Sheffield Wednesday vs Cardiff City top free betting tips

The third round of the FA Cup pitting Sheffield Wednesday against Cardiff City will be an interesting encounter. Here is how we have tipped the teams to perform against each other on matchday:

North Stand
The North Stand at Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough Stadium.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

We can see both teams finding the back of the net in this clash. If we are being honest, we predict this clash to be a tough match but one that will be a very close battle. Two of the previous six encounters have seen both sides fail to score and when taking a look at recent form, there is a modest scoring run on both ends. Sheffield Wednesday won the last two and found the back of the net in each of their last five home games.

On the other hand, Cardiff won once and lost as many times in the last two. The visitors scored in 3 of their last 4 matches.

Match result prediction: Draw

Despite the big contrast in recent form, we predict a draw for this match. The FA Cup will be a major test for the second-division teams and it is quite likely that a winner will be hard to come by, especially if you look at the recent forms of these teams. They have been inconsistent and the scoring run witnessed in recent outings is not something to rely on.

Correct score prediction: 1-1 Draw

In the final Sheffield Wednesday vs Cardiff prediction, we have settled on a draw with a scoreline of 1-1. This will not be an easy game and with both teams looking to progress beyond the single-leg FA third round, a good chance this match could drag onto the penultimate. We expect at least a goal from both ends but a win is likely to take a little more toiling and sweating.
