Blackpool Preview – Can Pool make home advantage count?

After winning promotion from EFL League One via the play-off route last season, Neil Critchley’s Blackpool started life back in the Championship with a decent draw on the road. Shane Lavery netted in injury time at Ashton Gate to give the Tangerines a share of the spoils.

Staying in the Championship beyond this season will be Blackpool’s ultimate ambition. On paper, they have a more than capable squad. Also, Critchley has done an excellent job since taking over at Bloomfield Road from Liverpool’s youth setup.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1812 GMT, Thursday 12 August)

Blackpool will no doubt cause the big boys one or two problems throughout the course of this Championship season. After battling in Bristol to get a point last weekend, can the Seasiders upset Cardiff this Saturday? The bookies have the home win priced at 23/10.

Cardiff City Preview – Bluebirds to win on the road?

Mick McCarthy’s Cardiff City started their Championship campaign with a 1-1 home draw with Markus Schopp’s Barnsley. Marlon Pack gave the Bluebirds a second-half lead at the Cardiff City Stadium, but the Tykes bounced back to snatch a draw.

McCarthy did an outstanding job in the Welsh capital last season. City were languishing in 15th place when the former Republic of Ireland boss took over in January, but the Bluebirds went on to finish eighth, even sneaking into the top six at one point.

Blackpool vs Cardiff City Betting Advice

Cardiff won a five-goal thriller in the last meeting between the two back in April 2015. Eoin Doyle (2) and Joe Mason were the scorers for the Bluebirds in South Wales. However, Blackpool won the reverse meeting 1-0 at Bloomfield Road.

The Tangerines famously beat Cardiff in the 2010 Championship play-off final at Wembley Stadium. In doing so, Blackpool booked their place in the Premier League for the first and only time in the club’s history.


Key Facts – Blackpool vs Cardiff City Betting Tip

  • Blackpool beat Cardiff in the 2010 Championship play-off final
  • Both sides started their league campaigns last weekend with 1-1 draws
  • Only Norwich City and Brentford picked up more away points than Cardiff in last term’s Championship


Blackpool will be desperate to make home advantage count in front of their own supporters, but Cardiff will be a tough nut to crack. The Bluebirds had the third best away record in last season’s Championship, and our money is going on the away win (5/4). The Cardiff triumph and both teams to score is available at 4/1.

Kieffer Moore started on the bench in Cardiff’s 1-1 draw last weekend. As the Wales international edges closer to full fitness after his UEFA Euro 2020 excursions, he could get a starting berth at Bloomfield Road. Moore is priced at 4/1 to open the scoring here.
