Cardiff City play host to Swansea City in the South Wales derby knowing that victory could move them further clear of the Championship relegation zone. While the Bluebirds currently occupy 21st spot in the standings, Swansea are now in 16th position after ending their poor form before the international break.
The Cardiff City hierarchy have taken chances with their managerial choices over the past 18 or so months, failing to find someone who has convinced them to keep patience in the long term. However, in Sabri Lamouchi, they appear to have a man who is getting the best out of their playing squad, Cardiff having collected 10 points from their last six matches.
With just five points coming from their previous 12 fixtures, it has been a remarkable upturn in fortunes, yet Lamouchi knows that plenty of work remains if Cardiff are to stay as a second-tier club. The gap to Huddersfield Town, who will now seemingly avoid a points deduction, is just three points, and it heaps the pressure on matches such as the one on Saturday.
It’s a clash between two lowly ranked teams, but derbies are often entertaining affairs. Swansea have got the better of Cardiff recently, but expect this one to end in a draw, as both sides are struggling at the moment
Prediction: Cardiff City 1-1 Swansea City
This match will start from 7:30 PM
This match will take place on 1 April 2023
Lamouchi must decide to start with the same Cardiff side which were winning at Rotherham United before the match was abandoned due to a waterlogged pitch. However, Kion Etete sustained an injury during that fixture and will continue to be assessed, with Sheyi Ojo and Mark Harris both alternatives to the forward.
As for Swansea, Martin could stick with the diamond formation which proved effective against Bristol City last time out. That would leave a number of wide players among the substitutes, while Oliver Cooper would have to stay patient having made his Wales debut during the international break.
both teams want to win the game, although Cardiff C seems to be in favor of the odds with a 38.2% chance. Swansea City, with a probability of 32%, is less likely to leave the match as the winner.
