Reason For Brentford vs Cardiff Predictions

  • Both sides are within three points of the playoff places.
  • Cardiff have lost 1 of their last 4 visits to this ground.
  • Brentford have slipped to 14th in the home table, failing to win over half of their games here.
  • Cardiff are on a 3 game winning run while they have lost 1 of their last 6 clashes with the Bees.

Playoff Hopes on the Line

Can Brentford prove their playoff credentials with a victory over Cardiff this week? They are expected to push on for the top-six this season, with both of these sides sitting a couple of points shy of sixth. However, they face a difficult clash on Wednesday night when Cardiff are the visitors to Griffin Park.

While the Bees have lost two of their last three games, the Bluebirds are going from strength to strength. Their record at Griffin Park is solid, with eight goals and seven points from their last four visits. Can they add to that run in their final visit to this ground?

Griffin Park Woes

As for Brentford, the hosts have seen their record at Griffin Park slip. They were among the strongest home sides last season, but this time around the Bees are 14th in the home table this term. That poor return looks even worse when you consider their opposition. They’ve failed to win over half of their home games, without really being tested.

The Bees have only face one of the top 11 Championship sides here this term, while they haven’t beaten any team higher than 15th at home this term. They’ve taken one point from five clashes with top eight sides overall this season, while we think their home struggles could continue against a Cardiff side who have lost only two of their last eight trips.

Cardiff Rising Under Harris

The Bluebirds lost their manager earlier this season due to their away form, but Neil Harris is slowing turning things around. He’s unbeaten in his first four games in charge, with his side scoring seven goals and conceding only four in return. Their move into the top eight has come thanks to home results, but that is starting to change.

Cardiff are lacking away wins this season, but they come into this clash aiming to build on impressive results of late. Their three-game winning run has put them in the frame for a top-six finish, while that run included a 1-0 victory at playoff contenders Nottingham Forest. They will be hoping to prey on the weaknesses within this Brentford side, while the Bluebirds will be out to add to a run of four wins and a draw in six clashes with Brentford.

After drawing five of their 10 away trips this season, we think Cardiff will avoid defeat here. We are backing the Bluebirds on the Double Chance market as they look to add to their solid record over the Bees. On top of that, we’re also backing them to claim a 1-1 draw in this visit, given the hosts’ big game record this season.
