Competition: EFL Cup
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
Two sides who should find the moods in their camp at a real high, Cardiff will welcome Premier League outfit Brighton to South Wales on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Cardiff might have just about missed out on a play-off spot last season, Mick McCarthy’s side have really came flying out the traps this time around. With their sights set on mounting a real top-six charge this year, The Blues will have undoubtedly been boosted by an eye-catching performance on home soil over the weekend. With some in their camp smelling the chance to pick up a Premier League scalp on Tuesday night, the former Wolves boss saw his side land a thumping 3-1 win against Millwall in South Wales. Bouncing back from that action-packed 2-2 draw against Championships returners Peterborough on August 17th, Cardiff are unbeaten in all five of their competitive matchups since opening the 2021/22 campaign. Extending on their EFL Cup run earlier in the month with a 3-2 win against Sutton, we could see chances come thick and fast here.
As for the visitors, while Brighton might have signed off their pre-season preparations with a 2-0 defeat at home against Spanish outfit Getafe earlier in the month, The Seagulls have opened their Premier League run with a real bounce. Briefly climbing to second in the table on Saturday night as they picked up a deserved 2-0 win against Watford at the Amex, Head Coach Graham Potter has been right to praise his side. Opening the 2021/22 campaign with a turnaround 2-1 victory away at a rugged Burnley, Brighton appear to have built off of their eye-catching end to last season’s run. Including a stunning 3-2 win against Premier League champions Manchester City back in May, there is no doubt that the former Swansea boss will be desperate to get on over on his former rivals in midweek.
