Manchester United will take on Cardiff City in their next league game at Cardiff City Stadium this Sunday. It will be the first game for both the teams after the international break and both of them would like to return to action with a bang.
After showing some rustiness in their first few matches in the ongoing season, United has bounced back pretty well and they are well and truly in contention now for the league title. Out of their last 5 league games, they have secured 13 points with the help of 4 wins and a draw.
The Red Devils will be full of confidence going into this game as in their previous game; they had got better of the current league table toppers Arsenal. Yes, they are struggling with a few injury problems at the moment, but, they would not be too much bothered about that as they have got quality backups.
As far as Cardiff City is concerned, they had surprised everybody by beating Manchester City in their second league game this season. After that game, the expectations with them had gone high, but, they couldn’t quite put up the same kind of performance again. In their last 5 league games, their performance has been way below par. They have just managed to secure 3 points out of them.
If the bluebirds suffer a defeat in this game, they might find themselves in bottom 3. They are currently three positions away from the relegation zone as they are at no. 14 in the points table with 12 points in 11 games, but, one result against them can change the picture significantly.
If we compare the quality and the current form of the two sides, Cardiff doesn’t seem to have any chance against United. So, if you are a betting man, you should avoid putting your money on the bluebirds.
