Southampton vs Cardiff City Betting Tips: Form Guide

Southampton Just About Stay On Course

The home team have managed to cling onto their position throughout some very difficult encounters. Their last two games ended 1-1 against both Crystal Palace and Burnley. The former saw them look lucky to escape with a point, while in the latter, they were unlucky in failing to get the win.

Still, those two points are all that separates Southampton from Cardiff and a far more precarious position in the Premier League. Nonetheless, Southampton have shown a lot of positives in their recent performances – certainly enough to be firm favourites in the eyes of many Southampton vs Cardiff City betting tips.   

Their 2-1 victory over Everton, for instance, was a brilliant effort that even their manager Ralph Hasenhüttl said was their best under his tenure. It was a focused display of a team that finally saw all the pieces come together, showcasing an ability hinted at by their victory over Leicester by the same result a week prior. Despite dual draws, we don’t think Southampton’s progression has been seriously halted all that much, and Cardiff will have quite the job on their hands in order to do so.

Cardiff City Mount A Comeback Of Their Own

Promotion hasn’t been easy for Cardiff City. The last time they found themselves in the Premier League, back in the 2013/14 season, it ended with them crashing out at the bottom of the standings. They don’t sit at dead last this time around but remain in that dreaded drop zone. They will no doubt be desperate to not allow history to repeat itself. A win here would help deny that outcome, and would also silence many of the critics in the Southampton vs Cardiff City match previews.

Fans do have reasons to be hopeful. There’s no more fitting example than their 1-0 December victory over Southampton, which saw Callum Paterson take advantage of a glaring mistake by defender Jannik Vestergaard to secure the win in a match with few opportunities to score from either side. Another came recently with a sensational 2-0 win over Bournemouth, thanks to dual strikes by Bobby Reid, in what was an emotional night for the team.

They also showed fire the week before. Although they lost to Arsenal 2-1, their performance was one to be proud of. In our opinion, the recent performances by Cardiff haven’t gotten enough credit and their opponents underestimate them at their own peril.

Southampton vs Cardiff City Preview: Recent Meetings

If you want a good reason to ignore many Southampton vs Cardiff City betting tips for today and back the underdogs, then look no further than their last meeting. We’ve already mentioned this but the fact that Cardiff have a victory so close to this game is all the proof you need that this might be a much closer contest than many are suggesting.

Cardiff are actually two-for-two in their most recent outings. They also beat Southampton back in 2014 with another 1-0 win, although we think that’s significantly less relevant, as so much changes in a few years in the world of football. Before that, things are pretty much neck-and-neck all the way back to 1913, with Cardiff holding the overall statistical advantage by a single victory. There’s no way around it, the head-to-head advantage goes to Cardiff.

Southampton vs Cardiff City Prediction: Hard-Fought Southampton Win

We’ve made it fairly clear that, in our opinion, a lot of commentary on this game has been rather unfair to Cardiff. Just like Southampton, they have shown significant improvements lately, beating Bournemouth and taking Arsenal to the limit. Not only that but they also hold a recent win over their opponents. Similarly, they also have a lot to be positive about, and we think that this game is much more evenly-matched than the bookmakers suggest.

With that said, that doesn’t necessarily mean a Cardiff City win is the most likely outcome – simply that we think it is more likely than the odds indicate. This is expected to be an extremely hard-fought contest, both because of the abilities of each team and also how much this game matters in the fight to avoid relegation. However, Southampton have looked a touched better performance wise over a longer period. That, alongside the home advantage, means they have a slight edge in this one.

We’re expecting it to be a lot tougher than some commenters but nonetheless, our Southampton vs Cardiff City prediction is that the home team manage a hard-fought victory.
