Cardiff vs Derby Prediction & Betting tips
The second English league is really tough. No decisions have been made three matchdays before the end. The promotion race is open. The table cellar is still exciting and the playoff places are also very popular. Cardiff City and Derby County are hoping to win a slot in the playoffs to get into the Premier League this way.
Cardiff has the better cards right now. The Welsh are in sixth place in the championship table, which is enough for one season extension. But it is still very tight. The upcoming opponent Derby County is only three points behind in tenth place. Up to the Blackburn Rovers in twelfth place, the climb is still an issue.
In the direct duel between Cardiff and Derby County, the forecast of the bookmakers tested by the betting base goes slightly towards home win. However, the Rams could in turn draw an equal three away from the Welsh. A defeat for Derby County should be the end of all dreams for the Rams.
Both clubs are under pressure. Due to the constellation in the table, Coach Phillip Cocu’s team has the pressure to win. Goals seem to be guaranteed in this match, then the Rams have never played 0-0 away. The recent results of both teams suggest that Cardiff and Derby County bet on goals from both teams.
In general, the Bluebirds are attested to a certain strength at home. In the home table, Neil Harris’ team is seventh. For months, however, the Welsh people have been delivering poorly at home. Cardiff City have won only two of their last eleven home games. If the relegation from the Premier League gambles away direct ascent, then possibly in their own stadium.
The Bluebirds still have everything in their own hands, but Neil Harris’ team has been challenged in the last three games. Goals should definitely be scored, as both teams scored in almost 60 percent of Cardiff’s games.
Between Cardiff and Derby County it makes sense to check the odds for goals from both clubs. Last Friday, however, the Welsh suffered a 0-2 defeat in the top game at Fulham. Overall, it was a deserved away defeat in which the Bluebirds didn’t score, which is unusual for this team.
On Tuesday, Robert Glatzel should slip back into the starting line-up, who was in good shape after the restart and scored four times. Josh Murphy and Lee Tomlin are also candidates who can provide a breath of fresh air on the offensive. Overall, Neil Harris should have access to his entire squad.
We can no longer afford to lose to get into the playoffs. I think we still need seven points from three games.
The Rams could be doomed that Phillip Cocu’s team is too undisciplined. In the six games after the forced break, Derby County received a total of four red cards. With a frequent shortage and the associated locks, it can hardly be more successful. If it wasn’t enough to qualify for the playoffs, the reason would have to be looked for.
The Rams only scored one point from the last three games. For that, things went very well last away. Derby have won three of their last four away games. The current state of Phillip Cocu’s team is therefore a double-edged sword. Due to the drop in performance in the last few games, there is a tendency between Cardiff and Derby County to predict a home win.
Last Saturday there was also a home bust against Brentford. The interim compensation by Jason Knight was not enough. In the end, the Rams lost 1: 3.
Keeper Ben Hamer made another capital mistake. Nevertheless, Phillip Cocu made it clear that his goalkeeper in Cardiff will guard the case again. Tom Lawrence and youngster Louis Sibley have already served their locks after being sent off. The lack of top scorer Martyn Waghorn is still difficult to compensate for.
