Cardiff City vs Newcastle United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock was left disappointed after his team lost 2-0 against Bournemouth on the opening day. The hosts were the better team on the day and took the lead through a Ryan Fraser goal halfway into the first half. A late goal from Callum Wilson sealed the victory for Bournemouth. Newcastle also fell to an opening day defeat, as Mauricio Pochettino’s men were able to get a 2-1 win at St James’ Park. Jan Vertonghen’s opening goal after eight minutes was cancelled out by Joselu just three minutes later. However, Dele Alli came up with an 18th minute goal that ended up becoming the winner.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Newcastle have a strong record against Cardiff City after picking up three consecutive wins over this opponent. However, the opening day disappointment is likely to make it harder for the Magpies to travel down south and pick up a positive result. Newcastle have also traditionally struggled in trips down south. Cardiff had the second-best home record last season with Warnock’s men managing just one point fewer than Wolves in terms of the home table. I would pick a win for Cardiff.

The two teams have a decent attacking threat that is likely to yield goals in this match. Even though the match may not be a complete entertainer – due to the pressure involved for both clubs, there is likely to be a strong return of goals. My pick in this match would be to opt for both teams to score.

Cardiff City win – 9/4

Cardiff City Preview

Cardiff City had a disappointing result on the opening day but Neil Warnock should be aware about the need for picking up maximum points from the next two league matches. Cardiff have a string of five consecutive games against last season’s top seven from the first week of September. Warnock will identify home games as a key tool when it comes to keeping the club in the Premier League, but away points will also be crucial in a highly competitive league. Josh Murphy and Bobby Reid are the crucial signings for Cardiff in the summer.

Cardiff City Team News

Kenneth Zohore (groin) is doubtful for the game, while Aaron Gunnarsson (knee) is certainly ruled out.

Newcastle United Preview

The Newcastle board continues to face a barrage of criticism from supporters for the failure to make substantial investment into the squad. Newcastle have profited most from the summer transfer window after raking in more than £20 million from their transfer activity. The home defeat against Tottenham may not be a barometer for Newcastle, but Rafa Benitez will target a much better performance against the top clubs so that confidence trickles down into the potential six-pointers.

Newcastle United Team News

Florian Lejeune (cruciate ligament) is unavailable for the game, while DeAndre Yedlin (knee) is rated as doubtful.
