Cardiff City vs Norwich City
England – League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 28 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff.
Cardiff City returned to the elite class of the English football after four years thanks to the runners-up finish in the previous term of the Championship, but they are finding it tough to handle the higher division teams at the start of the new season. The Bluebirds are struggling badly for goals at the start of the new campaign and they are currently the only Premier League side to have failed to score after three rounds. Can they build the momentum with the League Cup success on Tuesday evening when Norwich City come to visit Cardiff City Stadium?
The visitors showed plenty of defensive holes in a demolishing 0-3 defeat to Leeds United on Saturday afternoon and they’ll come into this with just four points in their pockets after five games of the new Championship campaign. The promotional dreams may have already vanished for Daniel Farke and his troops who look to be much weaker compared to the last couple of season. Nonetheless, can they at least match the fine success they’ve had in the League Cup in the most recent period?
Cardiff City vs Norwich City: Head-to-head
Norwich City lead the head to head tie by three wins, but it’s the Bluebirds who have dominated this match-up in the most recent history.
Cardiff City took the maximum six points from past term meetings with the Canaries in the Championship, winning by two goals difference on both occasions.
Three or more goals were seen in five of last seven head to head affairs.
Cardiff City vs Norwich City: Prediction
The hosts may be struggling for goals at the start of the new season, but their defensive line looked rock solid as they kept their net untouched in last two Premier League games. Knowing they easily won last two H2H games with the Canaries and that the visitors come into this in low spirits after falling to the Peacocks 0-3 at home at the weekend, we’ll shoot for the home win at the odds of 1.95.
Farke’s side is just the perfect opposition for the Bluebirds to boost up their confidence in the final third and we expect the hosts to finally shine up front and back two or more goals on the evening. You can back such scenario at the odds of 1.90.
