Preston vs Cardiff Prediction & Match Preview

Preston vs Cardiff City Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Preston vs Cardiff
English Championship
Date: 11 March 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Deepdale (Preston).

Preston played the third goalless draw in the last four Championship rounds last weekend when they shared spoils with Watford at Vicarage Road.

It was another game in which the Lilywhites did not offer much in the final third, barely creating anything to threaten the Hornets on the occasion.

On a positive note, Ryan Lowe’s troops are unbeaten in five straight league affairs and they are still only eight points behind the promotional playoffs positions.

The Lilywhites will be super motivated to return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon when they play host to bottom-half Cardiff City in the 36th round of the competition.

Cardiff will enter the game in much higher spirits. They picked up the third victory in the last four outings seven days ago, beating Bristol City 2-0 at Cardiff City Stadium.

It was also the third clean sheet in the previous four Championship matches for the Bluebirds. They are now six points above the red zone and they will be hoping to take advantage of momentum and claim the much-needed points on Saturday.

Cardiff only have four victories in 17 matches on the road this term which is why we are not quite confident regarding their chances at Deepdale, though.

Preston vs Cardiff Head-to-head

  • There were no goals in either of the previous two head to head games between Preston and Cardiff.
  • Cardiff had previously won five straight clashes against the Lilywhites who are winless in eight consecutive outings against the Bluebirds.
  • Cardiff also have only 9 wins in the last 26 away clashes against Preston.

Preston vs Cardiff Prediction

Preston played three goalless draws in the previous four league rounds. Cardiff will also enter the game off of a goalless stalemate. This exact outcome occurred in each of the previous two head to head outings between these counterparts.

It is very hard to bet on anything else but the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the 1.57 odds. We will also try with Preston’s win at 2.40 knowing about Cardiff City’s poor record on travels in this term of the Championship.

Preston vs Cardiff Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.57 (4/7)
  • Preston to win @ 2.40 (7/5) odd.
