What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Cardiff
Arsenal suffered a disappointing FA Cup exit when hosting Manchester United but can bounce back with a Premier League triumph over Cardiff.
The Gunners had previously impressed when beating Chelsea in this competition, whereas the Bluebirds are languishing in the bottom three.
City have been struggling badly up front of late and 11/10 for a home win to nil is our opening Arsenal vs Cardiff prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal were undone by United’s pace on the break in their 3-1 defeat on Friday, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s tap-in proving nothing more than a consolation.
Injuries to central defenders Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Laurent Koscielny only made the night worse for Unai Emery.
“In the moment we had the possibility to grow and to win, these injuries – especially the one to Koscielny – didn’t help us because our rhythm went down,” lamented the manager.
However, the Gunners had previously given their top-four hopes a real boost by seeing off Chelsea 2-0 here.
That made it nine wins and two draws in the last 11 Premier League home games, with 26 goals scored in those fixtures and only eight conceded.
Looking at the Arsenal vs Cardiff odds, Emery’s men should dominate possession and 15/2 for a 3-0 victory takes the eye.
Last Arsenal EPL line-up: Leno, Bellerin, Papastathopoulos, Koscielny, Kolasinac, Ramsey, Torreira, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
A Look At Cardiff City’s Betting Odds
Cardiff’s relegation odds were cut after they fell to a 3-0 defeat at Newcastle, which allowed the Magpies to climb above them and out of the drop zone.
Neil Warnock said: “I felt quite comfortable and then, all of a sudden, we conceded a sloppy goal. It’s poor defending, really.
“That’s the final third, really. They were better than us in the final third and they took advantage of that.”
That made it four games without a goal for the Bluebirds, who have only netted once in the last six matches in all competitions.
Sadly, City’s attempt to address that problem led to the tragic disappearance of £18million club-record signing Emiliano Sala following his signing from Nantes.
Warnock will ensure the Welsh outfit battles on, but this looks a daunting test at this point, so 17/10 for the Gunners to oblige by more than two clear goals is added to our Arsenal vs Cardiff betting tips.
Last Cardiff line-up: Etheridge, Peltier, Bennett, Ecuele Manga, Paterson, Bamba, Ralls, Camarasa, Mendez-Laing, Niasse, Hoilett.
ARSENAL 1-3 Man Utd – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Newcastle 3-0 CARDIFF
Head-to-head: Cardiff 2-3 Arsenal
