Our prediction for this match:
Forest Green will be aiming to keep their 100% record in pre-season intact when they take on Forest Green on Tuesday evening. The Bluebirds kicked off their pre-season with a routine 5-0 win over Bath City, with the team losing to Cambridge United (0-2) in their second outing. Mick McCarthy’s troops then shared the spoils with the U’s in yet another 30-minute game. Cardiff City aim to return to winning ways in pre-season and they will not have a better chance than this to do so.
Summer signing James Collins will be one of the men to watch in the away team. The Green Army, on the other hand, faced no difficulties in back-to-back wins over Melksham and Yate Town, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Tuesday’s friendly. Anyhow, over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered as both sides will be with guards down this time out.
Highlighted Player (Dominic Bernard):
After spending his youth career at Tredworth Tigers and Birmingham City, Dom Bernard signed a professional deal with the Blues. However, he did not see any game action with Birmingham City at the senior level as he was instantly sent on loan at Aldershot Town.
After making 35 appearances for the Shots in the league, Dom Bernard joined Forest Green in the summer of 2019. He made his debut with the Green Army against Oldham Athletic on the opening day of the 2019/2020 season. Bernard, who quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Forest Green, has one cap with the Republic of Ireland U18 team while making two appearances with the U17 team.
He was born in Gloucester, England on March 29, 1997, and he wears the number 3 shirt at Forest Green. His main position is right back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a centre-back as well.
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.
