Cardiff take on visitors Coventry at Cardiff City Stadium in a Championship tie on Tuesday.

Cardiff are placed 15 with seven points after six matches. Coventry occupy a position as 14 in the league on seven points.

The unsatisfactory results in recent Championship rounds left morale in tatters at Coventry. A win this coming Tuesday against Cardiff could be key to turning the tide again.

Cardiff are relatively average in the art of goal-scoring these days. They scored a steady 14 goals in their previous ten matches, for an average of 1.4 per game. They simultaneously allowed their opponents 17 goals, or an average of 1.7 a game. Furthermore, they fought their way to one clean sheets in this run.

Coventry are currently decent goalscorers, as they managed a bearable 12 goals in the past ten outings for an average of 1.2 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of nine goals, and while Coventry claimed four clean sheets, they conceded an average of 0.9 goals per match.

Betting on the draw would have earned you a sound profit the last time Cardiff played Coventry. The pair split the points in a 0-0 match, where no one managed to get the upper hand.

Cardiff vs Coventry Prediction

Cardiff Form

Cardiff have been a little inconsistent recently, as they beat Birmingham by 1-3. Following that up proved too difficult, as they lost 3-2 against Ipswich, before claiming three points in a 2-0 win against Swansea. Cardiff only pulled off two wins from a possible six in recent Championship matches on home soil. Of the remaining four matches, they drew one and lost three, as they scored seven and conceded seven goals.

A top half finish is the dream target for Cardiff, although keeping their Championship status for another season has to be the priority.

Coventry Form

In their previous three matches, Coventry drew 0-0 with Sunderland, 3-3 with Watford and 1-1 with Hull. Coventry claimed just one win from the last six away games in the Championship. They also drew four and were defeated one times, as they were outscored by six goals to six.

Cardiff’s priority for this season will be to stay clear of the relegation zone, while challenging for a spot in the upper half of the Championship.

For whatever reason, Coventry and Cardiff usually find goals tough to come by, when facing each other, and history makes under 2.5 goals our call here.

Cardiff won six points from their last three encounters with teams from the bottom six, like their upcoming opponent. They won two, scored five and let in three goals. Cardiff only drew once so far this season after six games played, in stead recording two wins and three defeats in the Championship. Coventry put one win, four draws and one defeat on the board in the Championship.
