Cardiff vs Swansea: top free betting tips
After ending their winning sequence against Ipswich in the EFL Championship, Cardiff City went up against Swansea City in the next fixture. Both teams will be entering Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday, 16 September. The Swans come into this game after suffering three consecutive defeats in the league and EFL Cup.
Match result prediction: Cardiff to win
Swansea have been admirable against Coventry by winning four of the recent five H2Hs against them. But the Swans have gone winless in the previous five fixtures and tasted four defeats. On the other hand, Cardiff City have registered two victories in the last three matches. The Bluebirds have also resumed their winning form at Cardiff City Stadium by winning the last home game against Sheffield Wednesday. Hence, we expect Cardiff City to collect all three points in this game.
Total goals prediction: over 2.5 goals
All of the last four meetings between these two sides have gone Over 2.5 Goals. Cardiff City have found the back of the net nine times in the last five fixtures in the league and EFL Cup. On the other hand, Swansea scored seven goals in the same number of games. Additionally, both teams scored in each game during the aforestated period while keeping zero clean sheets. Therefore, we predict this game to go over 2.5 Goals at the end of the ninety minutes.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Cardiff
Cardiff City have scored two or more goals in each of the previous three games. But Swansea have lagged in this regard as they rattled the net just once in three of the last four matches. Defensively, the Swans conceded multiple goals in the last three matches. Whereas, the Blues conceded only one goal in two games during the aforementioned period. Given the current state of affairs, we imagine a 2-1 lead for Cardiff before the referee blows the full-time whistle in this game.
Cardiff vs Swansea: form, recent games, and news
The Bluebirds found a 0-2 lead within 52 minutes of the last game against Ipswich with goals by Aaron Ramsey and Joe Rolls. But Nathan Broadhead scored first for Ipswich and Freddie Ladapo notched a late brace to cost Cardiff all three points. The team’s preparation is slightly disrupted by an injury-related absence of Callum Robinson.
Swansea also failed to hold their 1-0 advantage of the first half against Bristol City and left the pitch empty-handed with a 1-2 defeat. Mark Sykes levelled the game for Bristol in the early second half and Sam Bell gave his team the lead in the 59th minute. A fully healthy squad seems the only positive factor for Birmingham during the current situation.
