England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 15 February 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium (Cardiff).

Cardiff have been in an unbeaten run for quite a long time, but need to start converting their draws into wins if they are serious about qualifying for the playoffs. They do have the home advantage this Friday, and are taking on a relegation-battler, Wigan. Fans expect nothing but the three points this weekend.

Cardiff vs Wigan Match Preview

Cardiff recorded a 0-3 win on the road the last match-day against Huddersfield. It was an important win, as it was away from home, and with an impressive scoreline as well. 

The back-to-back wins against Luton, and Cardiff surely give hope to fans regarding their playoff ambitions.

In the meantime, Wigan were held to a 2-2 draw at home the prior game week, by Middlesbrough. It was a totally messy affair, as the referee had to brandish ten yellow cards, and a red. Seven of the ten yellow cards had gone to the hosts.

It was the 18th winless game of the team from their last 21 attempts, and rightfully justified their place in the relegation zone.

Going on, Wigan had dominated h2h clashes formerly. But as of now, it seems to be a thing in the past. Either team are placed on opposite ends of the performance spectrum at present, and with the end of the season approaching, Wigan are playing for safety, while Cardiff are chasing their PL dream.

Cardiff vs Wigan Prediction

Cardiff are unbeaten in their last ten games in a row, and they remained so in 18 of their previous 20 fixtures. At home, they are unbeaten in the last ten appearances, and have lost just once this whole league campaign. They are also placed in the top tier of the table, and are actively chasing a spot in the playoffs. 

On top of that, they have the home advantage, and are taking on a team placed in the relegation zone. Wigan have so far recorded a total of just 30 points from their 32 fixtures, and hold the 22nd spot in a table of 24. 

They have also scored the least number of goals of all the teams in the competition, and have recorded the second-fewest number of wins. 

They were also winless in 18 of their prior 21 overall games, and have recorded a total of just two wins away from home this whole season.

Taking all these observations into account, we expect Cardiff to deliver a winning performance this weekend at home.
