It is clear from last Saturday's Premier League that Brighton which is on the 17th position with active of 33 points and Cardiff City is one position below Brighton with active of 28 points so far, will be among the last to relegate unless the script of the past few weeks is dramatic. How fitting that on Tuesday evening in a catch-up game of the 31st round the Bluebirds will face their rivals of Cardiff City on the English south coast at the Amex Stadium.
Currently speaks relatively much for a renewed descent of a Welsh team for the second year in a row. Cardiff City was not really fortunate at the time, some would say Neil Warnock's squad was severely penalized by refereeing decisions at critical and decisive moments in a game. Just look at the recent encounters with Burnley, Chelsea or Watford. It's no wonder that Warnock also presented himself extremely contrite in front of the TV cameras on Saturday after a 0:2 in East Lancashire. Another factor that clearly speaks against Cardiff in the relegation battle is the catastrophic away from home form.
Head-to-Head: 23 wins Brighton & Hove Albion - 22 draws - 23 wins Cardiff City
The home team has lost just one of the previous nine league games at home against Cardiff (3-5-1). In addition, the Seagulls have been unbeaten against Cardiff City (1-4-0) since beating home in a 2:1 loss in October 2005 in the Championship for five home duels. However, the Bluebirds won the first leg 2:1 in November but have not been able to win both the first and second leg against Brighton since the 1998/99 season.
The Welsh are not bursting with self-confidence. Poor scores and dubious refereeing decisions seem to have made Cardiff believe in relegation. Accordingly, at Brighton against Cardiff, our forecast is both teams to score: NO. Meanwhile, we have another option and it's home won. According to the bookmakers, they are a slightly favourite team in this amazing contest with a great quote of 2.00 at 1xBET.
