Cardiff Stadium
Saturday 18th August

Cardiff didn’t find life in the premier league interesting on the opening day, Bournemouth were just too strong for them, despite their goalkeeper saving a penalty from Callum Wilson, the young forward still beat him from close range late on in the game, Cardiff fought as best as they could but it was a better forgotten afternoon for them.

Newcastle labored in vain at home to Tottenham Hotspur on day one, they leveled after the clock recorded a goal for Jan Vertonghen, rightfully too but just by a few millimeters, Dele Alli bundled home not long after, all within the first eighteen minutes.

Three points at stake here must be coveted by both Neil Warnock and Rafa Benitez, it’s too early to be doomed, you have to fight with everything within you to stay relevant. Does home advantage count here?

Well, Cardiff made their home ground a fortress in the championship, something the Magpies must be wary of.

Betting Prediction: Newcastle to win or draw
