What Trueform says for Cardiff vs Brighton
Brighton couldn’t extend their winning run when visiting Everton but should find Cardiff more conducive company in Wales this weekend.
The Bluebirds received a high Trueform rating for beating Fulham 4-2 recently but that result is starting to look like a flash in the pan.
City have lost seven of their last eight Premier League games and 2/1 for Albion to prevail appeals for our opening Cardiff vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Cardiff City’s Betting Odds
Cardiff fell into the bottom three when losing out 1-0 at home to Leicester on an emotional day for football in general.
Neil Warnock suggested the death of Foxes owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha affected the way his side prepared for that fixture.
“It’s been a strange week, surreal really, and I’m glad it’s out of the way if I’m honest,” the manager said.
“The players gave everything but it’s been difficult this week, for three or four lads in particular.
“Whether it’s triggered things up I don’t know, but training’s not been the same and we had to have a word with them that we’ve got to play the game.”
Even so, it was another disappointing result for the Bluebirds, who look short on quality at this level.
Last Cardiff line-up: Etheridge, Bennett, Morrison, Ecuele Manga, Bamba, Arter, Murphy, Paterson, Reid, Gunnarsson, Camarasa.
Cardiff are without the suspended Harry Arter, but fellow midfielder Joe Ralls is available after completing a three-match ban and recovering from a chipped bone in his knee.
Jazz Richards (hamstring) and Kenneth Zohore (calf) have joined Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (knee) and Lee Peltier (shoulder) on the sidelines, but striker Danny Ward is fit.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton did well to go into the interval on level terms at Goodison Park, with Lewis Dunk cancelling out Richarlison’s opener.
However, the Toffees upped the tempo after the break and ultimately ran out worthy 3-1 winners.
“We needed to come out in the second half better than we did,” said Chris Hughton. “But we were up against a very good team who will push the top six and we made too many errors to come away with something.”
Nevertheless, Brighton had won their previous three matches against West Ham, Newcastle and Wolves, so spirits should still be high.
All of those games finished 1-0 and 29/4 for a repeat scoreline in Wales is worth adding to our Cardiff vs Brighton betting tips.
Glenn Murray has already netted six times in the top flight this term, while no Bluebirds player has bagged more than two.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Bruno, Bong, Duffy, Dunk, Stephens, Kayal, March, Jahanbakhsh, Murray, Izquierdo.
Alireza Jahanbakhsh is a major doubt for Brighton after picking up a minor hamstring strain. Midfielders Pascal Gross and Davy Propper (both ankle) remain sidelined.
