Cardiff are playing at home against Watford in a match of round 27 of the English Premier League. Both sides are in fantastic form, and it’s not a surprise that the bookmakers give similar odds for the final result.
The victory of Cardiff against Southampton allowed them to overcome The Saints in the standings and to come out of the relegation zone. This win was just the second for The Bluebirds as guests and number seven for the season, tieing their last record in which they had seven victories in the Premier League in season 2003/04. At the same time, Watford won with 1-0 against Everton and ended their run of three fixtures without success in the league. The Hornets are on the eight place in the standings, but at least this moment they are far from the positions that give right to play in the European tournaments next season.
In recent weeks Watford improved their performance as guests and recorded some good results, losing only against Tottenham in six away fixtures. However, on Friday we will trust Cardiff. The players of the Welsh team are in a good mood after the success versus Southampton, and if we exclude the expected defeats against Tottenham and Manchester United, The Bluebirds are playing stable at home and chase the victory until the last minutes of their games. The Hornets are shaky in the fixtures versus teams that are playing aggressively and physically.
