South Wales rivals Cardiff City and Swansea City meet at the Cardiff City Stadium this Saturday afternoon in the EFL Championship. The Swans could make history by becoming the first team to do a league double in the South Wales derby. The Bluebirds will be doing everything in their power to stop that from happening on their own patch. This is often a spicy affair, and we should be in for some fireworks in the Welsh capital. Check out the latest odds and best tips in our in-depth betting preview.

Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds make home advantage count?

Steve Morison has done a great job at Cardiff City since inheriting the managerial reigns. The ex-Wales striker took over from the sacked Mick McCarthy, who lost eight in a row at the end of his tenure in the Welsh capital.

Morison has turned Cardiff into a decent outfit, and the Bluebirds head into this South Wales derby having won seven of their last 12 in the Championship. City are unbeaten in four, winning three and drawing one.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff to be winning at half time

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1205 GMT, Friday 1 April)

Cardiff have the extra incentive of going above their rivals with three points on Saturday. The hosts are the favourites in this one at 5/4.

Swansea City Preview – Will the Swans become the first team to do the double?

Russell Martin has made a mixed start to his managerial career at Swansea City. The Swans can beat anyone on their day, but after back-to-back play-off campaigns, City have spent most of this season in the bottom half of the Championship table. Overall, Swansea have picked up 13 wins, suffered 15 defeats and have drawn nine of 37.

The Swans make the short trip to Cardiff unbeaten in two, drawing 0-0 with Birmingham City last time out after edging past Peterborough United in a five-goal thriller. They have won half of their last six but have suffered defeats to Fulham and Blackpool during that run.

Cardiff City vs Swansea City Betting Advice

Swansea embarrassed Cardiff when the rivals clashed at the Stadium back in October. McCarthy’s men were poor in the 3-0 defeat, with Jamie Paterson, Joel Piroe and Jake Bidwell on target for the Swans.

Cardiff’s last home win over Swansea came in a Premier League meeting back in 2013. Steven Caulker scored the only goal of the game in the Welsh capital.


Key Facts – Cardiff City vs Swansea City Betting Tip

Cardiff have been in great form of late, dropping just two points from the last 12 available. Swansea have recently picked up good away wins at West Bromwich Albion and Peterborough, but we fancy the Bluebirds in this one. The home win is priced at 5/4.

Jordan Hugill has had a successful loan spell at Cardiff since joining in January, scoring in wins over Nottingham Forest, Peterborough and Stoke City. You can get 3/1 for Hugill to net in a Cardiff victory on Saturday.
