Rotherham vs Cardiff Prediction & Match Preview

Rotherham vs Cardiff
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 9 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium.

The Millers have recently been on a good run, that resulted in them climbing over the relegation zone. They have built some momentum in the process, and will be determined to continue this impressive streak.

Moreover, they have two games in hand, and this gives them more confidence that they could get into a safer spot in the table.

They have also been a great offensive force lately, that through this campaign they have scored just three fewer goals than toppers and potential champions, Norwich.

Meanwhile, the Bluebirds are going through a struggling stretch at present. They are conceding goals in plenty in the past several games, and have rarely won fixtures in the period.

On top of that, they have also struggled defensively at this venue in h2h encounters over the years.

Likely, expect Rotherham to have the upper hand this Tuesday at the Aesseal New York Stadium.

Rotherham vs Cardiff: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Only once have the hosts failed to score at this venue in the last two decades, and that too in 2003.

Rotherham vs Cardiff Prediction

The Millers recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Preston. In the meantime, Mick McCarthy’s men registered a 0-2 victory on the road against Bristol City.

Going on, Warne’s men had won three of the former four overall games, and had scored three or more goals in three of these match-ups, and two or more goals in four of these fixtures.

They were also unbeaten in six of their past seven games, and the only defeat in the period had come against the third-placed Swansea.

On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of their preceding nine overall games, and in the process they had even gone on a six-fixture losing run. Note that they had also conceded two or more goals in seven of their last eleven matches.

On top of that, in the past few years, the Millers have a dominating h2h record against this opponent as well.

Likely, expect Rotherham to be the better team on the pitch this game week.
