Swansea City vs Cardiff City

, KO: 12:30 Mar 16, 2024, Swansea.com Stadium
Cardiff City

It is the Welsh derby on Saturday as Swansea City host Cardiff City in a Championship fixture. Cardiff have caught the eye in recent weeks and can avoid defeat against the Swans, who have been out of sorts lately.

Swansea City are coming off a 1-0 defeat to Bristol City in their previous Championship fixture. They saw plenty of possession but lacked the cutting edge in attack, finishing without a single attempt on target.

The Swans have found things difficult lately, claiming just three wins from their last 13 matches across all competitions. Luke Williams’ men are 15th on the table and in that weird position where they are well clear of the relegation zone but battling for little further up the table.

Swansea City did pick up a 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers in their previous Championship home fixture. However, they had suffered four straight defeats at the Swansea.com Stadium prior to that win.

Cardiff City travel to Swansea off the back of a 2-1 victory over Ipswich Town last time out in the Championship. They fought back from a goal down with injury time efforts from Ryan Wintle and Callum O’Dowda earning them the win.

That was the fourth straight victory for Cardiff City, who have caught the eye in recent weeks. Erol Bulut’s men are currently 11th on the standings but may have an outside chance of a playoff finish as they sit just five points off the top six.

While things are not as smooth on the road for Cardiff City, there have been a few key wins on their recent travels. Among those wins is a 1-0 victory at Bristol City in their previous away fixture.
