West Brom vs Cardiff Match Prediction (05-10-2019 10:00)

Our Prediction:

West Brom

Will win



They were limited to hitting the target only three times across 24 shots on goal. A 2-1 victory at Luton has slightly eased concerns for the Baggies, but the hosts arent doing enough to dominate games going forward. While they continue to control possession and look good for the points, they arent clinical enough to rack up a high scoring win or solid enough for a 1-0. Thats an issue as they prepare to face Reading a side who are coming off a massive victory which has boosted their hopes for the campaign.

Were therefore predicting a very competitive game with a 1-0 win for West Bromwich Albion at the end of the match. A close call.

Cardiff vs Luton Betting Tips

There are even more calls for concern when you look at Reading, who just hit three goals against Cardiff on Sunday. However, Puscas needs to inspire Reading to a better away record if hes going to make a major impact. The visitors have failed to win in six Championship games on the road, losing 10 and winning just two of their 23 trips last season. George Puscas hit a brace to fire the Royals to that victory, while he could be vital in lifting the club away from the drop zone this term.

On the bright side, Reading are at least scoring on their travels. Their 2-1 loss at Hull City was the fifth consecutive away league game in which theyve found the net. They have scored five times across their first three games of the season, while they scored away to six of the top eight in the Championship last term. Now the visitors look improved going forward, so they should be a threat here.

The hosts seem to have built up their side well this season. Theyve added quality in the middle of the park, brought through young players and replaced any major departures in the side. With seven points on the board, its not quite doom and gloom, but the Baggies should be concerned about their defence. After their fifth-place finish, last term the mood should be high, especially given Slaven Bilic has taken the reins. After four games without a clean sheet, theyre starting to look too open. However, their performances arent quite clicking yet.

Theyve thus ended a two-match winless streak and now want points to keep track of the top of the table. West Brom host Reading for their Matchday 4 clash on Wednesday looking to build on a narrow 1-2 win at Luton Town, where Grady Diangana netted a brace early in the second half to complete a comeback enough for all three points.

Your View?

But since they won the last match 3-0 against Cardiff they are eager to continue their winning streak. Currently, they are in 17th place with 2 losses and 1 win. In their last 5 matches, we saw 19 goals so we can expect lots of them on this occasion as well. Summer signing George Puscas will be their key player for the new season, but he will have a hard job to do against The Baggies. On the other hand, Reading or The Royals as they call them in England is not in such a good form as the hosts.
