Bournemouth vs Cardiff City
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 24 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium.
The Bluebirds are easily the best team in the entire competition at present. They are on a terrific winning run, and are scoring goals by loads. They are currently placed seventh in the table, and they will be desperate to get into the top-six of the table.
And just as if it was written, they are pitted against the sixth-placed Cherries, who are going through an inconsistent run.
Jonathan Woodgate’s men are also conceding goals quite a lot these days, and are on a downward trajectory of the league table.
Going on, Mick McCarthy’s men have also scored the most number of goals so far in the tournament, and they need a surplus of just three points to break into the top-most tier.
By the looks of things, expect the in-form Cardiff to deliver a winning performance against the inconsistent Bournemouth.

Judging recent form and momentum, Cardiff seems to have the edge over Bournemouth,and could be counted on to deliver a winning performance.
