In the first match Sheffield Wednesday made a bet on the defense, giving Huddersfield the advantage.

These two sides played out a goalless draw at Huddersfield in the first leg.

Wagner's men nearly broke through midway though the first half, as Wells flicked the ball on for Brown, whose close-range shot clipped the top of the bar on its way over, but that was a rare first-half opening.

Wednesday failed to register a single shot on target during the match but Carvalhal would have been the happier of the two managers after the game.

“Both teams are similar, I thought we were the better side, but we just couldnt get that goal. Under 2.5 goals is priced at just 4/7 (1.57).

The Terriers, who finished the regular season in fifth, bossed the entire 90 minutes but were unable to find an elusive goal, with Izzy Brown clipping the crossbar in the first half and Nahki Wells twice testing Keiren Westwood in the Wednesday net. "When you have the chance to go up with Huddersfield then it makes it bigger".

"It depends on the performance and how the game goes on", Wagner told reporters.

"We all know that Sheffield Wednesday is a big club, with massive support". When we played against them they didn't have too many opportunities so I think we can control them, especially at home when we play our game.

We now play at home in front of our fans as a final.

“Im not anxious about what they will do.

Having played against Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund before, the intense atmosphere of a high-stakes Yorkshire derby at Hillsborough holds no fear for Kachunga.

The winners will face either Reading or Fulham after they drew 1-1 at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Forestieri has been used sparingly since his return from a knee injury, but Carvalhal feels the forward can be the difference as they push for a place in the Premier League.
