Our prediction for this Championship match:
West Bromwich Albion and Cardiff City square off against each other at the Hawthorns in the closing match of Tuesday’s program. The Baggies are eager to stay in the playoffs berth and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Bluebirds. Daryl Dike suffered an injury in a 2-2 draw with Ipswich Town, with John Swift likely to step up, while Semi Ajayi is still on international duty.
The Welsh outfit, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Preston, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the home side. Midfielder Callum ODowda remains on the sidelines with injury, with Mark McGunness missing out as well. When the two teams met at Cardiff City Stadium WBA defeated Cardiff City thanks to Jeremy Sarmiento’s goal, which goes in favour of our prediction.
Highlighted Team (Cardiff):
Cardiff City are a Welsh football club that compete in the English second tier (Championship). In 2009 they moved from Ninian Park to Cardiff City Stadium, the venue that officially holds 33,280 spectators.
The Bluebirds played their first ever Premier League match on 18 August, 2013, but they were beaten by West Ham United (0-2) on their debut in the English top flight. However, a week later Fraizer Campbell (two goals) and Aron Gunnarson helped Cardiff City record their first ever win in the Premier League.
The Bluebirds outplayed Manchester City back then, but they eventually dropped to the Championship at the end of the season. Fellow Welsh outfit Swansea City are considered Cardiff’s fiercest rivals and the two teams take on each other in the South Wales derby.
The colour of Cardiff City’s home kit is blue, whilst they wear red shirts and shorts when playing on the travels.
