Cardiff vs Swansea Betting Tips, Predictions & Odds - Honours even in Welsh derby in the Championship

  • The Championship clash kicks off at 12.30pm GMT
  • Cardiff and Swansea have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 meetings

Bitter rivals Cardiff and Swansea clash in the EFL Championship at Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday. Cardiff are on a four-game winning run, but can they can continue against a Swansea side that are unbeaten in the last three derbies?

Cardiff Form


Cardiff have hit a rich vein of form with four successive wins moving the Bluebirds up to ninth place in the Championship.

The run started with a 4-0 demolition of Luton at home, and it was swiftly followed by a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield in Cardiff. Kiefer Moore scored three times in the two wins.

Moore also got the winner in a 1-0 victory at Watford last weekend. It was Sean Morrison who was the hero at Stoke on Tuesday as he sealed a 2-1 victory having earlier put through his own net. 

Cardiff Team News


Robert Gletzel scored against Stoke after coming on from the bench, but he may be forced for another bit-part role with Neil Harris likely to name an unchanged side.

Full-back Jordi Osei-Tutu and forward Lee Tomlin remain on the sidelines with injuries.

Swansea Form


Swansea have lost one of their last six games in the Championship, a run that leaves Steve Cooper's side sat in fourth spot heading into the derby. 

The Swans are four points off top spot and four points above rivals Cardiff in a congested top half of the table.

In the last three weeks, Swansea have beaten Rotherham (1-0) and Luton (2-0) at home and Nottingham Forest (1-0) away. 

They lost at Middlesbrough (2-1) and have drawn twice at home against Sheffield Wednesday (1-1) and Bournemouth in a 0-0 stalemate on Tuesday.

Swansea Team News


Swansea should welcome back on-loan defender Marc Guehi after a head injury, but his centre-back partner Ryan Bennett is set to remain out.

Midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White is out for the rest of the month, but fellow playmaker George Byers is on the road to a return to action. 

Cardiff vs Swansea Head to Head


Swansea have enjoyed the bragging rights in 5 of the last 12 heads to heads against Cardiff. The Bluebirds have won three times with four draws since 1999. 

Last season, Swansea were 1-0 winners at home thanks to Ben Wilmot's goal before the rivals played out a 0-0 in Cardiff.

Cardiff vs Swansea Betting Odds


Cardiff have been installed as small favourites following their winning run. Neil Harris' side are 2.40 with bet365 to make five in a row. Swansea are 2.87 to collect all three points with a draw available at 3.30.
