Cardiff City v Manchester United betting tips – Bluebirds a big price for victory

Posted on: 19th December 2018

There’s a fascinating spectacle in store on Saturday teatime considering that Manchester United head to the Cardiff City Stadium without Jose Mourinho in charge.

The United board decided that enough was enough after a miserable 3-1 defeat at Anfield on Sunday and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will now take temporary charge of the team until the end of the season.

In an interesting sub-plot, the Norwegian briefly managed Cardiff City three seasons ago but couldn’t keep them in the Premier League, with supporters likely to give him a mixed reception.

For Neil Warnock, it must have been fascinating to watch events unfolding and calculating how his team can profit from the disarray that might have occurred.

He will know that the Manchester United players might feel as though they can play with more freedom now that Mourinho has left, although it’s also clear that this team have been well below their potential this season.


Cardiff have been quietly building up a head of steam at home in the past few weeks and are certainly within a chance of getting something from this particular match.

The Bluebirds work very hard for each other and have a cauldron atmosphere at the Cardiff City Stadium, with United sure to be showing several changes from the team that lost against Liverpool.

It will be all about standing up to the physical challenge of Cardiff and we’re happy to get with the home side on the Asian Handicap considering that Solskjaer is not a miracle worker and could simply be a puppet to take charge.
