On the 2nd of February with a kick off time of 17:30 Cardiff City are at home in the Premier League to ACF Bournemouth.
Cardiff City F.C
Cardiff is currently sitting 18th in the relegation zone and is now 4 points behind 17th place Burnley. They need points urgently or if not the gap will be too be to make up before the season ends. In their last three matches in the EPL they have drawn once against Huddersfield, lost 3-0 to Newcastle United and in their last match, they were beaten at the Emirates against Arsenal 2-1. This is relegation form but they have a chance to get themselves out of trouble over the next few matches when they face Southampton, Watford, and Everton in their next three.
Bournemouth City F.C
Bournemouth players confidence will be extremely high after thrashing Chelsea 4-0 in their last match in the Premier League. They beat West Ham 2-0 in the game previous so have hit a run of form which they will hope to continue against relegation battlers Cardiff. They have a tough run in over the next three EPL matches after this as they face Liverpool, Wolves, and Arsenal so will be hoping to get some points over the weekend. A win could take them from 10th place in the league up to 7th which is a great incentive for the players.
Prediction – Bournemouth Win
After beating Chelsea in stunning fashion Bournemouth will fancy their chances to get an away win at Cardiff. The first goal will be vital in this match as Bournemouth will find it hard to break down Cardiff if they get in front so they will need to start on the front foot. I think with the form that they are in they should be able to achieve this and win by 0.2.
