Cardiff City v Newcastle United betting tips – Magpies set for win in Wales

Posted on: 12th August 2018

Neil Warnock claimed that his Cardiff City team have little to fear after losing 2-0 at Bournemouth although there weren’t many sides against whom the Cherries enjoyed such a straightforward win.

“We grew as the game wore on and had a good spell in the second half” said Warnock after the game. “We had one or two opportunities and if things had gone for us, I think we could have punished them a bit more.

“We haven’t got to fear anything really. Little bit more clinical, little bit more quality in certain areas, I think we could have tested them a lot more, but that’s to be worked on really.

“I thought we grew into it in the second half and, if Morrison’s a little bit more agile, that would have been a good equaliser and it would have been interesting for the rest of the game.

“It wasn’t to be. I thought they were a little bit more clinical than us, but overall I’ve got to be pleased with that.

“I thought we went right until the end and I’m disappointed one or two things didn’t go for us.”

Even so, it might take a while for Cardiff to find their sea legs as they are now operating at a higher level and they meet a Newcastle team who acquitted themselves pretty well against Tottenham last week.

There were a flurry of early goals which left the Magpies trailing 2-1, although they had several more scoring chances in the game, with Salomon Rondon hitting the crossbar and Kenedy taking a bad first touch when through on goal.

Rafael Benitez steered his team to a top-half finish last season and United look a decent price to get over the line in this clash, with the Bluebirds lacking firepower after a summer of modest spending.
