Cardiff vs Wolves Prediction & Betting Tips

Even though Cardiff are just a spot away from the bottom of the Premier League table, they are hoping they can take advantage of the disastrous form of Wolves, who won only 1 point in the last 5 rounds. Still, it seems that the quality is on the side of the Wonderers, but the Welsh side are hoping that the crowd from the stands of Cardiff City Stadium can lead them to glory. So, what to expect from Cardiff vs Wolves game? Well, you better take a look at the Cardiff vs Wolves match prediction and betting tips!

Cardiff City have only 8 points, which is the same as Fulham, the team that’s at the very bottom of the table. But, Fulham have a bit worse goal difference. The good news for Cardiff is that there are a couple of teams that are basically in the same situation as them. This means that with a couple of good performances they could get away from the relegation zone in the next few weeks.

And they have a couple of easier challenges in the near future. But, is the game against Wolves one of those? Well, Cardiff did manage to beat them last season when these two played in the Championship. But, they did it only once, when the game was played in Wolverhampton. When the match was played at the Cardiff City Stadium, the score was 1:0 for Wolves.

Speaking of games at Cardiff’s home ground, both of the Premier League games they won this season happened at their turf. Their goal difference at home is 9:14, which is pretty good comparing to what they did on the road. Their goal difference away from the stadium is 2:12.


Wolves are in a bad situation right now. Their position on the table is still pretty good, but their form is on a very poor level. The fact that they lost 4 out of 5 previous matches shows that something is wrong in the club. And something needs to be changed ASAP.

They need to perform well against Cardiff, as otherwise, their manager Nuno Espirito Santo might get sacked. The odds on him being the next manager to leave the post are dropping fast. Of course, their form can easily change and turn into a spectacular one. Why I think that is that this team plays well when they’re under pressure. This team loves big matches!

And that’s what they showed in the game against Arsenal in London, when the score was 1:1. The same result was when they played against Manchester United in Manchester, as well as when they played against Manchester City at home.

If they could play so well against such strong teams as those three aforementioned, why wouldn’t they do great against one of the worst teams in the Premier League?

Cardiff vs Wolves Prediction

Wolves are just better of the two and I think they will show it. With a win on Friday evening, Wolves would get back on the right track and keep on fighting for a spot in the top half of the table. Cardiff, on the other hand, just don’t have good enough players to win points this time.
