The Clarets (7th) and Yellow Army (8th) find themselves in the top eight places of the Premier League, the first time that these clubs have both been within the top eight of the top flight this late in a season.
R. de Andrade has been involved in seven goals in seven Premier League away appearances for Watford this season (four goals, three assists).
