Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport
Two sides who still find themselves battling it out in the bottom half of the Championship table, Cardiff will host a resurging Barnsley on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Cardiff might have opened the 2020/2021 campaign with dreams of securing a play-off spot, they have struggled to find their feet. In their opening nine second-tier contests so far this year, they have recorded two wins, four draws and three defeats, scoring nine and conceding 10 in return. Collecting a points tally of 10 out of a possible 27, they open the midweek fixtures sat down in 17th and still three points adrift of breaking into the top-12. As for their recent run of results, including a 3-2 defeat away at QPR last time out, Cardiff have failed to win any of their last four Championship contests on the bounce and it should also be noted that the hosts have yet to record a home victory so far this year. However, it should be highlighted, each of their last three home fixtures have finished with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, enjoying what has been their most fruitful spell of the season so far, Barnsley simply have their sights set on potentially climbing into the top-half on Tuesday. In their opening nine Championship contests so far this year, they have recorded two wins, four draws and three defeats, scoring 10 and conceding 10 in return. Also managing to muster a points tally of 10, they open the midweek fixtures sat in 15th and with their goal difference keeping them ahead of Cardiff in the standings. As for their recent run of results, Barnsley have secured back-to-back Championship victories and find themselves in the midst of a five-match unbeaten run. However, with each of their last three away fixtures also finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome on Tuesday night.
