Market: Cardiff to beat Burton
Odds: 2/5 @ Bet365
With the Championship table reaching the business end of the season, English football’s second tier remains incredibly tight at both ends of the table with just a single point seeing a team jump several places. On that note, promotion candidates Cardiff will welcome Burton to the Cardiff City Stadium on Friday afternoon.
For the hosts, life under former QPR and Leeds boss Neil Warnock has could not be going more to plan. After 37 matches in the Championship this season, Cardiff have won 23, drawn seven and lost seven, scoring 58 and conceding 31 in return, Cardiff boasts the best defensive record in the division. Their points tally of 76 sees them now holding a seven-point buffer over Fulham in third and with a game in hand, they now sit eight points adrift of league leaders Wolves. Marching towards the Premier League next season, Cardiff are unbeaten in their last nine and have won their last seven on the bounce.
As for Nigel Clough’s Burton Albion side, after avoiding the drop zone by a single point last season, it appears their bad luck has finally caught up to them. After 38 games this season, Burton have recorded just 7 wins, nine draws and 22 defeats, scoring 27 and conceding 67, they also boast the worst attacking record and the second worst defensive stats in the Championship. Now sat 23rd in the table, two points above Sunderland, Burton are three points adrift of safety and their recent form has shown no signs of improving. Burton are now on a five-match winless run, losing four of those matchups.
