Rotherham United vs Cardiff City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).

With four losses in their last five championship games, Rotherham is close to the bottom of the table as it stands this season. The host is on a two-game losing streak in the campaign, following a 1-2 loss at home to the likes of Barnsley in the last league clash in their schedule.

Cardiff City is on a three-game losing streak in the campaign, but some early wins in the league have given them a head start over the host on the table. The Bluebirds will need a win to find their way back into the league if they want to avoid falling into the relegation zone.

Rotherham vs Cardiff Head-to-head (h2h)

Rotherham vs Cardiff Prediction

With both teams experiencing a dip in form, the match is sizing to be anyone’s game at Aesseal New York Stadium on Saturday. Both teams have lost four of their recent five fixtures in the campaign.

Rotherham United has lost three of those four defeats on the road, while the visitor lost two each at home and away in their schedule. Despite the loss, both teams have found the back of the net in their last two attempts in the league.

The host does not enjoy the ground advantage with their poor form in the campaign this term. They are just one point away from sliding to the ultimate bottom of the table. Cardiff is no different in their recent encounters, which shows they have taken a dip in form.

The double chance favoring Cardiff City will probably be the best bet for the punters considering both side’s current form in the championship. Furthermore, the BTTS will also come in handy from the goals area in the encounter.

Rotherham vs Cardiff Betting tips

  • Both teams to score @ 1.80 (4/5).
