  • Cardiff have scored in seven of their last eight away trips

All eyes on Diaz debut

After splashing out on a deal which could reach up to £50million, Liverpool new boy Luis Diaz is in line for a debut when they meet Cardiff on Sunday. The Colombian forward could get his first taste of English football in this FA Cup tie, with the Welsh side underdogs heading to Anfield.

The Bluebirds sit 20th in the Championship, with Liverpool priced up quite short to book a place in the next round with ease. Given that their title hopes are all but gone, the two domestic trophies have taken on increased importance for Jurgen Klopp and co.

Bluebirds’ scoring streak

Liverpool have won four of their last five games, so it’s hard to see them having any issues dealing with Cardiff this weekend. However, the Reds’ habit of rotating for the cup has hurt them defensively in the past.

Liverpool have kept only two clean sheets across their last 11 FA Cup ties, with the Reds conceding to Shrewsbury in the last round. Meanwhile, Cardiff have scored in eight of their last 10 games and in seven of their previous eight trips.

While the visitors aren’t good enough to pull off a shock on Sunday, their scoring form should see them find the net. Given that run, back Liverpool to win and both teams to score. In addition, I’m going with a 3-1 correct score prediction as even a rotated Liverpool side should overpower Cardiff.
