Huddersfield Town vs Cardiff City
England – Championship
Date: Friday, 5 March 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Kirklees Stadium.
The Bluebirds are one of the best teams in the competition based on recent form, and they are also placed sixth in the table as of now.
They have scored the second-most number of goals of all the squads in participation, and they are determined to qualify for the playoffs as well.
They are on the road this weekend, and in such games they really have been a dominant force in the past few months.
Moreover, they have a good h2h record against this rival too. Meanwhile, the Terriers are going through a dismal run at present, and are conceding goals in huge numbers.
They are also placed just two spots above the relegation cut-off, and only the dead-last placed Wycombe have conceded more goals than them in the Championship.
By the looks of things, expect Cardiff to post the three points on the board.

Carlos Corberan’s men were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day by Birmingham. In the meantime, McCarthy’s men registered a 4-0 win at home against Derby.
Going on, the Terriers were winless in 12 of their previous 13 overall matches, and nine of these were losses. They have also won just once at home in the whole of 2021.

Moreover, they also have a superb h2h record against this foe over the years.
Considering these observations, expect Cardiff to deliver a winning performance this Friday.
