It's been a bizarre start to the season for Cardiff, who came out of the traps flying to win five of their first six matches. Their next six matches saw them lose five from six, before dishing out thumpings to Derby and Watford to get their promotion campaign back on track. Indeed, the international break came at the wrong time for the Bluebirds after scoring ten goals in total against the Rams and Hornets, although they will still be buzzing when Crystal Palace come to town. Striker Michael Chopra is scoring goals for fun this term and Joe Ledley will return from suspension to pull the strings in midfield.
The Eagles are set for a season of struggle, despite having wily manager Neil Warnock at the helm. Palace probably deserve to have more points on the board after wrongly having a goal disallowed at Bristol City this season, while their last away game saw them win at West Brom. However, this is a young team whose heads might drop if they fall a goal behind and Cardiff have already dished out 6-1 and 4-0 thrashings at their new stadium this term. Best odds for the Cardiff win is 1.85 at Bwin.
