‘Season is over’ – Cardiff City vs Sunderland prediction: The72

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

Cardiff City were beaten 2-0 by rivals Swansea City in their last Championship outing. They were unbeaten in five games heading into that before the stinging defeat to their South Welsh neighbours, so they’ll be keen to bounce back against Sunderland.

The Bluebirds are positioned in 11th place in the table. Erol Bulut and co are eight points off the play-offs with eight games left of the season to play.

As for Sunderland, they are 12th and are five points behind their upcoming opponents. The Black Cats drew 0-0 at home to QPR last time out before the international break.

It has been a tough spell for the North East outfit. They have Mike Dodds in interim charge until the summer following Michael Beale’s exit, but the change has not yielded an upturn in form.

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

Cardiff City still have an outside chance of making the play-offs but face an uphill battle still.

The Bluebirds haven’t had a bad campaign under Erol Bulut but will be disappointed after their loss to Swansea City.

Sunderland‘s season is over and their chances of making the top six have all but faded away. The Black Cats are winless in their last seven outings in a run of fixtures spanning back to mid-February.

They need to regroup in the summer and get their next managerial appointment right. I can see the hosts narrowly sneaking a win here.”

Cardiff City vs Sunderland prediction: 1-0

Who is this?

James Ray

“This is another winnable game for Cardiff City as they look to keep their late play-off hopes alive. The defeat to Swansea City was a bruising one, so they have to bounce back in style here.

“And, against a struggling Sunderland side that has been hit by some key injuries, I can see the Bluebirds getting back to winning ways in fairly routine fashion.

“The Black Cats’ attack has been toothless without Jack Clarke and I think the hosts will be the latest to make them pay for that. I’ll say Cardiff win 2-0 here.”

Cardiff City vs Sunderland prediction: 2-0
