Cardiff City vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 21 April 2019
Kick-Off 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium (Cardiff).
Cardiff City earned a glimmer of hope thanks to a super important 0-2 victory away at Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday evening. They are now just two points shy of the Seagulls in the battle for avoiding the relegation. However, the schedule does not quite go in Cardiff’s favour as they play host to title chasers Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.
Making it back-to-back league wins will be a mission impossible for the Bluebirds who should be looking for salvation points in following fixtures against the likes of Fulham and Crystal Palace. The Reds are massive favourites here and we would be shocked to see any other scenario but a confident victory for them given the obvious gulf in quality between the two outfits.
Cardiff City vs Liverpool: Head-to-head
Interestingly, Cardiff City were always a tricky opposition for Liverpool.
The Reds lead the head to head tie just by one win coming into 26th encounter with the Bluebirds.
Cardiff City even have a positive record in home clashes with Liv’pool (6 wins to the Reds’ 4).
Each of last five head to head meetings saw goals scored at both ends.
Liverpool bagged as many as ten goals in last two wins over the Bluebirds.
Cardiff City vs Liverpool: Prediction
Liverpool made it seven straight wins across competitions last weekend when they dispatched Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield. Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were goalscorers in an important victory which kept the Reds at the top of the standings. Nevertheless, Man City have a game in hand meaning Jurgen Klopp’s men can’t afford a slip-up here against relegation-threatened Cardiff City.
The Reds won three in a row away from home netting at least two goals in each of games in the process. They found goals easy to come by in recent H2H meetings with the Bluebirds as well which is why we have reasons to expect the away win in a high-scoring affair here.
