We extend a warm welcome to the return of domestic football following a break in the action for the Euro 2020 qualifiers and are now looking forward to getting into the thick of the action with major divisions boosted by Champions League and Europa League football between now and December. Here are our top Derby v Cardiff betting tips & predictions.
A Closer Look
Derby welcomes Cardiff to town on Friday night for a Championship match that will be shown live on Sky Sports from 7.45pm. One well worth watching as both sides will fancy their chances at bagging the points here and it appears schedulers have picked out an exciting match.
Derby County fans planned for a big season spent chasing promotion, but their club has managed just one win from six attempts so far and that spare came on the opening weekend of the campaign. Their form since reads three draws and a couple of defeats. They were beaten last time out but will have the benefit of a break in play that has allowed them to regroup and discuss just what has gone wrong so far.
A Tough Call
Cardiff’s form shows an even split of two wins, two draws and a couple of defeats but they make this trip in the back of a three-game unbeaten run, following a win with back-to-back draws to edge their way up into midtable. A maximum here would propel the Welsh side towards the prize places. They are 15/8 best price with Bet365 and that’s worth having.
Derby is home favourites when carrying a 6/4 price tag with Unibet, the draw yours at 23/10 with the same online bookmaker. We’ll go with the form side and take our chances on the away win at what appears to be a value price
