Our prediction for this Championship match:
A highly-anticipated South Wales derby between Cardiff City and Swansea City will bring down the curtain on Saturday’s program in the Championship round 6. The Bluebirds aim to recover from a 3-2 loss to Ipswich Town, with the team eyeing their only second win of the process. Midfielder Josh Bowler remains in the recovery room, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Swans, on the other hand, are desperate to record their first win of the process. Since both sides are likely to adopt an attack-oriented approach in the Wales derby, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Liam Walsh and Steven Benda are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team, whereas forward Josh Ginnelly is pushing for a recall to the starting XI. In their last meeting in the Championship Swansea defeated Cardiff 3-2.
