Cardiff City vs Brighton: Preview and Prediction

Cardiff City vs Brighton
England League Championship
Date: Saturday, 3rd December, 2016.
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.

Cardiff City have dropped down to the relegation zone as they lost 3-1 to Aston Villa last weekend. They have already lost 10 of their 18 matches this season and managed 18 points from 5 wins and 3 draws. The stats clearly show that Cardiff were not able to find any momentum this season. They are coming on the back of three defeats in their last four games, with a lone win coming against QPR.

Brighton and Hove Albion are currently second in the Championship and are slowly closing in on the league leaders Newcastle United at a 2 point gap. They defeated Fulham 2-1 in a thrilling encounter which saw them coming from behind to steal all three points. Brighton are on a 10 match unbeaten run in the league and look good for at least a play-off spot at the end of current season.

Cardiff City vs Brighton: Head-to-head stats

Three of the last four games between these two sides are draw with Cardiff winning one, which is the latest meeting between these two sides last season. Also in 8 fixtures between them since 2011, there are 5 draws, while Brighton won twice. Brighton’s two wins during the period have come inside their last 4 visits to Cardiff.

Cardiff City vs Brighton: Prediction

Brighton with their current form are too good for any side in the Championship. They are an equally capable side in home and away matches. It seems like they have found a knack of scoring goals at crucial moments. Cardiff are a side under tremendous pressure due to their position inside the relegation zone. It is unlikely that they can stop a determined Brighton on Saturday evening.
