Cardiff vs Coventry: Top free betting tips
The Bluebirds made little work of Swansea's challenge with a 2-0 victory in Round 6. They now turn their attention towards Coventry who are on a run of four successive stalemates in the Championship.
Match result prediction: Draw
Cardiff have won three of their last four matches. Their defeat in this period was a five-goal thriller against Ipswich on the road. On the other hand, Coventry cannot get over the line with four draws in succession. Interstingly, their last encounter was also a draw game and we believe a similar conclusion in this meeting.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals
The last four matches between Cardiff and Coventry have been low-scoring affairs with less than three goals seen on each occasion. Three of Sky Blues' last four matches have also been low-scoring affairs. Cardiff's have been involved in high-scoring scorelines but their win over Swansea only saw two goals and we do believe this will not be a high-wire affair and should conclude with under 2.5 goals.
Correct score prediction: 1-1 draw
Only one of Coventry's seven competitive fixtures in the 2023/24 campaign has seen them fail to hit the back of the net. Cardiff have not gone through this heartache and scored every time they have gone on the pitch. The visiting Sky Blues seeing two of their last four matches conclude with 1-1 scorelines, and we expect it to be the concluding scorecard as both sides continue their goalscoring form.
Cardiff vs Coventry: Form, recent games, and news
Cardiff City preview
The Bluebirds find themselves in the bottom half of the points table and only have themselves to blame. While goals have flown from the boots of their attackers, the backline has struggled to live up to their billing. They need to stop the inflow of goals that can be attributed to two of their three defeats in the Championship. The leadership of Aaron Ramsey will come into play and we believe he will play a starring role after their in the South Wales derby.
Coventry City preview
The Sky Blues fans will be ruing the missed opportunities in the 2023/23 campaign. They have only tasted a single defeat so far and have a league-high four draws to their name. While they have accumulated points bit by bit, failure to convert them into wins has seen them settle in a midtable position rather than fight for promotion slots from the get-go. It will be interesting how they keep up their antics and set themselves for the initial exchanges.
