Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds return to winning ways?

Cardiff City signed off for the international break in high spirits, as an Aden Flint goal gave the Bluebirds a 1-0 win over rivals Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. Victory in Swansea was their first in four games.

However, Cardiff were brought back down to earth with a 1-0 home reverse to Nottingham Forest on Good Friday. Then on Monday, Mick McCarthy’s men were embarrassed at Sheffield Wednesday, who were bottom before kick off. The struggling Owls tore City apart, netting five without reply in what was one of the standout performances of the season in the Championship.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1203 GMT, Friday 9 April)

McCarthy’s men are now eight points behind the final play-off spot with just six games to go. However, after playing Blackburn this weekend, Cardiff’s next fixture is against Reading, who currently sit sixth.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Will Rovers’ winless run stretch to seven?

Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn Rovers flirted with the play-offs in the early months, but Rovers have had a miserable time since February. They actually started 2021 in fine fashion, winning three and drawing one of four, but five straight defeats followed.

Since back-to-back 1-0 wins over Middlesbrough and Luton Town, Blackburn have mustered up just one Championship victory in their following 14 games. During that woeful run, the Blue and Whites have suffered a staggering nine league defeats.

After drawing three and losing three of their last six, Rovers could really do with a positive result at the weekend. However, they are the underdogs in the Welsh capital, with the bookies pricing the away win at 13/5.


Cardiff City vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Advice

Blackburn stunned the Bluebirds in this fixture last term, coming from behind on two occasions to leave with a 3-2 win. That was their first victory over Cardiff for 15 years, though.

The game at Ewood Park earlier this season ended in a forgettable 0-0 draw. Incredibly, six of the last nine meetings have ended all square.


Key Facts – Cardiff City vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tip

  • Cardiff have lost two on the bounce for the first time under McCarthy
  • Blackburn have won just one game since January
  • Six of the last nine Cardiff vs Blackburn meetings have ended in draws


With Cardiff’s play-off dreams now hanging by a thread after back-to-back defeats, the Welsh side will be desperate for all three points on their own patch this Saturday. Although Blackburn will be no pushovers, City should see off a side who have picked up just one league win since January.

Fixtures between these two are often tight affairs, and this one is likely to be no different. With that in mind, take a punt on the hosts to win by one goal, which is available at 3/1. We also like the look of the Cardiff win and both teams to score at 7/2.
