Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.

Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town go head-to-head in Tuesday’s Championship clash with both teams looking for a win to get closer to the promotion zone.

It has been a difficult season for Cardiff, but they finally managed to display their lethal side by thrashing Luton Town 4-0 on the weekend.

The Bluebird’s head-coach Neil Harris was under pressure following the team’s three match winless run and Saturday’s win may temporarily ease some, but consistency is what they need from now.

Huddersfield are no better and they too are having an inconsistent run of results. However they got back to winning ways on the weekend with a thrilling 3-2 win over an inform Middlesbrough.

The win helped the Terries to move up to 14th in the table, while the hosts are one spot behind with a point deficit.

Cardiff vs Huddersfield Head-to-head

The Bluebirds are unbeaten in the last 13 head-to-head meetings with the Terriers with 9 wins and 4 draws.

Cardiff did a double in last season’s Championship duels, 2-1 at the City Stadium and 3-0 at the Kirklees Stadium.

Cardiff vs Huddersfield Prediction

Both teams showed glimpses of their quality on the weekend and this is expected to be a tight clash, but Cardiff City have a dominant h2h record over the Terriers and we can back them to stretch their winning streak on Tuesday night. The visitors have been far from impressive while playing on the road this season.

We can expect some goals as well since both teams can be lethal in front of goals. Huddersfield, especially stand out in that aspect having netted at least 1 goal in 6 of their 7 away games this season. Meantime Cardiff City failed to score in just 2 of their 14 league games this season.

Therefore, we will take the btts as our top pick despite haf of their last 8 meetings at this stadium failing to register the same.
