Cardiff News and Form
Cardiff have to produce a win here. Last weekend they missed a big opportunity at the already relegated Fulham to get something on the board. The Bluebirds lost that game 1-0. That is back to back league defeats for them now and they have lost five of their last six played. Cardiff have failed to hit the back of the net in four of their last five. On home soil, they have also taken back to back defeats, but those were tough games against Chelsea and Liverpool.
The overall home form of Cardiff this season is W6 D2 L10 but all of the wins that they have taken have been against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. The Bluebirds are actually W5 D2 L1 in their eight home games this season against teams currently 11th or lower. So that’s a pretty good return. Cardiff have averaged just a tiny shade over a goal per home game. 61% of Cardiff’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals. They have been level at half time in 10 of their home games.

Crystal Palace played out a 0-0 home draw against Everton last weekend. They not playing for anything at the moment, but the notable thing about their season so they have done a lot better away from home than at Selhurst Park. So that could be bad news for Cardiff. Palace have won four of their last five away games (L1) and that is part of an overall away record of W8D2 L8 that they have produced so far. In their away games Palace have scored at an average of 1.6 goals per game.
So they certainly have the form behind them. But they will be facing a very desperate Cardiff side. Of the eight away wins that they have taken this season, four have been by one goal margin and four by a two-goal margin. Palace have actually been ahead at the halftime break in exactly half of their away games, which is a superb return. They have, however, conceded 79% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures.
