Sheffield United vs Cardiff City
English League Championship
Date: Monday, 2nd April 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane, Sheffield.

Cardiff City are on red-hot form and they target another 3 points from the trip to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United on Monday evening.

With the 3-1 home win against Burton Albion, the Bluebirds stretched their winning streak to 8 games and maintained the 7 point gap with third placed Fulham. Besides, no other team in the league has picked up more points than Cardiff since New Year. Yet, they must carry on the momentum if they are to become a Premier League team for next season as they have to meet Aston Villa, Fulham, Derby and Wolves during the 7 remaining games.

Sheffield Wednesday on the other hand are also pushing for promotion and they are only a point behind the top six. However, they are finding it hard at the tail end of the season with only 1 win coming from the last 5. The Blades are still in contention for a play-off spot, only because of the excellent work done at the start of the season. They have only managed 4 wins from the 14 league games since January. However 3 of those wins came from the last four matches at their own backyard.

Sheffield United vs Cardiff City: Head-to-head

Cardiff are unbeaten in the last five h2h meetings with Sheffield Wednesday.
