Cardiff 17/20 to beat Gillingham in Saturday’s FA Cup clash
Competition: FA Cup
Market: Cardiff win
Odds: 17/20 @ Bet 365
Looking to book their spot in the fourth round of this year’s FA Cup, Cardiff will travel to League One Gillingham on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Gillingham may have enjoyed a bright patch entering December, they could not maintain their momentum and now find themselves looking over their shoulder in League One. Winning just eight of their 16-match in England’s third tier, the Blues currently hold the third worst defensive record in the division. With a points tally of 28, they also now hold just a two-point buffer over the relegation zone. As for their recent run of form, the Gills have now lost four of their last six matches and have also picked up just one home win in their last four attempts.
As for the visitors, while many expected Cardiff to immediately drop back down to the Championship this season, the Bluebirds have surprised many. With a points tally of 18, the Welsh side hold a two-point gap over the bottom-three and have recently improved on their form away from the Cardiff City Stadium. Picking up a 1-0 win over Leicester in their last match on the road, they have now kept back to back clean sheets away from home. Given the gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a Cardiff win on Saturday afternoon.
