Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds claim a fourth win in five home games?

Cardiff City’s results have certainly improved over the past month or so. Since a woeful 1-0 defeat to Coventry City at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium on November 28th, City have won five of their following seven.

Cardiff were beaten by league leaders Norwich City last time out, losing 2-0 at Carrow Road. However, a few days before that, Neil Harris’ men edged a five-goal thriller against Birmingham City at the Cardiff City Stadium. The Welsh side have been decent at home of late, winning three of their past four.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 2010 GMT, Thursday 24 December)

This will be another stern test for the Bluebirds, but Cardiff are capable of beating any team on their day, especially on their own patch. After last weekend’s loss at Norwich, can Harris’ men get back to winning ways on Boxing Day?

Brentford Preview – Bees to extend unbeaten run to 14?

Brentford are on an incredible 13-game unbeaten run in the Championship. Since a 3-2 loss to Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium back in October, Thomas Frank’s troops are undefeated in 13 Championship matches, winning six and drawing seven.

After holding high-flying Watford to a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road, Brentford beat fellow promotion hopefuls Reading at the Brentford Community Stadium last weekend. The Bees blew the Royals away in the first 30 minutes, with Bryan Mbeumo (2) and Mathias Jensen getting the first-half goals in the eventual 3-1 win.

These two sides played out a thriller at the Cardiff City Stadium back in February. Goals from Luca Radic and Bryan Mbeumo put the away team 2-0 up after just 21 minutes. However, Cardiff were level by the break, with Junior Hoilett and Joe Ralls netting – the game went on to finish 2-2. At Griffin Park, Brentford edged a tight affair 2-1.


Key Facts – Cardiff City vs Brentford Betting Tip

  • Cardiff have won five of their previous seven
  • Brentford are unbeaten in their last 13 Championship matches
  • The Bees have won just one of their past six meetings with the Bluebirds


Brentford have only ever picked up one league win at the Cardiff City Stadium. The Bluebirds are not an easy nut to crack on their own patch, and we fancy this to end in a score draw in the Welsh capital. Four of the Bees’ eight league draws have ended 1-1. The 1-1 draw here is priced at 5/1.

Ivan Toney is the Championship’s top scorer at Christmas. Since making the switch to the Brentford Community Stadium in the summer, Toney has been an instant hit with the Bees supporters, netting a staggering 16 league goals already. Back the Brentford striker to score first in this one at 3/1.
