Cardiff vs Huddersfield betting tips: Premier League match preview and predictions

Cardiff vs Huddersfield prediction: Cardiff 2-0 Huddersfield

A huge relegation 6-pointer in South Wales.

Cardiff come into this match in decent form and Neil Warnock’s side are showing signs of life.

Huddersfield meanwhile aren’t.

The Terriers are now cut adrift at the bottom of the table and, defeat here, could be the end for David Wagner.

Who’ll claim a massive three points?

Cardiff City vs Huddersfield Town: Who will win?

Cardiff, who have a superb home record, are massive favourites at 5/4 to win this match.

Huddersfield have only won 1 of their last 9 away games and are a huge price at 13/5 to change that.

A draw, which suits neither, is 2/1.

Under 2.5 goals is 1/2 and both teams to score no is 4/6.

Cardiff to win and both teams to score no is 9/4.

Scotland international Callum Paterson remains Cardiff’s top scorer with 4. He’s 11/2 to score first and 9/4 to get his fifth of the season.

Bobby Reid is set to start up front for the hosts. He’s 13/2 to score first and 5/2 to net anytime.

Steve Mounié got his first goal of the season in Huddersfield’s last match. The Benin international forward is 15/2 to score first and 3/1 to make it two in two.

Both Paterson and Reid to score is 10/1.

Cardiff City vs Huddersfield Town: Match preview

Can Cardiff really stay up?

They’re outside the relegation places and they have been there since November 30, 2018.

They started December with a crucial 1-0 win over Southampton before losing 3-2 at Watford and 5-1 at home to Manchester United.

However, on Boxing Day, they held out for a 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park despite the fact Crystal Palace had 31 shots to their 9.

Three days later, they travelled to Leicester to face a side that had just beaten Chelsea and Manchester City

Unperturbed, they looked set for another goalless draw but, in the 92nd minute, Víctor Camarasa’s stunner saw them snatch all 3 points.

Subsequently, they were beaten 3-0 by Spurs before losing 1-0 to League one side Gillingham in the FA Cup.

Nevertheless, they’ll come into this match confident of getting another win so can they do it?

Neil Warnock

As for Huddersfield, it’s looking very bleak.

This match is a third in a row against sides in-and-around them in the table.

A great opportunity to pick up some points perhaps?

It hasn’t turned out that way.

The Terriers were beaten 1-0 at Fulham after conceding in the 91st minute.

A bitter blow.

Then, in their first match of 2019, despite taking the lead at home to Burnley, they were once again beaten going down 2-1 this time.

Last Saturday’s 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Ashton Gate against Bristol City was their ninth in-a-row in all competitions; a new club record.

Another defeat could signal the end for David Wagner so can the league’s bottom club possibly stop the rot?

Neil Warnock may not have any new signings, yet, but he doesn’t have any fresh injury worries either.

Sven-Göran Eriksson left goalkeeper Neil Etheridge out of his Philippines squad for the currently ongoing Asia Cup as he elected to stay with his club.

Etheridge has saved 4 penalties so far this season, a joint record, including one in their victory at Leicester.

Warnock’s frustration at not being able to sign Nathaniel Clyne on loan was evident last weekend as he chose to sign for Bournemouth.

This’ll mean that Bruno Ecuele Manga will continue at right-back.

Greg Cunningham appears to have displaced Joe Bennett at left-back in recent weeks.

They’ve reverted to a 4-2-3-1 in recent matches; a change which has pushed Víctor Camarasa further forward.

Josh Murphy and Callum Paterson are likely to start out wide with Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Junior Hoilett and Kadeem Harris left in reserve.

The diminutive Bobby Reid will start up front searching for his third league goal of the season.

Given the current form of both, this side should have enough to beat Huddersfield.

As for the visitors, after 9 straight defeats what does David Wagner do?

He looks set to make around seven changes from the FA Cup defeat last weekend, that’s what.

Ben Hamer started in that match but number 1 Jonas Lössl will come back in.

Christopher Schindler was suspended for that match after being sent off in the defeat to Burnley but is back in contention.

Fellow centre-back Mathias Jørgensen is their top scorer this season with 3 goals; highlighting their attacking problems.

Despite those goalscoring woes, 3 attacking players have been allowed to leave on loan.

Ramadan Sobhi has joined Egyptian Champions Al Ahly, Rajiv van La Parra has signed for Middlesbrough and Collin Quaner has gone to Ipswich.

Nevertheless, they do have one new signing.

Jason Puncheon, who’s joined on a 6-month loan from Crystal Palace, could make his league debut for the club after starting in the FA Cup last Saturday.

He’ll be trying to fill the void left by the injured Aaron Mooy.

They, like their opponents, have switched from a back 3 to a back 4 in recent matches so there’s an emphasis on the wingers to create chances.

Steve Mounié got his first goal of the season in their last league match so can he add another here?

Defeat at the Cardiff City Stadium could seal their fate.
