Wolves vs Cardiff
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2nd March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Wolves suffered a shock defeat against the last-placed team in the league, Huddersfield, the last match-day. This coming after a run of eight unbeaten games by the side. They will be looking for amends right away, and have got the perfect prey for it. The squad is at home, unlike the last day, and is taking on another relegation-battler, Cardiff.
The visitors are two points below safety and has conceded the second-most number of goals in the competition. Also, they have scored the least, except for Huddersfield, away from home.
This tie has the additional specialty that the pair of Wolves and Cardiff were respectively the first and second team in the last-concluded EFL Championship, and had just gained entry into the top division. But while the former looks set for the long haul in the Premier League, Cardiff is struggling to find footing in the new setting.
Wolves vs Cardiff Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last six games and thirteen of the last fourteen saw Wolves finding the back of the net.
- Wolves have never failed to score at home.
- The last five games saw three home wins.
- Three of the last five fixtures and four of the last six saw the teams at home recording two or more goals.
Wolves vs Cardiff Prediction
The home team will be desperate to prove to the rest of the league that their Huddersfield defeat was just an anomaly and not something to be expected in regularity. They currently enjoy the status of the best in the competition other than the established top-six, and for a team that just climbed into the top division, it’s a distinction that cannot be let to go to waste.
Trust them to come to this game with intent.
Moreover, the team was on an unbeaten run of eight games before their shock loss, and at home, they have not tasted a defeat in their last five attempts. Even better, four of their last five home ties were wins. Cardiff, meanwhile, was winless in 11 of their last 15 games, and in 14 of the last 17 on the road.
Additionally, Wolves scored two or more goals in four of their last five home ties, whereas Cardiff conceded two or more in four of their last six matches and three or more in their last two.
A dominating performance by the hosts is on the cards. Most probably they will go after a huge win, and it’s logical to expect at least one goal in the first half.
