Wigan are easily the absolute worst team in the whole of the Championship. They are placed bottom-most in the table, and are the only team to have lost the last four straight league games.

Meanwhile, Cardiff are trying their absolute best to stay over the relegation cut-off. They have had their fair share of troubles all through the season, but for sure they are better than their counterparts for the day. In fact, they lost just once since the second week of November in any competition, and this sole loss came against the third-placed Blackburn.

Who will win the match between Cardiff and Wigan?

Cardiff lost just once in over the past two months, and this only defeat came against one of the toppers. They are also at home, where they have been unbeaten after the World Cup break.

On the other hand, Wigan are placed dead last in the table, and they have a single win to their name in the last 14 matches. In the process they even went through a four-game losing streak, as well as a five-fixture losing stretch.

In addition, they are winless in h2h clashes since 2019. By the looks of things, hosts Cardiff are expected to win this upcoming encounter.

How many goals will be scored in the match?

It goes without saying that Wigan have the worst defense in the entire league. In fact, they let in 46 goals so far, and are the only team in the Championship to have let in more than 40.

It looks like we are in line to see a high-scoring affair.

Will Both Teams Score in the match?

Cardiff have been trying desperately to post some points on the board. They finally have been allotted an easier match-up, and we can count on them to give a spirited performance. It is a doubt if the struggling Wigan will be able to find the back of the net, that too on the road.

Wigan are the prime contender to get relegated at the end of the campaign, and are placed 24th in a table of 24. They are on a long stretch of poor performances, and they also are winless in h2h clashes in the past four years.
