Cardiff City Preview – Will the Bluebirds go through?

Mick McCarthy’s Cardiff City kicked off their 2021-22 Championship season with a 1-1 home draw with Barnsley. The Bluebirds took a second-half lead in front of over 17,000 fans at the Cardiff City Stadium, with Marlon Pack scoring nine minutes into the second period. However, the Tykes levelled in the 69th minute to snatch a draw.

Cardiff reached the final of this competition back in 2012, eventually losing out to Liverpool in a penalty shootout after a thrilling final at Wembley Stadium. However, they have a pretty poor League Cup record in recent times. Last season, they lost 3-0 in the first round to Northampton Town.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 1217 GMT, Monday 9 August)

Before the tricky visit to Blackpool in the Championship this weekend, Cardiff will be looking to get a win under their belt. City should see off League Two opposition in midweek.

Sutton United Preview – Can the League Two side cause an upset?

Sutton United were promoted from the National League last season, winning the division to go up automatically. Staying in the Football League will be the priority for Matt Gray’s men, but can they cause an almighty cup upset in South Wales on Tuesday?

Sutton’s first ever League Two match ended in defeat last weekend. The Yellows narrowly lost out to Forest Green Rovers at The New Lawn, with the home team’s winner coming in injury time. Next up, Sutton welcome Salford City to Gander Green Lane at the weekend.

Cardiff were not at their best on Saturday in the 1-1 draw with Barnsley. However, Pack opened the scoring and McCarthy’s men will have been disappointed not to have gone on and got the win.

Sutton will still be riding on the crest of a wave after their stunning promotion last season, but the hard work has already started. The Yellows would love to catch Cardiff cold, but the Bluebirds should sail to victory on their own patch.
