Swansea City vs Cardiff City: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 38

A clash for the best team in Wales status headlines Week 38!

The South Wales derby is coming up to the EFL Championship this week, as Swansea City will host Cardiff City. Match will begin on Saturday, March 16, at 1:30 PM CET.

Swansea City

After spending nearly a decade in the Premier League, the Swans fell to the Championship and despite their best efforts are yet to make it back to the topflight. This season, however, Swansea tumbled down to the bottom half of the standings.

Losing at Bristol City last week left the Welsh team five points above the dreaded cutline to the relegation zone. Earning multiple wins, similar to their streak before a visit to the Robins, would be massive, as the upcoming derby is a good chance to do just that.

Cardiff City

Unable to keep their spot in the Premier League longer for a year, the Bluebirds from Cardiff City have struggled in the Championship, finishing 18th and 21st in the last two campaigns.

This one was not looking hot either, but a four game win streak has suddenly turned the tide in the team’s favor. Sitting in tenth place, with nine games still to be played, Cardiff City is only five points away from a Norwich City-Hull City duo at sixth. However, while making playoffs is a reality, there is still a key derby to be played.

Prediction ⚽️

The Bluebirds won in the first round, beating Swansea City “2-0” and after miraculously beating Ipswich Town due to a pair of extra time goals last week, Cardiff City is going to be an emotional favorite.

While the Swans are sportsbook darlings in the upcoming one, we will side with the “guests” not losing in this one and keeping pace in the playoffs race with 1.85 odds 🔥.
