On Friday in England starts the next tour in the Championships. In one of the matches, made on that day, “Birmingham” will take the leader of the division “Cardiff City”. What forecast for this game? Read on.
“Birmingham” today is among the outsiders. In 11 rounds the team earned only eight points and takes 22 place in the standings. Most of their glasses luggage team Steve Cotterill recruited at home, and then at the start of the season. Perhaps the break for the matches of the teams went to the team for good, because in the last round of “blue” lost “Hull City” 1: 6. And in general, in the last eight rounds, “Birmingham” suffered six defeats.
“Cardiff City” so far looks much better than the hosts. Almost a quarter of the championship is played, and the team continues to hold at the top of the standings, which allows to assert about the prospects of Welsh to increase in the class. Cardiff started quite powerful, but in the beginning of September a little slowed down. Basically, the team rubbed points in draw matches, losing only once for the passed segment of the championship. This happened in the guest match with “Preston” – 0: 3. After that, the Welsh have already managed to beat away 2: 1 “Sunderland”.
Statistics and personal meetings
“Birmingham” lost in the championship in six of the last eight matches.
“Cardiff City” won on the road this season in three out of five fights.
Only two of the 14 previous matches between the opponents broke through the total more than 2.5.
Bookmaker offices are considered the favorite of the match of the guests. However, it is not unreasonable, because “Cardiff” in this championship shows the game much better than the hosts. However, the place among outsiders is unlikely to suit “Birmingham” . It is possible that the meeting will win the Welsh, but it is unlikely that she will be rich in goals.
