Aston Villa vs Cardiff City: Preview and Predictions

Aron Wright - April 9, 2018

Aston Villa vs Cardiff City
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 10 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham).

One of the most interesting ties on the Matchday is set to be played at Villa Park where the Lions will be hoping to reduce the gap between themselves and the second-placed Cardiff City down to four points. The direct promotion looks to be far away for Aston Villa after somewhat of a drop in form, but their victory would significantly help Fulham who are only two points shy of the Bluebirds in second.

The visitors have been on a run of eight straight wins in the Championship before a tough schedule saw them take just one point in last two league outings. Neil Warnock’s side have struggled to find goals against the likes of Sheffield United and Wolverhampton Wanderers (only one goal in these two games).

Such poor attacking form could likely come to an end on Tuesday against Villa who have been struggling with the form recently. The hosts shipped three in the weekend’s away loss at Norwich City. They’ve won just one of last five league ties netting more than once in only one of these games in the process. Given that Cardiff City have not conceded two or more goals in any of last seven away games in the competition, we do believe the visitors have what it takes for the result here.

Aston Villa vs Cardiff City: Head-to-head
