Cardiff City Preview
The Welsh team was in a bit of crisis, but they got over it this Saturday after defeating Sunderland on road, 1-2. Cardiff had three games in a row, in which they haven’t won, 2 draws and loss, and during that period, they slipped from the first place. In the previous 6 games, they allowed at least one goal in each match, and 5 ended with both teams to score. The bad thing is the fact that Cardiff conceded an opening goal in the prior 5 straight games. When playing at home, the Bluebirds haven’t lost, and after 3 wins, they recorded one draw against Sheffield Wednesday 1-1.
Leeds United Preview
Thomas Christiansen improved the performances of the Peacocks significantly. The Spanish manager made one of the best scoring machines in the league. Currently, the club from Elland Road is the best offense in the Championship, but also the second-best defense. 6 times in the past 10 games, Leeds kept clean sheets and on the other hand, scored at least two goals in 7 events. Following 4 wins in a row, they suffered a defeat against Millwall, 1-0. Leeds quickly recovered from it after winning in the league and the Carabao Cup.
Pierre-Michel Lasogga arrived just two weeks ago, but the most expensive player in the history of Leeds already started to pay off. In 4 games, the German striker netted 3 times becoming the perfect replacement for Chris Wood.

Cardiff City vs Leeds United Prediction and Betting Tips
We would suggest playing on goals in this game. Although we believe that Leeds is closer to victory, judging on the recent form, both teams to score is going to be our first suggestion. Both sides have very efficient attacks, and there is a good probability that we might see high-scoring affair here.
For the second one, over 2.5 goals. Cardiff and Leeds like to play offensive and to impose their own tempo, and that guarantees goals.
