Prediction: Blackpool vs Cardiff City – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Cardiff city will try to pick up where they left off at the end of last season when they make the trip to Blackpool Saturday afternoon.

Both sides started their 2021-22 championship campaigns with a 1-1 draw last weekend, with Cardiff held by Barnsley and Blackpool taking a late point at Bristol City.


Prediction for this match

Mick McCarthy‘s team missed their playoff target last season, despite the fact that that had little to do with their away form.

The Bluebirds won six, tied five and lost just one of their last twelve games outside of South Wales in the 2020/21 season en route to eighth place.

This time around, the goal will be to finish at least two places higher, despite the fact that City started their campaign with a rather disappointing home game against Barnsley.

Marlon package Headed Cardiff into the lead nine minutes into the second half after both teams had previously ruled out a goal, just for Toby Sibbick to earn the Tykes a point.

McCarthy’s men, however, managed to hit the bull’s eye with their first midweek win thanks to a 3-2 win over Sutton United in the first round of the EFL Cup.

Blackpool was the more emphatic winner of their midweek cup game, beating Middlesbrough 3-0 at home.

The Tangerines are back on Bloomfield Road on Saturday and want to build on a solid start to the campaign, which includes the aforementioned draw at Ashton Gate.

Debutant Shayne Lavery struck in stoppage time to cancel Chris Martin‘s opener in the first half, which is a well-deserved point for Blackpool in their first game back in the championship.

Neil CritchleyThe side have a good record against closest opponents Cardiff, losing only two of their last 24 home games in the league to the Bluebirds, most recently in 2012-13.

Blackpool have won their first home game of the season in four of their last five seasons so the stats are certainly in their favor.

The big selection decision McCarthy has to make is whether to pick the star forward Kieffer Moore in the starting line-up after his engagement with Wales at Euro 2020.

Moore returned to practice late and was only fit enough to make a cameo against Barnsley, despite having 86 minutes under his belt against Sutton mid-week.

Should it not be considered ready to start, James Collins will have the lead as he looks to build on a solid start to life in South Wales in terms of pre-season form.

Marley Watkins is another in the running for a spot after scoring twice a week in his competitive debut while Will Vaulks is back from suspension for this showdown.

As for Blackpool, Lavery scored two goals in two games with his side’s second goal against Middlesbrough, certainly doing enough to secure a spot here.

Critchley have made seven changes for this cup game and are expected to revert to something similar to the team that started out against Bristol City last week.

Lavery’s likely inclusion from the first whistle could mean that Tyreece John-Jules Make way while Josh Bowler is another push for a recall.

Blackpool possible starting line-up:
Maxwell; Connolly, Keogh, husband, Garbutt; Hamilton, James, Ward, Anderson; Lavery, Yates

Cardiff City possible starting line-up:
Phillips; Morrison, Flint, Nelson; Ng, Vaulks, Pack, Bagan; Watkins, Collins, Giles


SM words green background

Probability: Blackpool 1-1 Cardiff City

Both sides will strive to have their first league win on the board for the second time this weekend.

Cardiff doesn’t have the best records on Bloomfield Road, where Blackpool has been unbeaten for five years, and we can see they get away with disappointment on this final foray to the sea.
