Best Tip: Southampton to win

We could well see a packed Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday afternoon but, unfortunately, we predict most of those in attendance will be coming away disappointed. The stats below, including head-to-head (H2H) records and recent form, are all pointing towards an away win in the win / draw / win market, with visitors Southampton getting the better of hosts Cardiff. It could be a bruising afternoon for home manager Erol Bulut but, in the meantime, we'd strongly recommend making the most of best bookie odds of 1.53 to back the away win.
