Cardiff vs Brentford Prediction & Match Preview

Cardiff City vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 26 December 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.

These are two in-form teams from the Championship. The Bees are one of the most consistent in the whole league, and are placed fourth in the table.

They have scored the third-most number of goals in the league, and are just three points away from taking the second spot in standings for themselves.

They are also one of the only three teams in the whole tournament to stay unbeaten in their last five away fixtures.

Meanwhile, the Bluebirds are on a winning run, barring their encounters against toppers Norwich, and the third-placed Swansea.

They have also been scoring high number of goals in recent home games, and also have done so all through their h2h history with this opponent at this venue.

In fact, majority of h2h clashes have had goals in plenty, and it’s logical to assume the same will happen this weekend as well, considering all these stats.

Cardiff vs Brentford: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The latest clash had ended in a 2-2 draw.
  • 15 of the previous 18 encounters had goals from both teams.
  • 14 of the former 18 meetings also had three or more goals.
  • Since 2001, the hosts have scored two or more goals in every single game at this ground.
  • Since 1999, only twice have the visitors failed to score at this venue.

Cardiff vs Brentford: Prediction

Neil Harris’s men lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Norwich. In the meantime, Thomas Frank’s men registered a 3-1 win at home against Reading.

Going on, the Bluebirds scored two or more goals in five of their preceding eight fixtures, and scored three or more goals in four of their last seven appearances at home.

On the other hand, their counterparts are on a long 14-match unbeaten run, and they had scored two or more goals in seven of their last eleven away fixtures. Note that they were also unbeaten in ten of their preceding eleven matches on the road.

In addition, 15 of the past 18 overall h2h clashes, and seven of the last nine at this stadium had goals from both teams.

Moreover, 14 of the former 18 overall h2h meetings had three or more goals, and at this venue, the hosts had scored two or more goals in every such fixture since 2001.

Taking these observations into account, it’s more than obvious that there’s high chance that the game will be a high-scoring affair.
