Huddersfield vs Cardiff
2018/19 English Premier League
Date: Saturday 25th August 2018
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: John Smiths Stadium (Huddersfield).
Huddersfield come into this game, the 3rd of the EPL season bottom of the league and needing a win. It might only be August but the omens are not good for the club.
They have scored just 1 goal and conceded 9 and were thrashed at Manchester City 6-1 last weekend. On the opening day of the season they lost 3-0 at Chelsea, so let’s also be fair they have had two very strong teams to have to deal with and in some ways their season will start this weekend at home to Cardiff.
Cardiff lost their first game 2-0 against Bournemouth and then when they played at home Neil Warnock’s team fought hard to salvage a point and draw 0-0 with Rafa Benitez’s side Newcastle. But it is fair to say that both teams are lacking some confidence coming into this encounter.
Huddersfield vs Cardiff: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played here was in the Championship where Cardiff came away as 3-0 winners.
- Cardiff have won the last two games here and scored 6 goals in those matches.
Huddersfield vs Cardiff: Prediction
If we take a few steps back to look at this game we can see two teams that would be very happy to get a point from this game. The home team need something to kick start their season and Cardiff won’t be an easy match as the away side will defend deep and in numbers.
This is a risky choice but we will back the draw at full time, and predict the half time correct score. We should expect a cautious slow start to a game where both sides will be lacking some confidence.
