Hull City vs Cardiff City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull).
Cardiff City’s players made their lives complicated with the 3-1 defeat to derby County away at iPro Stadium on Tuesday evening. They are still just one point above Fulham, but without a game in hand on the Cottagers, meaning that two wins in last two league games are required for the direct promotion.
The first of two crucial tests is about to come on Saturday when the second-placed outfit travels to KCOM Stadium to take on Hull City. The hosts sit 18th, without a true imperative, but their players will definitely not let the Bluebirds snatch the win without a fight.
The Tigers proved it seven days ago when they denied Bristol City a win at Ashton gate even though the Robins were desperate for points in the playoffs contest there. The match produced a crazy ten-goal thriller ending without a winner.
Hull City vs Cardiff City: Head-to-head
Hull City lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into landmark 30th encounter with Cardiff City.
The Bluebirds ended the run of three consecutive losses to the Tigers beating them 1-0 in this term’s clash in Wales.
Interestingly, none of last four head to head matches saw the both teams to score option.
The Bluebirds took only 3 wins in 14 away clashes with Hull City.
Hull City vs Cardiff City: Prediction
The visitors will be much more motivated to get the win, but instead of going for Cardiff’s victory, we will rather back goals at both ends at the odds of 1.61. Hull City will enter this after playing a 5-5 draw with Bristol City last time out, while the visitors proved out to be fairly easy to break down lately allowing at least a goal in nine of last ten league matches.
Having this in mind, Hull City are worth backing to net two or more at 2.25 as well, especially if we know that they’ve been pretty successful in head to head games with Cardiff City over the course of history.
