Cardiff vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction
The hosts failed to pick up any points for the first time in five weeks after table toppers West Brom got the better of them with a 4-2 scoreline on the road. Despite showing signs of resurgence in the second half of that clash, their counterparts proved to be a handful for the home team, who admitted the last and final goal in the dying minutes of stoppage time.
Sheffield Wednesday have been inconsistent to say the least, and have been alternating between wins and defeats in their recent matchups. Their last fixture at home saw them take down Wigan with a narrow 1-0 scorecard, while on the road, Eaves slotted the only goal home to give Hull a much deserved win.
Nevertheless, as far as home statistics go, Cardiff are the second best team in the cluster. Neil Warnock’s men have been a force reckon with here and have come out on top in four of their last five games. Furthermore, the away side have been at the losing end in half of their previous six trips on the road.
Taking into account that Sheffield Wednesday have not emerged victoriously in any of their last eight visits to this venue either, Cardiff should have this game in the bag by the end of the ninety minutes.
Additionally, the hosts have been keen on opening the scoring in each of their games here so far and have been winning with a clean sheet intact in their last two clashes in a row as well. Considering that two out of their last three head to head matches here have also witnessed the home team break the deadlock, count on Cardiff to draw first blood in this one without fail.
