Cardiff City vs Burton Albion
England – Championship
Date: Friday, 30 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium (Cardiff).
The Bluebirds will have a great opportunity to keep their amazing streak going in Friday when they host the relegation strugglers Burton Albion in Cardiff. Neil Warnock’s men have made a massive step towards earning the direct promotion to the elite class with the run of seven consecutive victories in the competition.
Such a formidable streak has helped them go seven points off Fulham in third and they even have a game in hand on most of the playoffs sides. The Welsh outfit can even push for the title at the end of the campaign since the table-toppers Wolverhampton Wanderers are only six points away (and the Bluebirds have a game in hand on them as well).
The hosts do not have a single talisman in the final third, but their wins come as a consequence of a phenomenal teamwork. They have four men with seven or more goals so far in the season and they’ve bagged three goals in each of last two victories over Birmingham City and Brentford.
The story is completely opposite with the Brewers who will have a mountain to climb in order to save the second class status come May. The visitors have had huge issues with the efficiency in the final third in recent set of matches netting just one in last five league affairs. This was only enough for a single point along the way.
Cardiff City vs Burton Albion: Head-to-head
Cardiff City will seek for the revenge here after Burton Albion eliminated them in the League Cup back in August last year.
The league clash saw the Bluebirds snatch a 0-1 victory at Pirelli Stadium.
Overall, Cardiff City have won three and lost two of five meetings with the Brewers.
Cardiff City vs Burton Albion: Prediction
Everything suggests a one-sided contest on Saturday and we’d genuinely be shocked to see anything else but a commanding victory for the Bluebirds in front of the home crowd here.
Also, since Burton Albion have been struggling badly for goals lately, we will alternatively take Cardiff City to keep a clean sheet at 1.72.
