Best free soccer tips for Derby County vs Cardiff City
Derby County welcomed Cardiff City in the 7th round of the Championship. The match will be played on Friday 13 September at 19:45 UK at Pride Park Stadium.
Derby County began the new season in the Championship with a 2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town as Tom Lawrence scored the 2nd goal for the win. But then Phillip Cocu’s team failed to win at home to Swansea City in a 0-0 draw and Stoke City’s visit ended at 2-2. At their Pride Park Stadium they lost 2-1 to Bristol City and the unconvincing performance continued with a home game and a 1-1 draw against West Bromwich to reach the last match before the national team break which was lost by 3:0 from Brentford to Griffin Park and so Derby County has the only early-season win in the first round against Huddersfield who has not yet recorded a win and another curious fact is that Stoke City has one point and is in last place in the standings but it came precisely against Derby.
Cardiff City were also not impressed with the start of the season, finding the season lost in their visit to Wigan Athletic 3-2, but then took their match at Cardiff City Stadium 2-1 against Luton Town. Neil Warnock’s next away game was again lost this time with the classic 3-0 by Reading to make it home again which was won again and again with a score of 2:1 against Huddersfield Town. In the next two Championship games Cardiff City broke the tradition of winning at home and losing as a guest by recording 2 draws 0-0 away at Blackburn Rovers and 1-1 at home against Fulham.
Derby County are ranked 19th in the provisional standings with only 6 points, and given that the team finished in 6th position last season and playing playoffs to enter the Premier League, the situation is more than alarming. However, we should not forget that after the end of last season, Frank Lampard left the managerial position to take over Chelsea.
Cardiff City are returning to the Championship after falling out of the Premier League last season and expectations for the squad are high but they do not justify them so far. The team has only 1 point scored as a guest and I expect their difficulties away from home to continue and in the upcoming clash Derby to record a victory in front of their fans after the nightmare month of August and away from the bottom of the standings.
