The season has not been the best for Cardiff City and after movement in and out of the drop zone, they can’t wait to finally get further away from the low reaches and with two crucial wins going to this game, they will feel confident enough to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers, who just advanced to the quarter finals of the FA Cup and are also on a high after three unbeaten outings. Cardiff City have five wins in their last nine home matches in the Premier League; they have not conceded in the last two and have three clean sheets in the last five. Wolves, on the other hand, have five wins in their last 10 matches and have lost just once. In their last 15 matches, they have lost just three. Away from home in the Premier League, they will be hoping for a first win in three, after picking a loss and a draw in the last two. Wolves have managed just four wins in their last 15 away league matches. Each of the last three matches between the two sides have yielded over 2.5 goals with both sides scoring and each side has managed two wins in the last five matches. In 22 meetings, each team has picked eight wins.
Strasbourg are ninth in Ligue 1 going into this home game against Lille. They are four points behind the final Europa League position but have been losing ground of late with only one point from their last three league games. Two games in a row had been lost before a goalless draw away at Caen last weekend. Form has been inconsistent for a while with only two home league wins in the last seven.
Lille are second in the table but 12 points behind PSG and have played two games more than the champions elect. They are in good form though with no defeats in their last six league games. Away form hasn't always been impressive this season but it's been turned around in recent months. The last five away league games have all ended in victory with Lille scoring at least twice in four of those matches. They have the better form and can win their eighth away league game of the season.
