Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds make home advantage count?

Cardiff City head into this one having lost four in a row. After winning 2-1 at Reading in early April, the Bluebirds have suffered back-to-back defeats to Hull City, Luton Town, Sheffield United and Middlesbrough. Prior to that, they had won four of six.

A huge rebuilding job at the Cardiff City Stadium will start at the end of the final day of this season. A whole host of players are out of contract in the Welsh capital, and plenty of those will leave in the upcoming months. Several are expected to arrive in the opposite direction.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff to win & both teams to score

After eight defeats in a row at the end of Mick McCarthy’s tenure, staying up was the main priority. In that respect, Steve Morison has passed the test with ease. However, Cardiff must come back stronger next season.

Birmingham City Preview – Will the Blues secure a rare away win?

Like their opponents on Saturday, Birmingham City have also had a pretty miserable season in the Championship. Lee Bowyer’s boys have suffered 20 defeats and picked up just 11 wins. They head to South Wales winless in four.

Bowyer demanded a response from his players after three bad defeats in a row, which included a 6-1 hammering at Blackpool. To be fair, they showed plenty of fighting spirit against promotion chasers Millwall last weekend, holding the plucky Lions to a 2-2 draw at St Andrew’s.

Cardiff City vs Birmingham City Betting Advice

These two teams put on a show when they met at St Andrew’s two weeks before Christmas. Efforts from Troy Deeney and Ivan Sunjic gave the Blues a 2-0 half-time lead. However, Cardiff rallied in the second period and rescued a point, with their second goal coming in injury time.

The Bluebirds did the double over Birmingham in the 2020-21 Championship campaign, scoring seven goals along the way. A year ago, the club from the Welsh capital picked up a 4-0 win at St Andrew’s.


Key Facts – Cardiff City vs Birmingham City Betting Tip

  • Cardiff have suffered four successive defeats
  • Birmingham have taken just one point from their last four
  • The Bluebirds are unbeaten in six against Birmingham (four wins, two draws)


Both teams are in bad form ahead of this lowly Championship clash, but Cardiff could make home advantage count on Saturday. It is likely to be close on the scoreline, so take a punt on the hosts to win by one goal at 11/4.

Cardiff’s last home win was a 2-1 success over Stoke City on 16th March. A repeat scoreline on Saturday is available at 15/2.
