The defending Premier League champions, Manchester City started their campaign in the 2018/19 season with quite good results through 4 wins from 5 matches that have taken place. On the 6th matchdays, Pep Guardiola’s squad will face one of the promotion teams this season, Cardiff City. The match itself is planned to take place on Saturday night, September 22, 2018 at Cardiff Stadium, Wales.
Cardiff City will play as the host in the match, but on paper, the fact is that Manchester City are far superior. Considering Citizen were the defending champions who won the Premier League trophy in last season’s campaign, Cardiff City was one of the promotion teams this season. In the record of his last five games in all competitions, the hosts have also never won with three successive defeats that they swallowed before the encounter against Manchester City later.
Whereas Manchester City as we said, started the campaign this season with satisfying results, through the incision of four wins and one time held in a draw.
