Coventry vs Cardiff
Date: Wednesday, 15 September 2021
Kick-off 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: The Coventry Building Society Arena.
Coventry host Cardiff in one of the most interesting games of the Matchday No 7 in Championship on Wednesday evening.
Both Coventry and Cardiff used the international break well to recover from recent defeats and get back on the winning ways at the weekend.
Coventry managed to break Middlesbrough’s resistance with two late second-half goals from strikers Viktor Gyokeres and Martin Waghorn.
Gyokeres has been just fantastic so far in the season. The Swedish forward has three goals and two assists to his name in six appearances. He will no doubts be the main threat to Cardiff’s goal on Wednesday.
The visitors managed a second-half comeback to survive a Nottingham Forrest threat in the last match of the previous Gameweek on Sunday afternoon at The City Ground.
Substitute Rubin Colwell made the difference by bagging a brace after coming on from the bench 12 minutes into the second half.
However, the head coach Mick McCarthy still has plenty of reasons to be worried ahead of his team’s trip to Coventry despite the weekend’s victory.
Cardiff City are just incapable of keeping things tight defensively these days. The team failed to keep a clean sheet in five subsequent outings across competitions.
This will be the music to the ears of the aforementioned Gyokeres who is well worth backing to score anytime here at the 3.25 odds.
Coventry vs Cardiff Head-to-head
- Coventry will play against tradition here as they only managed to beat Cardiff City 4 times in 21 matches.
- However, the teams exchanged home wins when they locked horns in the previous term of the Championship.
- Both outfits were on target in four of the last five head to head affairs.
Coventry vs Cardiff Prediction
Coventry City looked pretty good at the weekend against Middlesbrough. It was their third win in the last four league matches.
