Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Callum Paterson. The Cardiff midfielder has started just one game this season, but was one of the Bluebirds most important players last season, scoring 10 goals and providing four assists, with his solo appearance giving him something of a Premier League preview. Against Burnley, the Scottish international would be a valuable asset, able to mix it up in the centre of the park whilst providing a threat going forward. 

19/4 Paterson to score anytime

2 We fancy:

A low scoring game. Between them Cardiff and Burnley have scored just 10 goals so far this season, and despite conceding a lot of goals in recent weeks, the Bluebirds are likely to put in a better defensive performance against the Clarets, so it’s worth keeping that in mind in football score predictions.

One to Watch: Aaron Lennon

The former Tottenham winger played one of his best games in years against Bournemouth, and was the star of the show. His goal and assist aside, it was Lennon’s all-round performance that made him stand out, making more tackles than any Cherries player and instigating the majority of his side’s best attacks. If Sean Dyche can keep his man at this level then Burnley’s resurgence will surely continue.

Having conceded nine goals in two league games, Neil Warnock may rotate his back line, handing Jazz Richards a start on the right. Nathan Mendez-Laing is sidelined, meaning that Danny Ward is sure to start up front.

Sean Dyche will be tempted to field the same XI that beat Bournemouth so comprehensively last week. If that is the case  Mattia Vydra will start in behind Same Vokes, with Ben Mee and James Tarkowski reunited in central defence in Ben Gibson’s absence. 

Cardiff City vs Burnley Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Sean Dyche takes Burnley to Cardiff this weekend

Two of the Premier League bottom five face off on Sunday as Cardiff host Burnley. The Bluebirds have lost their last four games in a row and will be desperate to turn their fortunes around, even though most pre-season football predictions had the Welsh side among the strugglers.

Cardiff are 6/4 to win, and will be glad to host Burnley having faced Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal in their past three games. Although the manner of the defeats was disheartening, Warnock’s side were never likely to get points from the top six sides, although have to do so against the likes of Burnley if they are to stay up, though the majority of Premier League predictions would still favour the visitors.

Burnley are 2/1 to win having finally taken their first three points in the league this season. Bizarrely given their struggles so far, the Clarets hammered Bournemouth, earning a high margin of victory than any game last term. This will have massively impacted on Dyche’s side’s confidence, potentially giving them an edge on Sunday in the weekend football predictions.

A draw is 2/1 and may be realistic given that neither sides have been prolific going forward this season, so one of the football betting tips for the weekend is to look at low-scoring options. A draw would do the trick for Burnley, whilst another other than a loss would surely be a positive for Warnock’s side given their current run. 

Danny Ward is 6/1 to score first, and has had a thankless task so far, isolated up front on his own and rarely troubling the football score predictions. Against Burnley however, the forward should be able to get back to his normal self, receiving more service and playing predominantly in the opposition box.

Ashley Barnes is 5/1 to hit the target, having scored twice after coming off the bench against Bournemouth. Having opened his account for the season, the striker will be itching to start, after playing just 20 minutes at the weekend and could be a factor in the football bet tips and predictions.

Predicted Score: Cardiff City 0 - 1 Burnley
