Sunday’s massive derby clash at the Liberty Stadium headlines this weekend’s Championship action and aided by home advantage, Swansea look a decent bet to get the better of rivals Cardiff for the second time this season.
Brendan Rodgers’ side were beaten by Leyton Orient in the FA Cup in their last home match but they bounced back impressively in midweek with a 2-0 victory at Bristol City and their record on their own patch is bettered only by that of leaders QPR.
Furthermore, Cardiff have lost four of their last five league encounters on the road and have beaten the Swans just once in the pair’s last ten meetings. Subsequently, Totesport’s 6/5 marked against a home win catches the eye while for the bold, 888Sport quote 3/1 for Swansea to shade it by a one-goal margin and Stan James offer 7/1 for them to register a 1-0 triumph, as they did in the reverse fixture back in November.
