Cardiff vs Sheffield Wednesday
England League Championship
Date: Wednesday, 19th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
Cardiff City finally managed to get out of the relegation zone with a 2-1 win against a stubborn Bristol City at home. Their 11 points from 12 games means that they have only 1 point cushion from Wigan Athletic on the final relegation spot. Cardiff have suffered 7 defeats this season, which constitutes 58% of the matches they have played so far. Their major drawback is a poor defense that have already conceded 20 goals and are one of the worst 3 in the league.
Sheffield Wednesday are finally turning the tables and notched up their third win in four games with a narrow 1-0 away win over the early leaders Huddersfield Town. The win help Sheffield to move closer to the play-off zone with 20 points, which is level with Birmingham and Bristol occupying the last 2 play-off spots. The Owls were winless in the first 4 away games this season, now they are coming with back-to-back wins with clean-sheets.

Cardiff vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction
Cardiff remains a vulnerable team when coming against disciplined and organized teams like Sheffield Wednesday. And they also tend to lose a higher percentage of their games which is all caused by some sloppy defensive display. Sheffield are a team in confidence and they know how to get full points out of matches. They do tend to struggle against organized defensive sides, but Cardiff is not one of them. The Owls to win is our pick for this match and we believe this will be a comfortable one for the away side.
