Cardiff City vs Manchester City - Free Betting Tips

Cardiff City
Manchester City

This weekend sees the struggling but determined Cardiff City host champions Manchester City in what should be a thrilling Premier League fixture. Neil Warnock’s men seek their first win of the competition, readying themselves for their third back-to-back fixture against a top six team. Contrastingly, Manchester City have seemed a level above most teams in the Prem of late, but have not had the perfect start to the competition as their challengers Liverpool and Chelsea. Cardiff have shown some glimpses of their potential during their recent matches, despite the results not going their way, but are priced at anything above 16/1 with City priced at 2/13 favourites (Betway).

Our low-risk betting tip this week, ironically, carries a slight bit of risk. The tip is both teams to score at 5/4 (Betway), which will seem risky at first, but when looking at how Cardiff have scored against the likes of both Chelsea and Arsenal, and how Manchester City have conceded against Huddersfield, Wolves and Newcastle. Over 4.5 goals is priced at 14/5 with 888sport, which is worth a shot at those good odds. Man City to win 1-4 is priced at 13/1 with Betfair, which should be considered as an outside bet as Guardiola’s men will be looking to at least match what title challengers Chelsea did to Cardiff.

Cardiff City vs Manchester City Betting Tips: Form Guide

Cardiff Struggling To Find Their Feet

Warnock’s Bluebirds have taken just two points away from their opening five matches in the Premier League as the competition begins to take shape going into the sixth round. Cardiff had an early lead last week through the fan-favourite Sol Bamba, but title-challengers Chelsea found some stability and ran away with the game as it went on through a hattrick from Eden Hazard and a goal from Willian. With just 23% of possession, the result came as no surprise. Although Cardiff defended well early on, it would be impossible to hold off Chelsea for 77% of the match. Despite success in holding both Newcastle and Huddersfield to 0-0 draws, it will be the lack of victories that worries coaches, players and fans alike. Since then, Cardiff have met Arsenal and Chelsea, meaning that they will play three top five teams in their opening matches. Their most impressive performance to date has to be Arsenal, despite losing, as they equalised twice through Camarasa and Ward before conceding the killer blow in the last ten minutes. Having held their own against Arsenal, they will be hopeful for at least presenting a good account of themselves here this Saturday.

Manchester City Back On Track

It has been a close to perfect few years in the Premier League of late for Guardiola’s Manchester City and having begun this season well, they will be hoping to take home some silverware. It hasn’t all gone City’s way this season though, losing points to newly promoted Wolves, who fellow promoted side Cardiff will want to emulate. Sat in 3rd at the moment behind Liverpool and Chelsea, City will go at Cardiff full force here this Saturday. City opened their campaign perfectly with an away win (0-2) at the Emirates, followed by a 6-1 destruction of Huddersfield. It was then that they slipped up, drawing 1-1 with Wolves despite having 72% of possession. They returned well, beating both Newcastle and Fulham (2-1, 3-0), with star-men Silva and Sterling all shining. City won again in their most recent match, with Leroy Sane returning following being dropped against Newcastle, dominating Fulham 3-0.

Cardiff City vs Manchester City Preview: Recent Meetings

One would expect that nothing interesting would come from recent Premier League meetings between these both sides, but fixtures have been very intriguing. Manchester City, as expected, won their previous encounter back during Cardiff’s one-season stint in the league during 2013-14, where they defeated the Bluebirds by 4-2. At the Cardiff City Stadium, it was shockingly the home side who took the three points, beating Man City 3-2 through goals from Aron Gunnarsson and a double from Frazier Campbell (who also scored in their away fixture).

Cardiff City vs Manchester City Prediction: Comfortable Away Victory

Manchester City have already lost points to a newly promoted side this season in Wolves, so Cardiff will hope to emulate their success here. Cardiff also defeated City back in 2013-14, scoring a combined five goals against City in their two encounters. Nevertheless, Cardiff have struggled to find points against any top tier sides, so we feel that Manchester City will pull away from a resilient CCFC quite comfortably after around 30 minutes. The Bluebirds may hold out City for a while, they may even score, but it is very hard to look past anything but a win for Guardiola’s troops. Manchester City are a top-quality side, with many elite players in their squad, so the South Wales side are in for a tough afternoon at the office.
