CAR vs WOL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Cardiff City will be aiming to move out of the relegation zone when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League at Cardiff City Stadium, in Cardiff, tomorrow on Friday night (IST).
Just 13 games into the new season and it already looks like a long long battle ahead for survival for Cardiff City and their fans.
The experience in the top-flight football won’t exude any optimism either for the current crop of players, as the club’s first ever season in the Premier League ended immediately in a relegation at the end of the 2013-14 season.
The Bluebirds have won just two games this season, scoring a meagre eleven goals. However, one point of optimism is that those two victories have come in Wales, with the latest coming in the last home match against the expected-relegation-candidate Brighton & Hove Albion; a 2-1 win.
Also, goals have been a problem for them. They are not scoring enough, while the backline is like a big leaking cauldron; 26 conceded in 13 matches, 3rd worst record in the division. The strikers are also going cold in front of the goals, with Callum Paterson remaining their top goal scorer with three goals.
However, there is some kind of momentum with the team, as of the total 11 points, six have come in the last five, and they have also conceded only 7 in those matches.
Manager Neil Warnock can also plan better for the next few weeks as most matches will be against the teams currently lying in the bottom half, starting with the Wolves.
Wolverhampton Wanderers, on the other hand, have gone South in the last five matches. They are without a win in those games with the only point coming against Arsenal at the Emirates.
That result, however, and also the two draws against both Manchester giants, showed that the team is talented enough to survive the sting of the first season in the Premier League. Though whether they can avoid the relegation is a different matter altogether, indeed manager Nuno Espírito Santo is seeking a reaction from his team after losing four times in the last five.
The result in the last match, meanwhile, could crock up their confidence to some degrees. Huddersfield, a team with no win on the road this season, ended up beating them 0-2 at Molineux last time around.
Despite not winning in the last five matches, Wolves are still sitting at 11th in the table, seven points away from the relegation zone. But the reality will be more clear for wolves in the next month or so as they brace themselves to face Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City during the festive period.

CAR vs WOL Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
We think Wolves are favourites in this match and that’s why we have built our team around them.
Bennett is a good wing-back who loves to go forward, while Bamba is one of the few Cardiff players who has performed at a high level on a consistent basis.
Moutinho and Neves select themselves, while Doherty is a good acquisition as well.
Neves will be our captain, alonwith Cardiff’s top goal-scorer Paterson.
Not many changes here, but we have flooded our midfield with Wolves’ players.
Jimenez will be our captian, and Neves vice-captain.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This will be the first top-flight meeting between these two clubs. But there is certainly a history in this fixture, 61 meetings in the lower division with Wolves coming out on top on 28 occasions, while Cardiff have 19 wins, 14 ended in draws.
Cardiff are at home in this match and we think they will get at least a draw from this game.
