On January 18 there will be a replay of the 1/32 final of the FA Cup Leeds – Cardiff The forecast for the match of these opponents was prepared by the experts of our website.
Peacocks will be easier at home
Leeds are having a difficult season in the Premier League where they have to think about keeping registration. The team is 15th in the table, only two points behind the relegation zone, but a match to play. In the last matchday “Peacocks” lost away to Aston Villa – 1: 2, which continued the streak without wins in the championship for five matches. No one expects the club to break through in the FA Cup, although it is a way to divert attention from the Premier League. In this game, you have to play to win because we didn’t save ourselves last time in vain.
The Welshman missed a good opportunity
Cardiff is a representative of the Championship, where things are not going well, because the club is only 21st, three points above the zone, which does not allow you to feel safe. In the last round, the team missed a home win against Wigan, losing 1-1 in the 90+6th minute. The series without a win in the championship is already eight games. The Welshman should not have led to a replay, now it will be hard for him to resist going away.
A week and a half ago, Cardiff came close to winning, leading 2-0 at half time. Leeds managed to come back but only equalized in extra time 2-2.
