Cardiff vs Brentford Predictions
- Brentford are unbeaten in their last 13 Championship outings (W6, D7).
- The Bees have won four and drawn two of their last six league games on the road.
- Cardiff have won five of their last seven and three of their last four at Cardiff City Stadium.
- The Bluebirds are unbeaten in their last four home meetings against the Bees, winning three.
Bluebirds to Test Bees’ Promotion Credentials
Cardiff City should pose a significant test to Brentford’s promotion credentials when the sides clash in Wales on Boxing Day.
Recent 2-0 defeats to leaders Norwich City and rivals Swansea City indicate that the 10th placed Bluebirds might fall just short of the Championship elite once again this term, but they otherwise come into this fixture in decent form after winning five of their last seven and three of their last four at home.
The Cardiff City Stadium is a tough place for any team to visit when the home side are amidst a good run and Brentford have struggled here in recent seasons, with just a single point collected from their last four trips to the Welsh capital.
Thomas Franke’s charges look well placed to get a positive result this time around after reaching the Carabao Cup semis and going 13 games unbeaten in the Championship, however they have drawn on seven occasions in that sequence.
The fourth-placed Bees may have to make do with a share of the spoils again here and that certainly makes the most appeal from a betting perspective, considering punters are getting over 2/1 for an outcome that has been commonplace in Brentford’s recent starts.
Both teams have scored in all but one of the last 10 league meetings, so we’re also predicting a 1-1 correct score alongside our match betting tip.
