This match will be broadcoasted live on BeinSports HD 2
|After two back-to-back Premier League (PL) wins, Cardiff were dealt a major blow on Friday night following a 5-1 home hammering against Watford. It was the third time the Welsh side have conceded five league goals at home this season. Unsurprisingly, this has contributed to them having the second worst defensive record in the PL – conceding 52 goals.|
|Despite their heavy defeat on Friday, Cardiff are at their best in front of their home fans. They have won 66.66% of their PL points at home this season and have scored 64.0% of their goals there too. Although goals can be hard to come by, they have managed over 2.5 in just one of their 27 PL games so far.|
|Everton head to Cardiff looking to end a run of three back-to-back league defeats. However, they won’t relish being back on the road given they have managed just two away league wins all season (W2, D2, L9). Though they do boast a good record against the sides below them in the PL however, having won eight of the 13 matches against the nine PL teams beneath them in the league (W8, D2, L3).|
|The ‘Toffees’ are undefeated in their previous three matches against the home side (W2, D1). However, those two victories have been tight, with both wins coming by just a one goal margin on each occasion.|
|Players to watch: Despite playing in defence, Sol Bamba (CAR) has two goals in his previous two league matches.|
|Former Swansea-man Gylfi Sigurðsson (EVE) scored the winner the last time these two teams met.|
|Stat attack: Cardiff have scored 72.0% of their league goals in the second half.|
|Cardiff have scored 44.0% of their league goals after the 75th minute.|
|Everton have conceded two red cards in their previous four league games.|
@BetSheihk Betting Picks: I think this will be a win for the Toffees. Medium stake on Everton to win!
