Cardiff to Win at Half Time and Full Time

The difference between Championship and National League is too big for Sutton to overcome it, so our prediction for this game is for Cardiff to win the match after leading at half time. These two teams didn’t meet before, so we don’t have their head-to-head history to base our prediction on, but we simply can’t see Sutton getting anything in this game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Since we expect to see a convincing performance by Cardiff, we think that this game could go over 2.5 total goals, with Cardiff scoring most, if not all of them. Last season, Cardiff averaged 2.5 goals per game in the Championship, while Sutton averaged 2.34 goals per game in the league, so they should combine for at least three goals.

James Collins to Score Anytime

The starting forward for Cardiff City and a member of the Republic of Ireland national team didn’t have the best of seasons last year since he only scored ten goals in the Championship. He also failed to score in the first game that Cardiff played in the new season, so he could use a boost and the duel with Sutton seems like a perfect opportunity for him to score at least once.

Cardiff vs Sutton preview: An easy job for Cardiff?

While we all expect the home team to dominate the match, the guests will no give up that easily. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their duel:

Cardiff

The Welsh team finished the last season in the Championship in the eighth place, but they were too far away in terms of points to making it into the playoffs. So, Cardiff will probably hope for a chance to improve on the last season and at least reach the playoffs to try and earn the promotion to the Premier League that way. Their first game of the season against Barnsley ended in a draw, however, so they could use a confidence boost in the EFL Cup.

Sutton

After finishing the last season in the National League in the 14th spot in the standings, Sutton will be hoping for a better placement this season, although they are not among the main favourites for promotion. The team also didn’t have any luck in the EFL Cup draw since they have to play away from home against a Championship team, so we’ll see whether they can overcome that and surprise everyone.
