Cardiff vs Brentford: Preview and Prediction

Cardiff vs Brentford Match Preview 8th April 2017

Cardiff vs Brentford
England – The Championship
Date: Saturday, 8th April 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.

Cardiff City hosts Brentford in what looks to be a very entertaining fight for places in the middle of the table. Both teams are separated by just 2 places in the table and 4 points.

Cardiff is 14 points away from promotion play off. That hardly leaves them any chances to fight for promotion but instead gives them the opportunity to tune the team for the next season and produce some good performances until the end of the current one. Currently they are somewhat in a mixed form having 1 win 3 draws and 2 losses in their last 6 games.

Brentford looked good midweek. They produced a good display against Leeds United and were rewarded with a 2-0 victory over a very strong opponent. The Bees are coming into this game in a very good form having 3 wins in a row 2 of which came with a clean sheet.

Cardiff vs Brentford: Head to head

The teams look to be evenly matched in terms of head to head games. With 5 wins for Cardiff, 4 for Brentford and a single draw, Cardiff has the slight edge.

At home Cardiff has won 4 of their 5 overall wins against Brentford but 2 of them were in 2002 and 2001 and shouldn’t be counted as relevant. So in recent years that leaves Cardiff with 1 win and one defeat at home against Brentford both with a score of 3-2. Interesting to note is that the last 6 games all produced over 2.5 goals.

The previous game this season between the sides finished 2-2 at Brentford in late December.

Cardiff vs Brentford: Prediction

The best approach to this game would be to go for goal markets. With the last 6 games between the sides going over 2.5 in terms of goals and Brentford looking sharp up front in terms of offense a bet for over 2.5 goals looks viable.

Still if you want to go for final outcome Brentford seems to be the better option.

Cardiff vs Brentford: Bet Tips

  • The main pick is over 2.5 goals for 1.80 at bet365.
  • In terms of final outcome backing Brentford to win for 3.30 at bet365 has its value.
