Cardiff City-Aston Villa Betting Preview: Visitors value to get amongst the goals in Tuesday's tussle

Paul Lambert's men were beaten on home turf at the weekend but our tipster is backing the Villans to net at least twice when they travel to Wales
Cardiff City suffered derby-day disappointment as they slumped to a 3-0 defeat against Swansea City on Saturday evening, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will be aiming to bounce back when they play host to Aston Villa on Tuesday night.

With just six points separating the bottom eight clubs in the English top flight, the battle to beat the drop is exceptionally tight and both of these sides will be desperate to enjoy a morale-boosting victory when they go head-to-head in the Welsh capital.

The Bluebirds have done most of their good work on home soil this term, picking up 15 of their 21 Premier League points in Cardiff and Solsjkaer’s men can be backed at 6/4 (2.50) with bet365 to add another three points to that tally by seeing off Villa on Tuesday.

Paul Lambert’s men also suffered a setback at the weekend, as they fell to a 2-0 home reverse against West Ham United.

The Villans have won just two of their last 12 matches in all competitions but can be backed at 2/1 (3.0) with bet365 to collect maximum points from Tuesday’s tussle, while the same firm go 12/5 (3.40) that the match ends in stalemate.

It is worth noting that only Norwich City have managed fewer home goals than the Bluebirds this season, while Villa, along with rivals West Bromwich Albion, have scored the most goals on the road of any side in the bottom half of the table.

Paul Lambert’s men have found the net in six of their last seven matches away from home and are more than capable of troubling a Cardiff side with the second-worst defensive record in the top flight.

With that in mind, the 7/4 (2.75) quote from bet365 for Paul Lambert’s men to score two or more goals is excellent value, with the Bluebirds shorn of confidence following Saturday’s derby drubbing at Swansea.

Villa are good value at 2/1 (3.0) with bet365 to claim a vital victory from their trip to Cardiff but it is the 7/4 (2.75) quote from the same firm for Paul Lambert’s men to net at least twice that is the recommended play for punters here.
