Brighton vs Cardiff City Betting Preview – 16/04/2019

Brighton vs Cardiff City

The AMEX Stadium will be home to Cardiff City this Tuesday where they will face Brighton & Hove Albion. Both sides could do with the full three points with them entering the final few weeks of the season sat down in or around the relegation zone. The Seagulls sit five points ahead of their opponents and also hold a game in hand. This is a must-win game for Neil Warnock’s men in their attempt to climb free of the relegation zone, which should make for an interesting fixture, with the first meeting between these sides seeing Cardiff take the three points with a 2-1 win.

The 2018/19 Premier League season has not been one of Brighton’s finest displays with them threatened with relegation, as we enter the last stages of the campaign. A win for the hosts would put eight points between them and the relegation zone which would relieve a lot of pressure for Chris Hughton. The South Coast side arrive in poor form which has seen them lose their last four games on the bounce following their previous 5-0 defeat to Bournemouth. Chris Hughton’s men return to the AMEX Stadium for this fixture where they have lost their last two matches. SkyBet has the hosts to win priced at 19/20.

As well as losing their last four games, Brighton arrive at this fixture having failed to score in their last four matches. Bet365 has the hosts to fail to score once again priced at 11/4. The last time these outfits met this, season both sides featured on the scoresheet and Bet365 has both teams to score again priced at 21/20. With his side in poor goalscoring form, all eyes will turn to Glenn Murray who has once again provided the majority of his side’s goals this season. Murray has 13 goals this season and has a price of 23/20 to score anytime with Betway.

Cardiff City will be hoping they can find some late form in the season to lift them free of the relegation zone, as at their current rate they will be returning to the Championship. Three points for Cardiff would bring them within two points of Brighton who sit above them in 17th. The Bluebirds have won just one of their last five games alongside four defeats and arrive having lost three on the bounce. Their latest fixture saw them suffer a 2-0 defeat to Burnley. If you fancy the underdog’s chances then they have a price of 16/5 to win with SkyBet.

Neil Warnock’s 2-0 defeat to Burnley marked the second consecutive game they have lost 2-0 and the third in their last five games. SkyBet has them to lose 2-0 again priced at 8/1. The last time these sides met Cardiff won 2-1 and a repeat result has odds of 16/1 with Bet365. Víctor Camarasa sits as his sides top goalscorer with five goals this season and is the most recent player to score for Cardiff. Betway has Camarasa to score priced at 4/1.
