The inevitable finally happened on Friday as Cardiff City sacked Malky MacKay with the club just one point outside the bottom three. They know their game against bottom club Sunderland is vital as the Black Cats can haul themselves out of the bottom three with a win.
Cardiff have lost their last two matches now and have won just one of their last eight, with the club in turmoil behind the scenes, it now appears things aren’t great on the pitch. They take on a Sunderland side who are perhaps are starting to find a bit of form and are unbeaten in their last four in all competitions, picking up a first win of the season on the road at Everton.
With Cardiff in crisis, Sunderland will fancy themselves to pick up a win here and I do too. Not enough to go for them outright but at 11/8 with Bet365 for Sunderland draw no bet this is a good price against a Cardiff side on a downward spiral.
I don’t fancy many goals in this match but the price on under 2.5 isn’t particularly good. However, you can get 19/20 with Winner on both teams not to score. Only one of Cardiff’s last five matches at the Cardiff City Stadium have seen both teams score and none of Sunderland’s last seven on the road have seen both teams score, it looks a good price for two teams who haven’t been full of goals of late.
With my fear this will be a dull game, you can get 2/1 with bet365 that this game will have under 1.5 goals. Two teams lacking confidence and form shouldn’t produce a cracker and a 0-0 or 1-0 either way looks the best shout so this looks a good price at 2/1.
