Swansea City Preview – Will the Swans secure an historic win?

Steve Cooper’s Swansea City have had a sensational season so far. After missing out in the play-offs last year, the Swans will be determined to go one better and win promotion to the Premier League via the automatic route this campaign.

However, the Swans’ automatic promotion hopes were dealt a huge blow in midweek. In one of their worst performances of the season, Swansea were easily beaten by Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, with the home team sealing a deserved 3-0 win. That stopped a run of three wins and a draw from four.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff clean sheet

(odds taken 1111 GMT, Friday 19 March)

Swansea are not an easy nut to crack at the Liberty, collecting an impressive 38 points on their own patch. Only Norwich City and Watford – the current top two – have picked up more home points up until now. The home win on Saturday is available at 31/20.

Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds avoid defeat in Swansea?

Cardiff City have been incredibly hard to beat under new boss Mick McCarthy. Since the former Republic of Ireland manager took charge of Wales’ capital club, the Bluebirds have lost just one of 13. They have won seven and drawn five of the other 12.

Cardiff have slipped away from the play-offs after just one win in five. Since a thumping 4-0 home victory over Derby County, McCarthy’s troops have drawn with Huddersfield Town and Stoke City, and were beaten by Watford.

Swansea City vs Cardiff City Betting Advice

Matches between Swansea and Cardiff are usually tight and tense affairs. However, the Swans dominated at the Cardiff City Stadium when the rivals clashed in the Welsh capital back in December. Jamal Lowe was Swansea’s hero, netting a brace in the 2-0 win. Joe Ralls was sent off for the hosts in the 67th minute.


Key Facts – Swansea City vs Cardiff City Betting Tip

  • Cardiff have not beaten Swansea since a Premier League meeting back in November 2013
  • The Swans are unbeaten in four against their bitter rivals, winning two and drawing two
  • Both teams failed to win in midweek


Swansea’s preparation for this big game was not ideal, as they were thumped at Bournemouth on Tuesday. Cardiff have struggled for goals of late, and this will no doubt be a close one in Swansea.

We fancy the rivals to play out a nervous draw at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday evening. The draw is priced at 11/5.

Cardiff have failed to score against Swansea since Steven Caulker’s header gave them a 1-0 home victory in the first ever Premier League meeting between the two back in 2013. They drew 0-0 at the Cardiff City Stadium in January of last season, and the goalless draw here is available at 15/2.
