Cardiff City vs Birmingham City Tips and Prediction
Cardiff’s supporters would have been more hopeful about a protracted stay in the top six after their team opened the season with a victory over promotion favorites Norwich City.
The EFL Cup loss to Portsmouth by a lopsided score of and the loss from a winning position at Reading, though, have altered the tone in South Wales.
The latter of those failures occurred after Steve Morison made significant adjustments to his team, yet he would still have anticipated players who were given the chance to perform well to put up a better show.
Morison will be anxious to add to his point total from this game because the next two games are against Bristol City and West Bromwich Albion, two challenging teams.
However, since the start of the season, their opponents have emerged as one of the biggest surprises in any of England’s top four divisions.
Many people anticipate Birmingham to be a relegation threat given their well-known problems off the field, but they have defied expectations in their first two games.
Following a scoreless draw against playoff semifinalist Luton Town from the previous campaign, St Andrew’s saw the team defeat finalist Huddersfield Town.
In the first round of the EFL Cup, Blues also rallied from two goals down to draw with Norwich, but ultimately lost to the Canaries on penalties.
The choice to give the reins to John Eustace, who had previously only served as the head coach of the non-league Kidderminster Harriers, was the subject of much discussion.
However, the 42-year-old seems to be enjoying the opportunity to head one of his neighborhood teams, so supporters are hoping for another successful outcome this next weekend.
It’s impossible to anticipate the outcome of this game, especially since Birmingham is still performing well despite the unfavorable preseason projections. Cardiff will want to recover from the humiliation in midweek, which we believe they will do in a hard-fought match, even though we think the visitors will have their chances in South Wales.
