Cardiff City vs Watford Prediction

Watford were heavily-tipped for an immediate return to the top-flight but they have so far failed to live up to expectations. A major cause for concern for Slaven Bilic's side has been their poor record on their travels and they need to start getting results on the road to avoid falling further off the pace.

A positive impact off the bench. 👏Samuel Kalu's surging run in the build-up to our winning goal at Wigan was your @manscaped Moment of the Match! ⚡️

Cardiff City have blown hot and cold throughout the campaign but have shown a propensity for unexpected wins.

We are backing Watford to claim a narrow win, with goals to be scored at both ends.

Prediction: Cardiff City 1-2 Watford
