One of the bigger games in England on Tuesday night, Cardiff take on West Brom in a clash between two sides around the playoff places in the Championship. While West Brom hoped to be challenging, this is way better than what I expected from Cardiff. As we go into the games on Tuesday night, West Brom are 5th and in the playoffs, while Cardiff are 7th and one point outside of them.Cardiff Form Guide
I have to applaud Cardiff for what they have done this season, it has been way above my expectations, and also well above what their own fans expected. But of course, now they have a little pressure on them to keep things up, and they are just one point behind the playoffs right now.
It was a thrilling ending to their game on Saturday, which ultimately resulted in them taking three points from a tough away trip to Preston. After going 1-0 up, Preston went down to 10 men. Cardiff couldn't break them down until right at the death, scoring in the 96th and 99th minutes to win the game 2-1, and send the away fans home very happy.West Brom Form Guide
I personally thought West Brom would be in the top half of the table, but maybe just miss out on the playoffs in what looks to be a very competitive Championship this season. But they are currently in the top six, sitting in 5th position with 29 points, and eight wins from their first 17 games.
They've won four and lost one of their last five, a run that has been excellent and taken them up the table, with the best of those wins probably being their victory on Saturday evening. They won 2-0 at home against second placed Ipswich, a side who have been going great, West Brom really made a statement with that win.Match Prediction
This should be a really good game, both sides have a chance, but I am going to go with West Brom, who are playing their best football of the season right now, and come here on the back of a big win, so it's West Brom for me.
