THE PREDICTION

Sheffield Wednesday begin their season with a 12-point deduction for financial issues off the pitch. Whether that has an impact on them off the pitch is yet to be seen, but they would have hoped for an easier first game. Cardiff were beaten in last season’s playoff semi-finals and despite the termination of winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing’s contract, along with prospect of Lee Tomlin potentially being ruled out through injury, the Bluebirds look a strong outfit. Neil Harris’ side are eying up promotion once again this campaign and should get off to a good start with victory here.
