Sheffield Utd vs Cardiff: Top Free Betting Tips

Following a defeat against league leaders Burnley, Sheffield United lined up against Cardiff City at Bramall Lane on Saturday, 15 April. The Bluebirds make an appearance in this game after suffering a defeat against Sunderland in Championship.

Match Result Prediction: Sheffield Utd to Win

Sheffield United have registered four victories in the last five league affairs and lost the only one against Burnley. The Blades have also been consistent at Bramall Lane and won four of the last five matches, including against Tottenham and Watford. On the other hand, Cardiff City has earned only one victory in the last five Championship matches and tasted three defeats in that course. In the H2Hs, the Blades emerged victorious in each of the previous three meetings with Cardiff. Therefore, we back Sheffield United to fancy their chances at the end of this game.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: No

Sheffield United have scored in four of the previous five games and claimed two clean sheets in the course. The Blades have also kept clean sheets against Wigan Athletic, Tottenham and Watford in the duration of the previous five games at Bramall Lane. Cardiff City has struggled on the scoring end and failed to rattle the net in three of the previous five fixtures on the road. Sheffield United also prevented the Bluebirds from scoring in the last two H2H meetings. Hence, we expect only the Blades strong enough to get on the score sheet in this encounter.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Sheffield Utd

Sheffield United have been limited to only one goal per game in three of the previous five league games. On the other hand, the Bluebirds have also conceded only six goals in the same number of fixtures away from Cardiff City Stadium. Adding more to this, Sheffield United have also scored only one goal in three of the last four meetings with the upcoming rivals. In light of the present situation, we predict the Blades to secure a narrow margin of 1-0 at the end of the ninety minutes.

Sheffield Utd vs Cardiff: Form, Recent Games, and News

Sheffield Utd Preview

Burnley’s Berg Gudmundsson’s brace saw Sheffield United lose three points with a 2-0 scoreline. The defeat has shortened the Blades' gap from third-positioned Luton to five points, however, have an advantage of a game in hand. Head coach Paul Heckingbottom’s intention to bring the team back to winning form will be marred by three fitness concerns in this game.

Players to Watch: Oliver McBurnie (Sheffield United)

Sheffield United are almost promoted and they need to win just a couple of games until the end. This is the perfect opportunity for them against a weak team and Oliver McBurnie – one of their top goalscorers – will have a lot of chances to score. He is also their most-booked player this season, so you can also opt for the yellow card here.

Cardiff Preview

The Bluebirds returned to their losing sequence in the last game with a defeat against Sunderland. Dennis Cirkin’s only goal for the Black Cats in the 60th minute was enough to suffer Cardiff a 0-1 defeat. Jamilu Collins and Callum Robinson won’t feature in the upcoming game when the team is desperate to distance themselves from the drop zone.

Players to Watch: Cedric Kipre (Cardiff)

Cardiff are a very aggressive team. They never fail to get a few yellow cards throughout the matches and there is nobody else that has had this many. Cedric Kipre has received 10 bookings in 37 matches this season. Against one of the best attacking teams, he will have a lot of work and there is a good chance for a new booking here.
