Cardiff vs Coventry in the Championship on Feb 15. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Cardiff vs Coventry in the Championship on Feb 15. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Cardiff are having a forgettable season as they look to edge themselves away from relegation danger in the Championship, but they should feel confident about their chances of getting something against a Coventry side that have lost their way in their push for a play-off place.

The visitors were incumbents of the top six in the early months of the season but have struggled for consistency during the winter period and now find themselves in 12th place, but they remain only a handful of points behind sixth-place West Brom.

Cardiff should be too good to go down this year and are nine points clear of the bottom three, but with the likes of Derby and Reading certain to pick up points they could do with a result here to give them more breathing space.

Draw and Both Teams to Score

Cardiff should take plenty of heart from their FA Cup outing at Liverpool a week ago in which they put in a spirited performance and even popped up with a very decent goal.

And their last home outing in the Championship saw them deliver an excellent performance in beating in-form Nottingham Forest 2-1. The scoreline would’ve had a touch more gloss had it not been for a consolation goal from the visitors late on.

That said, their general home record is pretty poor. It’s just two wins at the Cardiff City Stadium in their last 11 attempts, but goals have started to flow more freely in recent weeks, with three of their last four matches seeing both teams score.

Coventry, meanwhile, are struggling on the road, with just two wins in their last 12 outings, but they too have seen goals in recent weeks, with four of their last five matches seeing a goal apiece for both sides.

Neither side are in tip-top shape and with the Championship throwing up plenty of stalemates, we think we’re likely to see the same here. A Draw and Both Teams to Score is the play here a 15/4 with bet365

Cardiff Form, squad news, opinion

The Bluebirds would’ve been hoping for a tilt at the top six, or at least a top-half finish under manager Mick McCarthy when the season got going.

But things turned south rather quickly, and the former Republic of Ireland boss was sacked in October after they suffered their eight successive loss.

Managerial rookie Steve Morrison had had an OK start to his tenure, with one or two half-decent runs in his four-month stint so far, but their inability to string a long run of good results means they still lie in 20th place and with the dreaded “R word” still in the back of their minds.

Recent victories against Forest and Barnsley have kept their heads above water, but their game management has been criticised recently after they chucked away a 1-0 lead at Bristol City thanks to some horror show defending.

That said, Coventry are poor travellers and are potentially there for the taking on Tuesday.

Coventry Form, squad news, opinion

It was shaping up to be a famous season for Coventry after they won seven of their first nine games to put them within touching distance of the automatic promotion places.

But the hustle and bustle of the Championship has caught up with them during the colder months, seeing them win only three times since the start of November.

They’re also starting to find clean sheets difficult to come by, with just one shutout in their last eight Championship games – and even that came against a desperately out-of-form Birmingham City side.

Viktor Gyokeres is certainly the shining light of the Sky Blues squad this season, with the Swede picking up a dozen goals and a handful of assists, while Matt Godden has provided ample support and is in double figures for goals himself.

But aside from those two, goals are a bit thin on the ground, so while we do expect them to bag one in the Welsh capital, we don’t think it’s going to be a particularly high-scoring contest.

Boss Mark Robins has a near clean bill of health as far as injuries and suspensions go.

History

These two have met 52 times down the years and there’s very little to separate them.

Cardiff just edge the head-to-head with 22 wins but Cov aren’t far behind, with 20.

About the Venue

Tuesday night’s clash will take place at the Cardiff City Stadium, which is one of the newer stadiums in the division, after the Welshmen made the move from Ninian Park in 2009.

The 33,000-seater is also home to the Welsh national side.

Conclusion

It’s perhaps not the most exciting game on paper, but the Championship has a knack of throwing up entertaining games when we least expect it.

Both sides are keen to build up a more sustained run of unbeaten games, and with neither showing great form at home or away respectively, we expect these two to play out a competitive draw that would suit both sides.
