Cardiff City v Manchester City Preview, Premiership, Sunday 25th August 2013

Cardiff City are in search of their first win in the Premiership, but can the newly promoted side get that from last years runners up Man City. With losing 2 – 0 to West Ham in their first game with goals from Joe Cole and Kevin Nolan the Cardiff boss Malky Mackay is not too disheartened just yet with the season only just getting underway but it would certainly boost the Welsh sides confidence if they do manage to win against a team who have one player worth more than the whole Cardiff team.

Manchester City kicked off their campaign is style with a convincing 4 – 0 win over Newcastle United, and there must of been early nerves by the new City boss Manuel Pellegrini after Manchester Uniteds demolition of Swansea set the stakes for their closest rivals to follow suit. Pellegrini’s side came out strong against Newcastle and it didn’t take the Manchester club long before they broke down the Newcastle defense for a David Silva headed goal and I am sure the manager will be looking to capitalize on that start come Sunday when these two sides meet.

Cardiff City v Manchester City Team News

Cardiff City News:

A lot of pressure is on the clubs strikers this year as it will be the amount of goals Cardiff City can score that will insure the clubs safety in staying in this league, and although we know Craig Bellamy can score as well as others the questions still remain just how many. With last years top scorer Heidar Helguson only scoring 8 they can’t even rely on him scoring any this year as he has sadly retired at the age of 35.

Manchester City Team News:

Manchester City may have won last Monday but they will be sorry to see club captain and influential defender Vincent Company limp off with a groin injury which doesn’t help as Micah Richards is also injured with a bad hamstring from training 10 days ago. With Edin Dzeko’s man of the match performance against Newcastle United this week you can be sure to see the 27 year old striker start again come Sunday.

Who Has The Advantage?

These two teams haven’t played each other since the sixties and back then Manchester City have the slight advantage in results. But this time round things are slightly different with the Manchester club one of England’s top teams and Cardiff City have recently been promoted last year.

Average Goals Per Game?

Fifty years ago these two sides met and back then the last 5 games between the two sides see twenty goals fly into the net, which gives us an average of 4 goals per game, and with Man City’s strike force you could be quiet confident of that goal count once again come Sunday.

Cardiff City v Manchester City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

I have to admit I don’t see any goals in Cardiff City when it comes up against facing the strongest defense in the league, but I do see plenty of goals in the Manchester side so I am going for a Manchester City 3 – 0 win and another with Edin Dzeko scoring a brace to make up for last week.
