Cardiff City welcome Everton to South Wales on Tuesday evening for what should be an interesting Premier League clash. Neil Warnock’s Bluebirds had their two-game winning streak ended at the weekend, and in some style too, by Watford, who blasted them away 5-1 in Cardiff. Suffering such a humiliation at home may well have affected Cardiff’s morale, and it will be interesting to see how they react on Tuesday evening.
Everton have not been enjoying the best time in recent weeks, either. The Toffees have won just once in their last six league games, and are now down in 11th place in the table, with 33 points. They need to find an improvement very soon, or Marco Silva could soon find that his job as manager comes under scrutiny.

Cardiff City vs Everton Prediction: Bluebirds 1-1 Toffees

Our prediction for this game is that it will end in a low scoring draw. Neither side is in great form, and we suspect that confidence in both teams is running very low right now. Both teams have lost any sense of consistency, and are battling to find some sort of form. It could well be a very scruffy and tense encounter, low on quality and ultimately decided by errors. We suspect that both teams will struggle to find the rhythm and confidence they need to force a victory, and that both sets of fans will be frustrated by the outcome.


Our Betting Tip
Draw & BTTS
Odds
3/1

Our featured tip for this game comes from William Hill, who are offering odds of 3/1 on the game ending in a draw with both teams scoring. As we have mentioned above, we feel that both teams are lacking the confidence necessary to win this game, and both have a tendency to concede goals at the moment. We suspect that errors will play a part in this game ending in a low scoring draw. Odds of 3/1 offer decent returns for astute punters, while this bet also gives you some flexibility when it comes to the precise result of the match.

Previous matches

These two sides have played each other just three times in the Premier League era. Out of those three games, Everton have won twice and there has been one draw. The drawn game came in August 2013, in the first ever Premier League meeting between the teams, when the two sides drew 0-0 at the Cardiff city Stadium. Later that season, Everton won the match at Goodison Park 2-1.
The most recent Premier League meeting between the teams was earlier this season, in November last year at Goodison Park. The Toffees triumphed 1-0, with the game’s only goal being scored by Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Players to watch: Gylfi Sigurdsson & Sol Bamba

Icelandic international Gylfi Sigurdsson remains a key player for Marco Silva’s Everton. The Toffees have not scored in their last two Premier League games, and have only scored three in their last five. Creative players like Sigurdsson need to step up if Everton are to improve. Sigurdsson has weighed in with nine goals and three assists in his 27 Premier League appearances in 2018/19. His team need a few more of those from him right now.

Cardiff defender Sol Bamba has become something of a talisman for the Welsh club this season. He scored his team’s only goal at the weekend in the humiliating 5-1 defeat to Watford, and is an inspirational figure in defence. If Cardiff are to recover from that galling home defeat, they will need players like Bamba to really set the example and inspire those around them. Bamba offers threat in the opposition box as well as being a staunch defender.
