Neil Warnock Cardiff City 2018-19
Our tipster is anticipating late drama when Marco Silva's side make the trip to the Welsh capital to face Neil Warnock's charges on Tuesday night

Cardiff City were crushed by Watford on Friday night. The Bluebirds were hammered 5-1 by the Hornets - a bitter blow in their battle to beat the drop.

Neil Warnock will hope for a big reaction from his side when Everton visit the Welsh capital on Tuesday.

The Toffees, too, have been out of sorts. Marco Silva's side have lost five of their last six matches. Furthermore, Everton have won just three times away from Goodison Park this season.

Latest odds

Cardiff can be backed at 51/20 (2.55) with SportPesa to ease their relegation fears with a vital victory.

The Toffees are a 23/20 (2.15) chance to increase the pressure on Warnock's men by winning on Welsh soil. SportPesa go 47/20 (3.35) that this tussle ends in stalemate.

Team news

Oumar Niasse, on loan at Cardiff from Everton, is ineligible to face the Toffees. Victor Camarasa misses out through injury.

Kenneth Zohore will be hoping to be given an opportunity to shine from the start. The Danish striker scored the winner for the Bluebirds against Southampton earlier this month, but he hasn't started a match since September.

Yerry Mina, Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka are sidelined for the visitors through injury while Kurt Zouma is suspended.

Hope for the hosts?

Everton have failed to find the net in four of their last six Premier League defeats. Cardiff have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four victories in this competition.

SportPesa offer 29/10 (3.90) that the Bluebirds shut the Toffees out. The same firm go 9/2 (5.50) that Cardiff win without conceding in Wales.

Defensive deficiencies

The Bluebirds, however, have conceded 11 goals in their last five fixtures. Furthermore, Everton have kept just one clean sheet in their last six matches.

SportPesa's 20/23 (1.87) quote for both teams to score, then, could prove popular. The same firm go 21/20 (2.05) that there are at least three goals scored on this occasion.

Prediction

Better value, though, could lie in anticipating late drama in this Premier League clash. No fewer than 14 of the last 16 goals scored in matches involving Cardiff have come in the second half.

The even money (2.0) quote, therefore, for most of the scoring to come after the break could represent excellent value for punters.
