The starting position for Cardiff City (18th place, 31 points) before the last home game on Saturday night against Crystal Palace (12th, 43 points) is easy. With every result other than a win Cardiff descends. In a defeat against the Eagles the downgrading to the Championship on Saturday was decided thing.
But even in a win Cardiff could descend this weekend, should be on Sunday after Brighton three points surprisingly at Arsenal. A draw also brings the Bluebirds due to the 24 goals worse goal difference to Brighton also nothing. Should the Welshman relegate, according to odds of bookmakers against Cardiff against Crystal Palace, the Bluebirds would be the first Premier League team in history to experience an immediate re-emergence for the second time (previously in 2014 under today’s Man United Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer).
Cardiff vs Crystal Palace Football Betting Tips
Between Cardiff and Crystal Palace, our prediction suggests a tip for the Eagles (X2), who scored more away from home this season than at home. Should Cardiff drop at the weekend, it would be for coach Neil Warnock already the third Erstliga descent of his long coaching career and this each with a different club. Previously, this fate befell him already with Notts County (1991/92) and Sheffield United (2006/07), which are established since last weekend together with Norwich City as promoted to the Premier League. After all, Haggard Warnock – a child of the Blades – could look forward to it. With Warnock and Roy Hodgson meet on Saturday also the fourth oldest and the oldest coach of the Premier League history each other.
Cardiff – Statistics & Current Form
The perhaps final of the many last chances left Cardiff City in London last weekend unused. Against the fixed for weeks as relegated Fulham the Bluebirds lost 0: 1, which it is more than likely that Cardiff will follow the Cottagers directly back into the championship. Four points is the gap to Brighton & Hove Albion, who also have the much better goal difference. Even with a victory on Saturday night against Palace, the Bluebirds would go on a relegation place in the final game day, where an away trip to Old Trafford to Manchester United on the program. The bookmakers see at Cardiff Vs. Crystal Palace according to the odds an away win as likely. The appearance last week in Fulham was so disappointing and did not look like a team would fight backwards and forwards. The Bluebirds gave eight shots on the housing of Cottagers goalkeeper Rico, but all only after the 73rd minute when Cardiff fell 0-1 in the behind.
Warnock thus never won a Premier League game in London in 16 attempts (0-3-13). For this he celebrated since his first season in the Football League in 1987 as a coach across all competitions 13 wins against Crystal Palace (in 25 duels). Only Preston and Wolverhampton defeated the 70-year-old more frequently. Cardiff is in their last home game of the season with eight defeats from the recent ten Premier League games. The two successes were against West Ham and Brighton. Home lost in that season only Huddersfield Town (14 bankruptcies) more often than the Bluebirds (ten defeats). Paired with the extremely outward-looking Eagles, we tend to make the cross between Cardiff and Crystal Palace on the betting slip, according to our “Double Chance” prediction. Sol Bamba, Callum Paterson and Joe Ralls have injured three top performers.

Crystal Palace – Statistics & Current Form
The season of Crystal Palace could have been great if the damned ice cream was not. In this season, only bottoming Huddersfield Town scored fewer home points (eight) and more often stayed home without a goal (nine times) than the Eagles (17 points, eight times without their own goal). But it works out the better. Since the turn of the year, Premier League holders and current leaders Manchester City (21) have scored the most away from home. Behind it, however, follows Crystal Palace with 16 points. The Eagles have won four out of the last five games away, losing only to Tottenham in that period. A reason for us to tip Cardiff – Crystal Palace for more away points (double chance) for the Eagles. Wilfried Zaha & Co. have not conceded (3-1-0) in their last four outings against promoted players (which is Cardiff’s second round two rounds before the end of the season), winning 2-0 each of their last pairing matches.
Speaking of Zaha, the Ivorian international, who is said to have made another move to an absolute top address this summer, scored five goals in his latest six Premier League away games. Overall, Zaha scored eight of his nine league goals this season in opposing stadiums. In the away table, Crystal Palace is sixth with 26 points. Only the current top 4 teams plus Manchester United have scored more frequently abroad than the Eagles, who thus imported 60 percent of all counters abroad (highest value). So at Cardiff vs Crystal Palace our prediction goes with the odds of bookmaker accord. We also see in the Eagles on Saturday the slight favorite on three counters. The central defense for Mamadou Sakho and James Tomkins is missing, as is Jeffrey Schlupp.
