Cardiff – Statistics & Current Form
Neil Warnock’s team is currently in 17th place. So the newcomer from Wales is currently well on the way to keeping the class. Anything but the whereabouts in the highest English league was not predicted before the season. The Premier League returnees have collected 25 points so far and presented themselves as especially competitive at home in Cardiff City Stadium. 17 of the 25 points were collected at home. The goal difference at home with -12 is still clearly negative, but in high defeats against Manchester City and Manchester United, this is quite understandable. Nevertheless, five of the previous eleven home games were won.
In the face of these numbers is Cardiff vs Everton a tip on a home win a good option. The role of outsider is clearly recognizable, which calls bets in the double chance of the plan. Everton is the team with the third highest draw in the Premier League. At Cardiff vs Everton, other bets are hard to find. There are no significant rashes in the “Both teams to score“ and “Over / Under” sectors. For this reason, the game is in the foreground. Defensive coach Neil Warnock was able to stabilize the team a bit (with the exception of the last game day, 1: 5 against Watford), offensive, however, Cardiff showed not the best recently. This, too, is one of the reasons why at Cardiff vs. Everton a tip should be secured with a draw. The game against the third division Gillingham (0: 1 defeat) proves that a certain degree of weakness is certainly present. Most recently, however, and this gives hope, the Bluebirds scored six goals in four competitive games and also scored in each and every match.
With Lee Peltier falls only a reasonably important right-back at Cardiff. The Englishman, hired by relegated rival Huddersfield in 2014/15, has played ten competitive matches and 642 minutes this season. With him on the pitch Cardiff was able to win the last two games. He missed Watford (1: 5 for Watford).
Expected formation of Cardiff:
Etheridge – Ecuele, Morrison, Bamba – Bacuna, Arter, Ralls, Bennett – Paterson, Niasse, Murphy

Everton – Statistics & Current Form
The local rivals of Liverpool FC has gone through recent poor results in no good starting position in the fight for the international places. Nevertheless, it is still possible to dream of Europe. However, according to our forecast, the duel between Cardiff and Everton puts a lot of pressure on the shoulders of the guests. Because it would have come together a lot, that this dream will be fulfilled in the next season. Following a 2-0 defeat by Manchester City and a 1-0 win over Watford (a major competitor), the gap to seventh place is now seven points. A point loss or even a defeat by Cardiff could leave the dream of returning to Europe a long way off.
In addition, Everton presented in recent weeks by no means from his best side. Since the bitter last-minute defeat in the Merseyside derby against Liverpool on 2 December, Everton has won just three out of 13 league games (four out of 15, including the FA Cup duels). Negative highlight of the last weeks was the end in the FA Cup against a representative of the Championship Millwall. With such a series a qualification for the European competition is certainly not possible. If the turnaround does not happen as soon as possible, the Toffees can tick this time off. The away balance also gives little reason for hope. Four of the last five encounters in the distance were lost. If Everton loses on Tuesday, the management can slowly but surely plan the new season without revenue from the European pots. In the game between Cardiff and Everton a tip on the guest delivers despite all odds of only about 2.25.
Also the chair of Marco da Silva wobbles properly. This aspect also gives this duel a considerable amount of explosiveness. On Tuesday evening, the head coach of the Everton FC is once again the focus. But whether a dismissal actually brings the long-sighted turn, remains questionable. After all, it was he who consolidated Everton for a long time in the upper regions of the table over the course of the season. Since Silva has to give up his main center-back Kurt Zouma (yellow-locked), which certainly does not make things easier for the Toffees.
Expected lineup of Everton:
Pickford – Kenny, Keane, Galloway, Digne – Gueye, Gomes – Richarlison, Davies, Sigurdsson – Tosun
Last Games by Everton:
- 09.02.2019 – Watford Vs. Everton 1-0 (Premier League)
- 06.02.2019 – Everton Vs. Manchester City 0: 2 (Premier League)
- 02.02.2019 – Everton Vs. Wolverhampton 1: 3 (Premier League)
- 29.01.2019 – Huddersfield Town Vs. Everton 0: 1 (Premier League)
- 26.01.2019 – FC Millwall vs. Everton 3: 2 (FA Cup)
