West Bromwich Albion vs Cardiff City Prediction and Betting Tips | February 13th 2024


The EFL Championship returns with a fresh set of fixtures as West Bromwich Albion play host to Cardiff City on Tuesday.

The Bluebird have failed to win their last five games against the home side since January 2020 and will journey to the Hawthorns looking to end this poor run.

West Bromwich Albion were denied consecutive league wins for the first time this year as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Ipswich Town on Saturday.

This followed a 1-0 home victory over Birmingham City on February 3 which saw their two-game losing streak come to an end.

With 49 points from 30 matches, West Brom are currently fifth in the Championship table, two points above seventh-placed Sunderland just outside the playoff places.

Meanwhile, Cardiff City were sent crashing back to earth last time out as they fell to a 2-0 defeat against Preston North End on home turf.

Prior to that, Erol Bulut’s men snapped their three-game losing streak in all competitions on February 3 courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Watford at Vicarage Road.

With 40 points from 30 matches, Cardiff City are currently 14th in the league table but could move into 11th place with all three points on Tuesday.
