Match Pack: Home Fixture, Championship, Cardiff City, #LEICAR, your exclusive preview update

Leicester must build on their two last performances coming out of their two first games with two wins as this game follows, and on paper a game surely to bring in 3 poinst from.

Mads Hermansen is still in doubt, Cesare Casadei being available for selection, so interesting to see what the young man from Chelsea, that arrived on a year loan, will bring to the table if starting or at least getting minutes from the bench.

Conor Coady and Alex Smithies are the two certainly not being read to play, with both Mads Hermansen and Victor Kristiansen must surely clear to play if chosen.

Leicester are big favourites to bring home all three points from the event, as we are very much looking forward to a game that could see Leicester with three wins in their opening three games of the season and hopefully moving forward with pace as points are collected.

The big talk of course at Cardiff City is the return of Aaron Ramsey (32), coming in from Juventus, as the former Arsenal midfielder must be seen as one of the best players of his generation.

Cardiff City Football Club (Welsh: Clwb Pêl-droed Dinas Caerdydd) is a professional association football club based in Cardiff, Wales. It competes in the Championship, the second tier of the English football league system. Founded in 1899 as Riverside A.F.C., the club changed its name to Cardiff City in 1908 and entered the Southern Football League in 1910 before joining the English Football League in 1920. The team has spent 17 seasons in the top tier of English football, the longest period being between 1921 and 1929. Their most recent season in the top flight was the 2018–19 Premier League season.

Cardiff is the only team from outside England to have won the FA Cup, doing so in 1927. They have also reached three other cup finals in English competitions, the 1925 FA Cup Final against Sheffield United, the 2008 FA Cup Final against Portsmouth and the 2012 Football League Cup Final against Liverpool, suffering defeat on each occasion. They have won the Welsh Cup on 22 occasions, making them the second-most successful team in the competition’s history behind Wrexham.

With the exception of a short period this century, the team has played in home colours of blue and white since 1908, from which their nickname “The Bluebirds” derives. Cardiff’s first permanent ground was Ninian Park, which opened in 1910; it remained in use for 99 years until the club moved into the Cardiff City Stadium in 2009. Cardiff has long-standing rivalries with nearby clubs Swansea City, with whom they contest the South Wales derby, and Bristol City, with whom they contest the Severnside derby. The club’s record appearance holder is Billy Hardy, who made 590 appearances in a 20-year playing spell with Cardiff, and their record goalscorer is Len Davies with 179 goals, read more


The New Balance Cardiff City 2023-24 home shirt blends three shades of blue together, using rhombus shapes and diagonal cut-off lines to create a sort of distorted striped effect. White piping runs down the seam of the raglan sleeves. The collar is mandarin style and has a single button at the front.
