Cardiff City vs Derby County
Date: Tuesday, 14 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
The Bluebirds are facing serious pressure to hold on to the last playoff spot on offer. They are just a point above the Swans who are trying to surpass them. Currently with a two match losing streak going on this upcoming game will be very important for their promotion hopes.
Derby is currently winless in three recent league fixtures. It was not a surprise since all those games were against teams inside the top five positions. The recent defeat was against Brentford at home, a match that finished 1-3.
Cardiff vs Derby: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Derby has two wins and a loss in the last five head to head matches against Cardiff.
- Both sides found the back of the net in three of those five games.
- Derby won two and lost one in their last five trips to this ground.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in four of those five games at this ground.
Cardiff vs Derby: Prediction
The visitors remain unbeaten in their last two trips to this ground. But none of the teams has clear advantage in head to head matches in recent times. They have a comparatively better away run this season.
From their last five matches on the road they have won three and lost the remaining two. Home wins are rare for the hosts as they have two wins in last 10 games here including the league and Cup. So I am backing the visitors to get a narrow win on this one.
With teams like Swansea, Millwall and Preston hunting them for the playoff spot, the hosts are facing the heat. The recent home defeat to Blackburn was a shocker as they lost after taking a 2-1 lead in the first half.
The defensive show has also been very shabby compared to other teams in the top 10. Since Derby is also conceding in their recent games, I think we can see goals on both sides of the field this Tuesday.
