Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades bounce back with a big three points?

Sheffield United made a poor start to their season as they struggled to shrug off the Premier League blues. However, ever since Slavisa Jokanovic was replaced by Paul Heckingbottom, the Steel City club have gone from strength to strength. Heckingbottom has taken the Blades from the bottom half to the top six.

Sheffield United have struggled for wins recently, though, picking up just three from the last 11 league games. Since a 1-0 home win over Queens Park Rangers at the start of the month, United have taken just two points from a possible nine.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1556 GMT, Friday 22 April)

After no wins in three, Sheffield United will be desperate to get back to winning ways on Saturday. The home victory is available at 3/5.

Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds cause an upset?

Cardiff City looked to be heading for a relegation battle under Mick McCarthy. However, after eight straight defeats, McCarthy was sacked and replaced by Steve Morison. The former Wales international has turned the club’s fortunes around and fired them to safety.

Cardiff head to Sheffield in indifferent form, winning four, losing three and drawing one of their last eight. During that run, they were hammered at home by rivals Swansea City but have also picked up good away wins at QPR and Reading.

On their day, Cardiff are capable of giving anyone a good game in the Championship, and the Welsh side will be hoping to ruffle a few feathers in their remaining matches. Morison’s men are the underdogs here at 5/1.


Sheffield United vs Cardiff City Betting Advice

The game in the Welsh capital in December produced five goals and plenty of talking points. Sheffield United came from behind to win 3-2 at the Cardiff City Stadium, with Morgan Gibbs-White, Billy Sharp and David McGoldrick netting against the ten-man Bluebirds.

This will be the first meeting between the duo at Bramall Lane since April 2018 – Cardiff snatched a late point in that one thanks to Anthony Pilkington’s injury-time strike.


Key Facts – Sheffield United vs Cardiff City Betting Tip

  • Sheffield United are winless in three
  • Cardiff have lost three of their past four
  • Five goals were netted in the reverse match


Sheffield United are in the top six, but their form of late has been mediocre to say the least. However, three points on Saturday would do their play-off hopes the world of good.

Cardiff are unpredictable at present, but we can see Sheffield United taking the points on home soil. The pair played their part in a five-goal thriller in Wales in December, and we like the look of 11/4 for Sheffield United to win and both teams to score again.

Billy Sharp has netted 14 Championship goals this term, including one in the reverse game in Cardiff. The 36-year-old is priced at 9/2 to return to action and score the opening goal of this one.
