Sheffield United to Win

Sheffield United were beaten 2-0 at title favourites Burnley last time out, though the Blades had won four fixtures on the spin in league and cup before that, and they should be able to find their feet quickly against relegation-threatened Cardiff on Saturday. The visitors have lost five of their last seven assignments on the road and they should struggle again at Bramall Lane. With that in mind, our opening Sheffield Utd vs Cardiff prediction forecasts a home win.

Both Teams to Score – No

Paul Heckingbottom’s Sheffield United have the Championship’s second-meanest defensive record this term and only a handful of clubs can top their haul of 17 clean sheets in the second tier since August. Cardiff meanwhile, have failed to score in six of their last eight games on the road and their lack of cutting edge could hold them back in the Steel City again. A stake on both teams not to score is advised here.
