Neil Harris’ Cardiff City welcome Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough to the Cardiff City Stadium for an EFL Championship fixture on Saturday. Warnock did an outstanding job during his time in South Wales, but the Bluebirds will be plotting his downfall this weekend. Cardiff have yet to win at home this term, but the Welsh team are the favourites in this one. We have the best prices and predictions.

Cardiff City Preview – Bluebirds to finally win at home?

Neil Harris’ Cardiff City have had an indifferent season so far. At the Cardiff City Stadium, which is so often a fortress, the Bluebirds have lost two and drawn one, taking a mere point from nine on the table. However, they did hold high-flying Bournemouth to a draw in the Welsh capital in midweek.

Cardiff have been a completely different animal away from home, racking up seven points from a possible nine. The Bluebirds have beaten Nottingham Forest and Preston North End without conceding as well as battling to a 0-0 with Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 0934 GMT, Friday 23 October)

Cardiff will no doubt be a force in this division if they can sort out their home form, starting with three points against Middlesbrough on Saturday. The Bluebirds edged this fixture last season by a goal to nil, and the team from South Wales would take any kind of victory in this clash.

Middlesbrough Preview – Boro to leave South Wales with zero points?

Neil Warnock’s teams have been notoriously hard to beat over the years, and that is exactly what Middlesbrough have become since losing at Watford on the opening weekend of the season.

After their narrow loss at Vicarage Road, Boro are unbeaten in five Championship games. Okay, three of those have been draws, but the Teessiders have picked up good wins over Barnsley and Bristol City along the way.

In midweek, Middlesbrough became the first team to beat Dean Holden’s Bristol City in this season’s Championship, as George Saville scored the only goal in a 1-0 win at Ashton Gate. This Boro outfit are more than capable of mixing it with the big boys this term. Can they make it back-to-back wins with three points in South Wales on Saturday?


Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough Betting Advice

Cardiff did the double over Middlesbrough last season. An own goal gave the Bluebirds a 1-0 win in a pretty drab affair in South Wales in September 2019. However, City were dazzling on the road at the Riverside, with Josh Murphy (2) and Sean Morrison scoring in an impressive 3-1 win in July.


Key Facts – Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough Betting Tip

  • Cardiff have failed to win any of their opening three league games at home, losing two and drawing one
  • Middlesbrough are unbeaten in league action since losing to Watford on the opening weekend
  • Cardiff have won each of their last four against Boro


As we touched on, Cardiff have struggled at the Cardiff City Stadium this season. No fans in the stadium has certainly not helped their cause, but Harris’ men should be able to see off Middlesbrough on home soil this Saturday.

Boro will no doubt play their part, so take a punt on the Cardiff win and both teams to score at 9/2. We also like the look of the hosts to be winning at half time and full time, which is available at 3/1.
