Cardiff News and Form

The Bluebirds suffered a 2-0 defeat at Wolves last weekend to make it three straight league defeats for them. They are only at W2 D1 L5 in their last eight. Relegation concerns still haunt them quite a bit. There has not been any home joy from them either because they have suffered back to back defeats in South Wales in the EPL. Cardiff have posted a W5 D2 L8 home record for the season. They have conceded a total of eight goals in their last two home games along and that in games against Watford and Everton. Cardiff have produced only the one goal in their last three top-flight games.

Cardiff have scored 16 goals in their 15 home games this season, which isn’t high but they haven’t been helped out by their defence. That is where they are falling down. Cardiff have conceded over two goals per home game this campaign. The Bluebirds have managed to produced just the one win in their last six on home soil, which was a 2-0 success over Bournemouth. That success over the Cherries is one of four clean sheets at home that Cardiff have taken in the EPL this season. 67% of Cardiff’s home league games have gone above 2.5 goals. The Welsh club have conceded at least two goals in each of their three league games, home and away.

West Ham News and Form

West Ham picked up a 2-0 home victory over Newcastle last weekend and that was their second win in three (L1). They have only managed the three wins though in their last eight Premier League games, home and away (D2 L3). Out on their travels, this season West Ham have posted a W4 D3 L7 record. There hasn’t been much of a return from them lately on the road. The Irons have one point from the last fifteen available to them away from home. They scored just the one goal in those five games as well.

So they are not a reliable away team by any means. They have only averaged exactly one goal per away game as well. West Ham have conceded an average of 1.5 per game. Less than half of their away fixtures have gone over the 2.5 goal line. The Hammers have taken one clean sheet only on their travels this season, but they have not managed to earn one in any of their last six. Of the goals they have conceded away from home, 63% of them have been after the halftime break.

Cardiff v West Ham Predictions

Draw: Hard to pick a winner out of these because of West Ham not having any away form behind them at all. The Bluebirds need everything they can get and they may be able to grind out a point in this one.
