*READ ON FOR OUR HOT PREVIEW AND PREDICTION*
This won’t be an easy game though against an Ipswich side which performed well in the East Anglian derby on Sunday and came within seconds of claiming a long-awaited win over bitter rivals Norwich. The Tractor Boys have only lost 1 of their last 6 and although they look like they have too much to do in terms of getting back into play-off contention, they are performing as well as they have done since the early days of the season.
Ipswich haven’t conceded more than once in any of their last seven matches in all competitions, all of which produced under 2.5 goals in total. They have kept clean sheets in 3 of their last 6 league games, so Cardiff will have to work hard for any openings here.
The Bluebirds haven’t been quite as convincing on their travels at they have been at home. They’ve only managed 1.19 goals per game away, compared to a very respectable 1.50 overall in the Championship but with the league’s third best defensive record, they will fancy they can keep Ipswich’s opportunities to a minimum.
Since New Year’s Day, Cardiff have conceded just two goals in six league games so we are dealing with two confident defences here and it seems highly likely that defence will triumph over attack in this one, which makes backing Under 2.5 Goals look like the most attractive bet.
Cardiff are unbeaten in 5 games against Ipswich. The last two meetings at Portman Road have ended in draws (1-1 and 0-0).
62% of Ipswich home league games this term have seen under 2.5 goals scored.
56% of Cardiff away matches in the Championship have done likewise.
