Two teams who have made very different starts to the 2023–24 Championship season lock horns on Saturday as Kelechi Iheanacho‘s Leicester City play host to Cardiff City. The kickoff time is 15:00 BST.

Enzo Maresca’s men are one of two teams still with a perfect championship record after the first two rounds of matches, while Erol Bulut’s men have managed just one point from a possible six so far.

Leicester City vs Cardiff City predictions

Prediction 1: Leicester City to win

Leciester have won each of their three matches in league and cup so far, and they will fancy their chances of maintaining their perfect record. We are tipping them to get the job done in front of their fans and keep the juggernaut rolling.

Prediction 2: Both teams to score

Leicester City have kept consecutive clean sheets heading into this weekend’s clash, but they have been defensively porous on home turf, where they have not kept a clean sheet since the turn of the year, so we can see Cardiff finding the back of the net here.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 yellow cards

Leicester and Cardiff have received a combined 10 yellow cards from their opening two games apiece, with Leicester alone responsible for seven of them. We are anticipating a very physical contest this weekend, which should result in at least three low cards.

Leicester City have won all three of their games this season and five of the last six across all competitions dating back to pre-season.

Cardiff City recent form

Cardiff are on a barren run of one win in six games, and more worryingly for them, their solitary win in that time came via penalties against League Two outfit Colchester in the EFL Cup.
