Cardiff News and Form

Tottenham gave Cardiff a severe beating on New Year’s Day, the Bluebirds losing 3-0 at home. That leaves Cardiff with only a W1 D1 L3 record in their last five games played. Overall this season at home in the top flight they have done alright under the circumstances. They have posted a W4 D1 L6 record on the board. They have taken a win in three of their last five on home turf in the EPL as well. In total, they have scored 13 goals on home soil but have conceded over two goals per game.

Cardiff have two clean sheets at home only this season in the top flight and 73% of their league home fixtures have made it above the 2.5 goal line. That is down to their leaky defence of course. In none of their home games in the league, this season have Cardiff been leading at the halftime break, having a D7 L4 halftime record. They have conceded 61% of goals at home in the first period of matches. Cardiff have only opened the scoring in one league home game this season. 72% of all their league points earned this season have been at home.

Huddersfield News and Form

Huddersfield lost a crucial scrap with Burnley last time out and they are still rooted to the foot of the table with only ten points. They are now only W1 D2 L7 on their top-flight travels this term. They have lost each of their last eight Premier League games, home and away combined. In total, they have only come up with the eight goals on their travels this season. Their defence hasn’t done a good job as they have conceded over two goals per away game on average. They start the weekend eight points from safety and they are running out of time already.

Huddersfield are currently on a four-match losing streak away from home and they have taken one away clean sheet all term. A third of their away games have gone over 3.5 goals and the Terriers have shipped the first goal in all but three of their away games this season. Only once this season have they been leading at the halftime break away from home. The only side to have picked up fewer away points than Huddersfield have done this season is Fulham. The Terriers though are the lowest scoring team in the top flight.

Cardiff to win: The Bluebirds have to make the most of this opportunity on home soil here. Their home form shows that they should have enough in the bank to land what could be a very important three points come the end of the season.
