Cardiff News and Form

Things are looking a bit desperate for Cardiff now as they have lost five of their last six Premier League games. Last time out they suffered a 2-0 defeat at Manchester City. That is back-to-back defeats which they have taken currently. Away from home this season in the top flight Cardiff have picked up a record of only W2 D2 L11 so they have had a really tough time of things. Cardiff have lost four of their last five away games (W1). Their defence has conceded at an average of 1.9 goals per away game this season.

They have been really lightweight in front of goal as well, coming up with only nine goals on their travels. Because of their low scoring output, less than half of their road fixtures have gone over the 2.5 goals line this season. There have been just three away clean sheets for Cardiff all season, but they haven’t taken one in any of their last five away from home. Seven of Cardiff’s 11 away defeats this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. Cardiff have conceded 61% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures. Of the goals which they have scored on their travels this season eight of the nine have been in the second period of fixtures.
