Meanwhile two out of three freshers of EPL are adapting to the high division with great difficulty. Also the Welsh team which together with Fulham finishes the standings belongs to these two teams.
Neil Warnock‘s football players have won two victories at home stadium. At first they have managed to ruin Cottagers in productive style (4:2) then won over Brighton (2:1) with minimum score. The team scored nine of the 11 goals at Cardiff City and this fact is very interesting.
Cardiff can’t be proud of being very accurate assists (64%) and ball possessing (40%) but the team is good at headwork, winning on average for the match 28 matches with headwork. The top scorer of the team Callum Paterson who has scored three goals has a crazy amount of the won single combats (7.9 for the game).
Kenneth Zohore, Jazz Richards and Nathaniel Mendez–Laing will miss the forthcoming match. If the Dane doesn’t participate, then two last will have chances to appear on the field as their recovery is in the final stage.
Nuno Espírito Santo on the contrary, prefers the Portuguese style of combinational football with the team. It means the ball possession at the bottom and emphasis on the fast attacks.
8 out of 12 goals in the championship the Wolves have scored due to the fast attacking combinations. It is also necessary to pay attention that 45% of acts at the rival’s half of the field are made by the right wing where Wolves has Matt Doherty. The midfielder has already scored one goal and two assists in the current season.
The full back Jonatan Castro won’t be able to help the partners with future duel.
Head-to- heads Cardiff vs Wolves
Both teams have synchronously improved in class and haven’t met in of the EPL in the XXI century. Last season they both won away matches with the minimum score.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Cardiff vs Wolves
Cardiff to win – odds 3.89;
Draw – 3.24;
Wolves to win – odds 2.15.
At once four players of the Wolves are wining two and even more headworks for the match, besides Nuno’s team has missed only 27% of the goals after standard positions.
So we doubt that the last season winner of the Championship will have problems in Wales.
