Analysis of Chelsea Vs Cardiff City Betting Tips
Chelsea should be strong favourites to continue their sterling start to the season when they welcome Cardiff City to London and Stamford Bridge. The Blues have had an impressive run, with the Community Shield loss to Manchester City a far distant memory, notching up wins against Huddersfield, Arsenal, Bournemouth and Newcastle. Equally impressive and resplendent of the quality of a title-winning side were the games against Arsenal and Newcastle. Against a Newcastle side that shored up much resistance, the Blue had to wait, resolutely, until the 76th minute to open the scoring account. However, with the equaliser arriving seven minutes later, the Blues had to dig deep again to come up with the win, to take home the three points.
A convincing start to the season continued with Chelsea hitting the Cherries hard with a 2 – 0 win, with 24 shots coming up in the Cherries’ half.
Chelsea midfield superstar, Eden Hazard is back on form, firing on all cylinders, as the Belgian led his side to convincing wins against Scotland and Iceland during the Internationals.
Cardiff City, meanwhile, has their hands full as they come up against the 2017 Premier League champions. The visitors, promoted from the Championship this season, have had an uneventful start to the season. Losing on opening day to Bournemouth, the Bluebirds, however, recorded draws against Newcastle and Huddersfield. However, putting up a strong performance against Arsenal, having fought the Gunners fire for fire, going down twice, and getting the scores level each time, the Bluebirds were unable to hold out for a draw as they went down again in the 81st minute.
Bluebirds’ boss, Neil Warnock, has put up a strong defensive side and would be hoping his side can ward off advances from the Blues while working to get on the scoresheet for only the second time this season.
