Derby County vs Cardiff City Prediction 18 March 2018

Tournament: Football League Championship
Location: iPro Stadium
Match date: 18.03.2018 at 12:00

On March 18 2018 at 12:00 in the forthcoming regular match of the 38th game week of the English Football League Championship at the iPro Stadium the local Derby County will play against their guests Cardiff City.

Both teams are near the top of the standings. The guests are in the race for the direct promotion while the hosts are fighting for the places in the promotion play-offs which would let them try and make it to the English Premier League. In the latest seven matches played at the Pride Park Derby only managed to outplay Cardiff twice. As you see, the Welsh are really uncomfortable competitors for the hosts.

At the moment Derby are in bad conditions as they haven’t won for seven matches in a row already where they drew five times. They haven’t won for three home matches already. Last time they won was on Match third almost half a month ago. The recession is mostly connected with the fact that Derby have really a lot of players injured in their squad at the moment. The manager seems to be really confused and he doesn’t really know what to do in such a situation. And, let’s be frank, nobody knows.

As for Cardiff City, they are in wonderful conditions now. They haven’t lost for 11 matches in a row already while they won nine times. They gain points in all of their five latest away matches. In fact, they only gained one point less in their away matches than Derby gained at home. Cardiff are the third best team of the league according to the number of points gained in their away matches. In their 18 away matches played they only lost five times and won nine times which is definitely a very solid result.

So, as you see, Cardiff are in wonderful conditions now and they don’t have a lot of serious problems with defense while we can’t say the same about Derby. All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that the visitors are going to avoid a loss in the upcoming match.
