We said: West Bromwich Albion 1-0 Cardiff City

West Brom have an impressive record of clean sheets at The Hawthorns, and they should be confident of continuing that trend against a goal-shy Cardiff on Tuesday. The Bluebirds could be lifted by an influx of new signings and the returning Ramsey into their XI in this one, but we still believe that the visitors will return to Wales empty-handed. Read more.
