Wolves vs Cardiff Prediction & Betting tips
Wolverhampton Wanderes and Cardiff City finished last season as numbers one and two in the Championship. This weekend, the two PhD students face each other at the Molineux.
As a PhD student, Wolverhampton performs a lot better than Cardiff City. De Wolves are in the Premier League in eighth place and will do everything they can to recover the seventh place from Watford in the coming weeks. That Wolverhampton is now in eighth place has everything to do with the results of the Wolves in the last three league matches. In it, Wolverhampton took only two points, and that is what manager Nuno Espírito Santo has to worry about. Certainly because the Wolves took in those three games against teams that are all in the right-hand row.
After losing the points against Newcastle United (1-1) and AFC Bournemouth (1-1), Wolverhampton went to visit Huddersfield Town this week: 1-0. The Wolves only had to cash in the extra time of the match and Wolverhampton also owed that to himself: the Wolves defended very weakly at the John Smith’s Stadium. Offensively it all looked okay with the team of Nuno, but the Wolves did not make a shot between the posts. Fairly striking when you consider that Huddersfield Town has the most defensive defense of the Premier League after Fulham and Cardiff City.
At Cardiff City they travel with fear and trembling to West Midlands and that has everything to do with the last two games of The Bluebirds. Last week Friday, the team of Neil Warnock played at home against Watford and Cardiff City lost 1-5 of The Hornets. Last Wednesday, the Cardiff City players were able to recover in the home game with Everton, but The Bluebirds only allowed the damage to increase. Cardiff City lost 0-3 to The Toffees and Neil Etheridge had to score eight goals in two games. Not that the Filipino goalkeeper can do much about that, because the Cardiff City defenders in the past two games have stumbled.
Warnock, however, refuses to throw in the towel and the English manager says: Cardiff City can still maintain itself. It seems that The Bluebirds together with Southampton and Brighton & Hove Albion have to decide who degrades to the Championship together with Fulham and Huddersfield Town. To be honest, I think Southampton and Brighton make a better impression and I do not rule out that the Premier League adventure for Cardiff City will be over after this season. On the other hand, Cardiff City recently won with 1-2 from Southampton and 2-0 from Bournemouth, but the fact that The Bluebirds had to take eight goals against Watford and Everton also says something.
