Cardiff to score first

The hosts ply their trade in English second tier league (Championship) while the visitors are in 3rd tier competition (League 1). And with home support to Cardiff’s favour, especially after a long off season, the hosts should be fired up for their first EFL Cup in the new season. We are tipping Cardiff to score first in this game. In the past 5 meetings, Cardiff won 4 and drawn 1 against Portsmouth. The visitors have been struggling with inconsistencies and it is unlikely they will score first in this trip to Cardiff.

Cardiff vs Portsmouth: Match Preview

Cardiff kicked off the new season with a 1-win against relegated side, Norwich City. However, the good started was ended in the second game of the season when they fell to a 2-1 defeat away from home in Reading. Notably, Cardiff scored the first goal in both games and will look to continue the run in this first round of EFL Cup. They have never lost to Portsmouth after five meetings of 4W and 1D.

On the other hand, Portsmouth kicked off the season away from home against Sheffield Wednesday. However, poor defending saw them share the spoils in a thrilling goal fest that ended 3-3. In the second game, they drew at home when they welcomed Lincoln City at Fratton Park. But with no victory against Cardiff in five previous matchups, this fixture presents Portsmouth with the tough challenge of ending the winless run against the hosts. The visitors play their trade in League One while Cardiff is in second-tier, Championship.

Let’s see how the teams are likely to lineup for the Round 1 of EFL Cup:

Cardiff predicted lineupAllsop,Collins,Nelson, Jaden, Kipre, Rinomhota, Wintle, Ojo, Sawyers, O’Dowda and Watters.

Portsmouth predicted lineupGriffiths, Rafferty, Morrison, Ragget, Ogilvie, Reeco, Thomson, Pack, Jacobs, Pigott and Bishop.
