Cardiff City FC vs Chelsea FC – Betting Tips for the game
Cardiff were able to register a crucial 2-0 victory over West Ham to pick up a first victory in four matches and also put them closer towards safety. This was only the second home win in the last six games for Cardiff.
Chelsea’s momentum once again was destroyed with the team losing 2-0 against Everton at Goodison Park. Even though this has been a bogey ground for Chelsea in recent years, this defeat ended a sequence of five games without a defeat for the team.
The reverse fixture witnessed Chelsea getting a comfortable 4-1 victory over Cardiff in the days when Maurizio Sarri’s team was flying high in the table. Chelsea were able to get a close 2-1 victory in the last visit to Cardiff City Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a success for Chelsea.
Cardiff City FC vs Chelsea FC – Match odds
The international break came as a way for Chelsea to take their minds off the defeat, which is one of the few blemishes for the team since the home defeat against Manchester United in the middle of February, against Everton. Since then, the Blues have been coming up with much improved performances. Cardiff have been able to pick up six out of their eight league victories at home. The importance of a home game will be stressed by Neil Warnock, but there is a vast difference in terms of quality. Our preview expects Chelsea to pick up a fifth successive win over Cardiff.
Cardiff City vs Chelsea draw odds: 4.20
Cardiff win odds: 9.00
Cardiff City FC vs Chelsea FC – Correct Score odds
Chelsea have been struggling in terms of away matches with Maurizio Sarri stubborn to not change his starting line-up or tactics even in the face of these struggles. Yet, Cardiff are quite poor defensive and have been conceding 10 goals in the last four games. Against such opposition, our correct score prediction expects Chelsea to pick up a 2-1 win.
Cardiff City FC vs Chelsea FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been more than 2.5 goals in four out of the last five away games involving Chelsea, while Cardiff are not trailing excessively in this regard with three out of the last five games between the two clubs producing over 2.5 goals. Our total goals prediction would go with more than 2.5 goals considering the poor defence of the home team.
Cardiff City FC vs Chelsea FC – First Goalscorer odds
Gonzalo Higuain has only scored goals against the teams in the relegation zone of the Premier League – Fulham and Huddersfield Town. The Argentine may retain this trend by getting a goal against Cardiff and his ability to excel in the box will be a valuable quality. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Gonzalo Higuain.
