Cardiff vs Brentford Prediction

Cardiff slumped to defeat for the second time on the trot last week after Nottingham Forrest edged past them at home with a slender 1-0 scoreline. Despite recording as many shots on target as their foes in that clash, the hosts were just not clinical in their efforts, and deservedly finished the ninety minutes empty-handed.

Miserably, the home team are now without a win in their past three games in the Championship. At the moment, Cardiff are sitting eleventh on the ladder, six points adrift of their foes for the weekend.

On the other hand, Brentford had their five-match unbeaten streak stopped in its tracks by Luton in their most recent clash on the road. The visitors failed to get things going in that latter matchup and had to make do with just a consolation goal at the last blast of the whistle.

Be that as it may, Brentford have stumbled just once away from home since the start of the new year, and have garnered eight points from a possible twelve so far.

In sharp contrast, Cardiff have come out on top in just one of their past eight games here. Taking into account that the hosts were also at the losing end in the reverse fixture of this clash, Brentford are sizing up to be the favorites in this one.

However, Cardiff have shared the spoils seven times at home this season, which is the joint-most by any side in the cluster. Considering that Brentford have also salvaged just a point three times on the road, it will be safer to back a draw no bet.

Furthermore, Cardiff’s backline have been sticking to their defensive duties with real gusto, especially at home. In fact, they have conceded just fifteen goals here, which is just two more than the lowest tally.

Meanwhile, Brentford have not been keen on racking up the goal scoring charts on the road. To be frank, they have scored more than two goals in just two of their past eight outings.

Since their previous h2h meeting here was also a low-scoring affair, expect goals to be scarce in this one too.
