Cardiff vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 14:05 UK/ 15:05 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
Chelsea sit just outside the Premier League top 5 with a point behind Man United and three behind the 4th placed Arsenal, having failed to make it with a 2-0 loss at Everton now behind them. They’ve thus seen their five-game unbeaten streak ended and Maurizio Sarri will be desperate to bounce back quickly already late in the campaign.
Blues had no trouble converting on the road beforehand and will now want to replicate displays where they beat Malmo, Fulham and Dynamo Kiev since mid-February. They now hope to capitalize on the rivals’ struggles for points and send them further into the relegation zone with points at Cardiff City Stadium.
Cardiff have beaten West Ham ahead of the International break, though, and will now hope to show off once again after ending a three-game losing streak. They’ve seen quite comfortable losses to Watford, Everton, and Wolves beforehand, which will be more worrying ahead of the tough quest in front of the home crowd – despite Chelsea’s struggles for consistency.
Cardiff vs Chelsea: Head-to-head
Chelsea have beaten Cardiff in all of the sides’ last four head-to-head clashes.
We’ve seen a convincing 4-1 win at Stamford Bridge earlier this term, as Hazard bagged a hat-trick and Willian added one.
Cardiff last snatched any points back in 1961 and the sides met just those four times since then.
Cardiff vs Chelsea: Prediction
We will now back Chelsea to keep their winning streak against the lowly rivals going with an exciting win at Cardiff City Stadium, going for an Away win and a YES on Both teams to score which combines to a very good-looking 3.10.
Indeed, we have seen the Blues struggling to keep it together at the back but we don’t feel this will prove costly on the day.
However, this goes as further evidence we should be in for another exciting contest on their part as we also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.72. We’ve seen such occasions in five of their last six trips across competitions and should now be in for more of the same.
