  • Competition: England - Championship
  • Date: Tuesday, 13rd, February 2024
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UK / 21.00 CET
  • Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich)

Seeking to bolster their playoff position, West Bromwich Albion will host the less ambitious Cardiff City at The Hawthorns on Tuesday evening in Championship action.

The West Midlands side has been experiencing a rollercoaster of form since the beginning of the new calendar year, with Saturday's league action witnessing them recording their first draw in 2024, as they squandered the lead on two occasions only to settle for a point during the dramatic 2-2 stalemate against Premier League-chasing Ipswich. Following a solid weekend display, Carlos Corberan's men remains seated in the playoff zone, maintaining a narrow two-point chusion over Sunderland in seventh, yet with a game in hand, giving them a fine opportunity to further solidify their position among the top six.

Cardiff's joy over narrowly defeating Watford 1-0 at the beginning of February, which came after three straight losses spanning the Championship and FA Cup, proved short-lived, as they extended their dismal home winless streak to five matches at the weekend with a horrific 0-2 defeat suffered at the hands of Preston. Cardiff's disappointing Saturday setback saw them slip down a notch, currently occupying the 14th place with 40 points in the bag, but they are still far from danger as they maintain a fairly healthy 11-point cushion between themselves and relegation-zone dwellers Queens Park Rangers.

West Bromwich Albion vs Cardiff City Betting Tips: WBA to Win

Given the recent on-field performances of these sides, it seems WBA has a fine opportunity to bag maximum points to further bolster their playoff spot, as they host a Cardiff side in disarray in recent weeks, succumbing to defeat on three occasions in their last four Championship outings. Obviously, defensive cardinal errors are the main causes why the Welsh club's play-off hopes have taken a hit of late, conceding an alarming 12 times in their last five league matches, while scoring just twice in the process. 

The Bluebirds' already delicate form could face further complications as they pay a visit to the West Bromwich Albion side boasting one of the strongest second-tier home records at the moment. Indeed, The Hawthorns is where the Baggies have taken a huge amount of points (33 from a total of 49), as they head into Tuesday's battle on the back of four straight home triumphs, three of which have come with clean sheets. Given the prevailing circumstances, it seems likely that Carlos Corberan's men will claim their fifth straight victory with the unwavering support of their fans, particularly as the morale within the opposing team appears to be lacking.

Ahead of the Championship mid-week contest, coach Carlos Corberan will be forced to make at least two substitutions after Kyle Bartley and Daryl Dike were taken off the pitch with injuries in the clash against Ipswich last time out.

Should the duo be unable to feature on Tuesday, they could join the long-absent attacking duo of Matt Phillips and Josh Maja, while Grady Diangana should be available against Cardiff after participating with DR Congo at the 2023 AFCON.

After a dreadful 0-2 loss to Preston at the weekend, Cardiff boss Erol Bulut will apparently be considering several changes to the starting XI, with Aaron Ramsey and Yakou Meite set to start from the first whistle on Tuesday away to WBA.

Callum O'Dowda, who has been unable to make more than four appearances through injury this season, is a guaranteed absentee for the visitors, while Ireland centre-back Mark McGuinness will be assessed after missing the weekend clash.
