Cardiff – Wolves : Preview & Prediction
The 41st matchday of the English Premier League, the Championship, kicks off on Friday with a big game: second-placed Cardiff host Wolverhampton in a game whose kick-off is scheduled for 19: 45. The home team are in second place with 80 points, with six – and one minus one – from Wolverhampton, who are the isolated leader. Cardiff had eight consecutive victories until they drew 1-1 in the final round in their trip to the Sheffield Wednesday stronghold, with a draw for the Welsh already at a discount. The Wolves drew 2-2 with Hull on Tuesday and broke a three-game winning streak. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are thus very close to stamping their passport to the top tier of English football, simply managing the advantage of 11 points they have for third place, with only 18 remaining to play. In the last five games between the two emblems in Cardiff, the balance is slightly positive for the Welsh, with three wins and two Wolves triumphs. And in the first round of the championship, on day four, the Welsh team got the better of, having won on Wolves ground by two balls to one. Now, with the two formations very close to stamping the climb to the Premier League, who will be the winner?
