Cardiff City vs. Wes Ham United Match Analysis and Prediction

Cardiff City will host West Ham United on Saturday 9th March 2019 at the Cardiff City Stadium. The match will start at 15.00GMT. Cardiff City has been struggling of late and is thus considered the underdog on the Saturday fixture. West Ham United, on the other hand, has been doing relatively well.

The Bluebirds’ last Saturday 0-2 loss to Wolverhampton extended their losing streak to 3 premier league matches in a row. This has condemned them to the dreaded relegation zone at number 18. With their current form, we don’t expect them to offer much resistance against West Ham United.

The Hammers, on the other hand, hammered Newcastle United over the weekend making them fall within the first half of the Premier League table standings at number 9. They pride themselves having won their first leg fixture with a 3-1 score against Cardiff City. With their main man, Chicharito, they are confident of picking three points from Cardiff City Stadium as well.

Cardiff City has been struggling at the back recently. Their defense has become porous making it is for their opponents to score against them. West Ham United has maintained their relatively good performance and this puts them on a better position to score against the struggling Cardiff City. With Chicharito in the starting lineup, we will be tempted to place our money for West Ham United to win.
