Brentford vs Cardiff Predictions


Brentford have become the draw specialists in the Championship with five stalemates in their last six matches. Cardiff have drawn their last two matches, and another share of the points is tipped.

Over 2.5 goals has been a regular in clashes between these two sides, while over 3.5 goals has hit in three of the last four head to heads. A 2-2 draw is value.

  • Brentford have drawn 5 of their last 6 matches (Championship).
  • Brentford have drawn their last 3 home matches (Championship).
  • Brentford have seen over 2.5 goals in 10 of their last 11 matches against Cardiff (Championship).
  • Brentford have seen over 3.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches against Cardiff (Championship).
  • Cardiff have drawn their last 2 matches (Championship).
  • Cardiff have drawn 3 of their last 5 away matches (Championship).
  • Cardiff have seen over 3.5 goals in 2 of their last 3 matches (Championship).

Head to Head


In the last 11 matches since 2014, there has been very little to split these sides. Brentford have four wins to Cardiff's five with two draws.

Earlier in the season, Brentford won 3-2 at Cardiff. The Bluebirds took the lead through Will Vaulks, but a second-half hat-trick from Sergi Canos sealed the win for Brentford. Vaulks then got a consolation.

Brentford Form


Brentford look set for the play-offs once again after a run of five draws in their last six matches in the Championship.

The latest came on Saturday as Thomas Frank's side were held to a 0-0 draw by London rivals Millwall.

The Bees had drawn four in row when sharing the points with Derby, Nottingham Forest, Huddersfield and Birmingham.

They ended that run with a 5-0 demolition of Preston two weeks ago, but had to settle for another point against Millwall.

Brentford Team News


There is no easing of Brentford's injury list with a quartet still sidelined.

Right-back Henrik Dalsgaard, left-back Rico Henry and midfielders Shandon Baptiste and Josh Dasilva are ruled out for the Bees.

Cardiff Form


Cardiff are winless in their last four matches, but have picked up points from successive draws in the last two weeks.

Having lost 1-0 at home to Nottingham Forest and 5-0 at Sheffield Wednesday, Mick McCarthy's side have steadied the ship with two stalemates.

With the play-offs are now all but out of reach, Cardiff will have been frustrated by draws with Blackburn and Reading in their last two games.

A late Blackburn equaliser earned Rovers a 2-2 draw. Reading then scored three minutes into added time to earn a 1-1 draw with Keiffer Moore having put Cardiff in front on 87 minutes.

Cardiff Team News


Full-backs Joe Bennett and Joel Bagan and forwards Lee Tomlin and Isaac Vassell remain on the injury list for Cardiff.

Captain Sean Morrison has missed the last four games, but could feature in the Cardiff squad on Tuesday.
