Sheffield Wednesday vs Cardiff Prediction

In their previous encounter, Sheffield Wednesday suffered a 3-2 defeat against Stoke on the road. So, they will be glad to return home after the loss on the road.

Besides that, the Owls have a decent form at home. With just one loss from their 11 home matches, they are stronger at home in the campaign.

Cardiff has been caught in a draw for the third time in a row in the league. Also, the 1-1 draw with Millwall has marked their fourth winless game in their campaign schedule.

On the other hand, Cardiff has only one win in their 12 away games so far. Along with that, four of their last five away fixtures had them drop points in the clashes.

From this, it is evident that Sheffield Wednesday does have the upper hand in the game. With their league standing and the five points lead over Cardiff, the host does prove stronger than the visitor. Also, their home ground advantage has been used wisely and can be counted on to be handy again.

Meanwhile, Cardiff has been at a downward slope in their away form. Also, they have recently suffered a defeat on the road. Henceforth, Cardiff will have problems in keeping the ball in their court.

As such, Sheffield Wednesday has more chance of taking all three points in the clash.
