Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds avoid a third straight home loss?

Cardiff City have had a mixed bag of results this season. Mick McCarthy will be looking for response from his players after three defeats in their last four league and cup matches. In midweek, the Welsh club were beaten at Coventry City.

Cardiff are usually a formidable home side, but the Bluebirds have lost two on the spin at the Cardiff City Stadium. After a 2-0 reverse to Brighton & Hove Albion in the second round of the EFL Cup, City lost 2-1 to rivals Bristol City in the Severnside derby before the international break.

Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 1127 GMT, Friday 17 September)

Cardiff have taken a respectable 11 points from their opening seven league games, but they were toothless in attack against the Sky Blues on Wednesday. Can they bounce back with a positive result against Bournemouth?

Bournemouth Preview – Cherries to move on to 18 points?

Scott Parker has made a strong start to life at the Vitality Stadium. Apart from a blip against Norwich City in the cup, Bournemouth have looked good this season. Ahead of the weekend games, the Cherries are one of just two teams in the Championship yet to lose.

After a hard-fought 2-1 home win over Queens Park Rangers in midweek, Bournemouth moved on to 15 points. They are joint second and just one point behind leaders Fulham. Overall, Parker’s men have won four and drawn three of their opening seven Championship encounters.

Cardiff City vs Bournemouth Betting Advice

Cardiff secured a 2-1 win at the Vitality Stadium when these two teams last met. The Bluebirds were in stunning form at the time, and goals from Sean Morrison and Kieffer Moore did the business at the Vitality. The reverse fixture at the Cardiff City Stadium ended in a 1-1 stalemate.

The pair also played in the 2018-19 Premier League season, with both teams picking up 2-0 home wins. Bournemouth have not won at Cardiff in a league meeting since a 2-1 victory at Ninian Park way back in March 2000.


Key Facts – Cardiff City vs Bournemouth Betting Tip

  • Cardiff are undefeated in three against Bournemouth
  • The Cherries are unbeaten in the league this term (four wins, three draws)
  • Bournemouth’s last league win at Cardiff was at Ninian Park in 2000


In-form Bournemouth are the favourites in Wales, but this really is a tough one to call. We fancy McCarthy’s men to bounce back with a home draw on Saturday. There is good value in the 1-1 draw at 5/1.

Kieffer Moore is slowly but surely getting back to 100% after a stop-start season up until now. The Wales international is available at 15/8 to score anytime in this one.
