv.
Ranheim have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, netting in one hundred percent of their last 6 matches.
They have managed to rack up 15 during that time and have conceded a total of 14.
Going into this contest, Ranheim have not been beaten in their last 4 home league matches.
Aalesunds FK go into this match following on from a 3-0 OBOS-ligaen win against Sogndal in their most recent game.

The overall average goals scored per match in that spell is 4.83, with the number of goals averaged by Aalesunds FK being 3.5. Putting that to one side, we will just have to wait and see if that trend will be sustained here in this match or not.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
RIJEKA V LOKOMOTIV ZAGREB
Rijeka go into this match following a 3-3 Prva Liga drawn result versus Dinamo Zagreb.
In that game, Rijeka managed 37% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 4 on target. For Rijeka, the scorers were Josip Drmić (7', 38') and Darko Velkovski (41'). At the other end, Dinamo Zagreb got 15 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Bruno Petković (58', 65') and Komnen Andrić (82') scored for Dinamo Zagreb.
It’s not been often in recent times where Rijeka have kept a clean sheet. In fact, Rijeka have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, leaking 13 goals during that time. That kind of trend isn’t assured to be continued into this match, however.
In their previous game, Lokomotiva Zagreb drew 2-2 in the Prva Liga tie with Hrvatski Dragovoljac.
In that game, Lokomotiva Zagreb had 53% possession and 19 shots on goal with 4 on target. For Lokomotiva Zagreb, the goals were scored by Sandro Kulenović (9') and Lukas Kačavenda (17'). On the other side, Hrvatski Dragovoljac had 12 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Benedik Mioč (30') and Andrej Lukić (58') scored for Hrvatski Dragovoljac.
The stats don’t lie, and Lokomotiva Zagreb have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 7 goals in total. Defensively, Lokomotiva Zagreb can certainly do much better.
Prediction: Both team to score
