Cardiff City +1200 / Liverpool -455 / Draw +500
Cardiff City will host Liverpool for a match in the English Premier League.
Cardiff City are fighting to avoid relegation and the team will be desperate to get any points possible. Cardiff City played midweek and received a huge boost as the team managed to win 2-0 away from home at Brighton. During the win, Cardiff City only had 36% of the ball but the team defended extremely well and were very efficient at converting their chances. Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Sean Morrison were both very impressive as both players scored for Cardiff City. This will be a significantly tougher match for Cardiff as they are playing an elite team in Liverpool.
On the other side of the coin, Liverpool won midweek in the Champions League as they beat FC Porto away from home. Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino were all very good during the win as all three attacking players scored. As it currently stands, Liverpool must win all their remaining games to ensure they can maintain a fight with Manchester City. Travelling away from home to Wales has caused problems for some big teams but considering the current form that Liverpool possesses, the Reds should expect to win.
Liverpool and Cardiff City met earlier in the season at Anfield. Liverpool won 4-1 on that occasion. Sadio Mane was the star player for Liverpool on that occasion as the winger score 2 goals. Shaqiri and Salah also scored for Liverpool during that game. Callum Paterson was the lone goal scorer for Cardiff City.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Liverpool to win this match. The Reds are significantly stronger than Cardiff City and I am expecting Liverpool to have 100% focus as they continue their fight for the Premier League title. The Reds to get all 3 points.
