‘Have to be careful’ – Swansea City vs Cardiff City prediction: The72

The72’s writers offer their Swansea City vs Cardiff City prediction ahead of the Championship clash on Saturday.

Swansea City head into their upcoming Championship clash on the back of their 1-0 loss away at Bristol City last time out. They are currently only five points above the drop zone.

The Swans have nine matches left to play this season. Luke Williams has won four of his first 13 games since taking over from Michael Duff.

As for Cardiff City, they are sat in 11th place in the table. They are only five points off the play-offs.

The Bluebirds beat automatic promotion chasers Ipswich Town 2-1 in dramatic fashion last weekend. Ryan Wintle and Callum O’Dowda scored for them in added-on time against the Tractor Boys.

Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…

Harry Mail

Swansea City have been very inconsistent this season and need to pick up some more wins to avoid getting dragged into trouble at the bottom end of the table.

Cardiff City, on the other hand, will be in confident mood right now as they head into this derby clash. Erol Bulut’s men have won their last four games on the spin and are unbeaten in their last five outings.

“They remain in with a shout of getting into the top six if they can keep their momentum going. I think the Bluebirds will sneak a big win here against their rivals, although it should be a close one.”

Who is this?

James Ray

Cardiff City have found form at the right time and with arch rivals Swansea City up this weekend, there wouldn’t be a sweeter way for them to make it five consecutive Championship wins.

“The Swans have to be careful that they still don’t get dragged closer to the bottom three. For what it’s worth, I think they should have enough points and enough games to steer clear of the drop, but they have to avoid going on a real slide as they have before.

“The momentum is with the visitors and I think that will show. I’ll go for a 2-0 Cardiff win.”
