Cardiff City vs Hull – Preview, and Prediction

Cardiff City vs Hull -Cardiff City will be looking to pick up their first victory of the season after losing to Millwall 2-0 in the last Championship match.

Cardiff City enjoyed 56% of the possession in that contest and 2 of its 12 efforts on goal were successful. Seven of Millwall’s 16 shots on goal were on target. Millwall scored goals through Charlie Cresswell (63′) and Benik Afobe

The number of nil-result games in more recent Cardiff City matches is an intriguing statistic. A wager on both teams scoring would have lost in as many as 5 of their previous sextet of matches before to this one.

We’ll see if this game follows this tendency, though. Last time out in the Championship, Hull City and their visiting fans lost to Sheffield United.

Hull City possessed the ball for 55% of the game and attempted 11 goals, three of which were successful. Sheffield United’s opponents had 12 attempts at goal, with 5 of those being successful.

Sander Berge (75′) and Oli McBurnie (20′) both scored goals for Sheffield United. The numbers don’t deceive; Hull City has allowed goals in six of their last six games, allowing 14 goals total from their opponents.

Hull City can undoubtedly play much better defence. Hull City had lost all six of its league games played away from home coming into this fixture.
