Our prediction for this Championship match:
Cardiff City and Derby County, the two playoffs chasing sides, face each other at Cardiff City Stadium in what is expected to be a close encounter. The Bluebirds aim to retain their spot in top six, but their current form is not giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the midweek clash. Following a 3-2 loss to Blackburn Rovers, Cardiff City were beaten by Fulham at Craven Cottage in their last league match. The Welsh outfit are eager to get back on course, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Derby.
The Rams, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of WBA and Brentford. Seeing that a win over Cardiff will see Derby keep their promotion hopes alive, Wayne Rooney and Co. are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s clash. Even though Derby attacker Martyn Waghorn remains on the sidelines through suspension, both teams to score betting option should be considered.
