Cardiff go into their midweek match having lost the South Wales Derby 3-0 to their rivals, Swansea City. It was their fourth EPL match in their last six in which they failed to score.
In their last six home matches in the Premier League they have gone 2-1-2 while scoring five goals, but conceding 11 with just one clean sheet. They were, again, kept from scoring in three of these matches.
The Villans have now lost two matches in a row and have given up at least two goals in each of their last five Premier League matches. They have been wildly inconsistent this season and in their last six away EPL games they have gone 2-1-3 while scoring 8 goals and allowing 10, keeping one clean sheet and being held scoreless once.
My pick is a draw, but this is one that could go either way. In their previous meeting this season Aston Villa came away as 2-0 winners at home. Cardiff are second from the bottom with 21 points while Villa are only six points ahead in 12th place with 27 points.

Cardiff win: 2.38; Draw: 3.25; Aston Villa win: 3.00
