Club football resumes all across Europe after a two-week hiatus due to the international break.

Here's our short preview of the match.
🏟 Derby County vs Watford mini preview
Derby County have made a horrific start to the 2020/21 season, with one win after four games in the Championship leaving them languishing at 20th on the table. An uninspired attack coupled with a vulnerable defense has contributed to the Rams’ struggles, with Phillip Cocu’s future now up in the air; captain Wayne Rooney is being touted to be the incumbent’s replacement.
Watford, on the other hand, have set about returning to the Premier League after just one season in the wilderness. With Vladimir Ivic now at the helm at Vicarage Road, the Hertfordshire-based club has made a decent start to the 2020/21 season, losing just one of their four Championship outings. Having said that, the sole defeat came in their most recent encounter, against Reading.
Derby County and Watford played out a 2-2 draw the last time they faced off against each other at Pride Park Stadium in a league clash, back in April 2015.
