No luck for Cardiff
While Liverpool can count themselves fortunate to get the penalty, Cardiff will feel extremely unfortunate to concede it.
Indeed, there were moments in this game where their luck just didn’t hold out. One more inch would have seen Oumar Niasse scoring an equaliser while Sean Morrison was unlucky not to score from a corner.
Cardiff’s luck has been desperately low in recent weeks, the incidents in this game just the latest example of things going against them.
With the relegation battle so tight at this stage of the season, they’ll be praying their lack of luck doesn’t end in relegation.
