Cardiff vs Portsmouth Predictions

  • Portsmouth have exited the competition in Round One in four of the last six seasons
  • Portsmouth have failed to win either of their opening two league matches
  • Cardiff are unbeaten in their last five matches against Portsmouth

Cardiff boss Morrison expecting a reaction

Cardiff were impressive on their way to recording a 1-0 win on the opening day against Norwich. Cardiff followed that effort up with a disappointing defeat away at one of the favourites for Championship relegation, Reading. Steve Morrison will be excepting a reaction from his side on Tuesday and as a result, may make fewer changes to the starting line-up. Cardiff have a good record in this fixture, they are unbeaten in their last five against Portsmouth, including a 2-1 (AET) victory in this competition in 2017 – the Championship side are fancied to take all the beating in this one.

Thin squad mean Pompey likely to sacrifice the competition

Danny Cowley has named an unchanged starting 11 for their opening two league matches of the season. Portsmouth have failed to win either of those fixtures and with only a small squad at his disposal, boss Danny Cowley is expected to give some of his regular starters a rest on Tuesday. Portsmouth have exited this competition at the First-Round stage in four of the last six seasons and there is every chance that becomes five in seven on Tuesday.

Cardiff to Win in the outright market will be the main selection for Tuesday’s game, with a 2-1 home win forming the Correct Score prediction.
