HUDDERSFIELD VS CARDIFF
KICK OFF: Saturday 25TH JULY 2018 | 16:00 CET
Premier League wk3 | JOHN SMITHS STADIUM
Can Huddersfield End Cardiff hoodoo with a Win against an Old Foe?
The two sides were together in the championship from 2012 to 2017 and Cardiff never lost to Huddersfield. Is this the time for Huddersfield to settle the score?
Huddersfield suffered a 3 – 0 loss to Chelsea, and they must pick themselves up to battle one of their trickiest opponents on home turf. We saw a side that played with passion, desire, and togetherness, and David Wagner believes his team’s character can see off opponents. They must be confident and aggressive if they are to defeat Cardiff.
The Bluebirds introduction to the Premier League ended with a loss away to Bournemouth. Cardiff were not clinical enough in their passing, and Neil Warnock observed later that they have to improve. That said, Cardiff will have to adapt to top-flight football to compete with experienced teams.
The caveat with fixtures like this is that the superior team always display assertiveness on any given day. Therefore, it’s worth backing Cardiff to score regardless of the final result.
Key Match Facts
