Bitesize Prediction: Cardiff City vs West Brom – 28/11/23

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 2/5 @ 1xBet

In what could prove to be an enjoyable affair on Tuesday night, Cardiff will welcome West Brom to south Wales in midweek.

Starting with the hosts, while Cardiff might have only just clung to their Championship status last season, the Bluebirds have made a string of improvements this time around. Marking their return from November’s international break with another eye-catching performance as they clinched a 2-1 victory away at Preston, Erol Bulut’s side are certainly riding an extended wave of momentum. Despite heading into the fortnight interval with an action-packed 3-2 defeat against Norwich, that is the only loss that they have suffered from their previous five battles against Championship opposition. With their sights now firmly set on clinching a shock play-off ticket this season, the one-time Fenerbahce boss has also seen his squad gain a reputation for their lively outcomes. Including a stellar 4-0 romp away at Huddersfield on October 24th, it should be highlighted that Cardiff have seen eight of their last 10 showdowns finish with over 1.5 goals.

As for the visitors, while West Brom might have opened up the 2023/24 campaign in the midst of a public struggle, the Baggies have come roaring back in some style. Marking their return from November’s international break with a major statement of intent as they secured a 2-0 win at home against automatic promotion contenders Ipswich, Carlos Corberan’s side have also skyrocketed their way into the playoff places. In fact, along with opening up November thanks to a stellar 3-1 romp against Hull, the ex-Huddersfield boss has seen his high-flying squad win four of their previous five Championship appearances. Appearing to have found a real clinical edge in the final third, West Brom should also be excited by an eye-catching record against Tuesday’s hosts. Snatching a 1-1 stalemate when they last travelled to south Wales back on March 15th, Corberan’s men have lost just one of their last seven contests against the Bluebirds.
