Betting prediction for Manchester United vs Cardiff

Manchester United hosts Cardiff in a match from the Premier League, which hardly anyone in the beginning of the season expected to be so crucial for the “Red Devils”. United are in the worst series of several decades and are already eliminated from both cups in England, with their chances to get involved in the fight for the title are near to the zero. The only race in which Manchester United still have any chance to win something this year is the Champions League, but hardly anyone including David Moyes have any illusions that in the current form of the team those chances are real.

However, in the next three rounds in the Premier league United has a relatively light program. They will play with Cardiff and Fulham at home and will visit Stoke City. These nine possible points will stabilize the situation in the team and will return part of the confidence in the players that they are among the best in England.

However, are they capable of making three wins in a row? Hardly anyone will say the answer of that question. A curious fact is that the managers of these three teams with which United have to play in the next three rounds are on one or another way connected with the club from Manchester. The first of them Ole Gunnar Solskjær made a great career at Old Trafford and is a legend for the club at least because of his goal against Bayern in the final of the Champions League in 1999.

He made a great career as a coach in Norway and his appointment in a team from Premier League was no surprise to anyone. However, it should be emphasized that we can’t see any significant difference in Cardiff after his arrival as they conceded two loses in two matches under his leadership in the Premier League. However, Cardiff made two wins against Newcastle and Bolton in the FA Cup.

Will they be able to take something from Old Trafford? Hardly, but they for sure will not give up without a fight. The absence of the injured Wayne Rooney and Van Persie makes their task even easier. It is not yet clear whether the latest addition to the club from Manchester, Juan Mata will start the match.
