Cardiff vs Millwall Prediction
Cardiff were left frustrated with just a point for the second time in succession after Preston did just enough to hold them to a stalemate last week. The hosts hardly made an impact in that latter matchup and finished the ninety minutes with no more than one measly shot on target.
Miserably, the home side have come out on top just twice in their past five games, garnering eight points from a possible fifteen. At the moment, Cardiff are level on points with Millwall on the ladder and are placed right above them albeit on goal difference.
On the other hand, Millwall made a return to losing ways in their most recent matchup at home against Barnsley. The visitors were forced to chase the game after their counterparts broke the deadlock in the first half. Despite leveling the scores post the restart, the guests had their hearts broken by a winning goal in the dying minutes of stoppage time.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have dropped points in nine of their last twelve outings. Meanwhile, Cardiff have been a force to reckon with on home soil.
Considering that they have stumbled just once at Cardiff City Stadium this term, the hosts are in line to come away with all three points in this one. However, their last two meetings at this venue have finished as a stalemate.
Taking into account that the visitors have shared the spoils five times on the road so far as well, the safest punt would have to be a draw no bet.
Furthermore, Cardiff have looked tame in the final third, especially in their h2h encounters here. All of their past four h2h meetings at this stadium have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.
Given that Millwall have not been keen on racking up the goal scoring charts in their outings either, a low scoring affair is certainly in the reckoning come Thursday.
