The wheels have massively fallen off Cardiff’s wagon in recent weeks, with Neil Warnock’s charges being outscored by nine goals to three on the way to suffering four consecutive league defeats, yet they will go second with a win here.

Our KickOff predictive algorithm sees that as incentive enough, giving the Bluebirds a 52% chance of securing the victory against a Sunderland side who remain on course for back-to-back relegations from their position at the bottom of the Championship table.

Last season’s score

Perhaps the most interesting thing about meetings between these two clubs in recent times has been the lack of draws (25% chance), with just one in their previous eight clashes, though this was the venue for that 2-2 game back in December 2013.

If things were to finish level, then 1-1 (12% chance) would be the scoreline suggested by our KickOff predictive algorithm, but 1-0 (12% chance), 2-0 (10% chance) and 2-1 (10% chance) are also amongst the leading candidates.

Top betting tips and predictions

Chris Coleman’s men have not exactly been exciting to watch of late, with six of their last eight matches in the league serving up under 2.5 goals (52% chance), so anyone expecting a thriller is set to be disappointed.

Omar Bogle (27% chance) and Kenneth Zohore (24% chance) are battling it out for a place in the Cardiff team and either man is capable of breaking the deadlock here, though six-goal Joe Ralls (12% chance) should also be a contender.
