Bristol City Preview – Can the Robins make home advantage count?

Nigel Pearson’s Bristol City are having another tough season in the second tier. The Robins are capable of beating any side on their day, but City have suffered 12 defeats from their 26 matches. They have won eight and drawn six of the other 14.

Bristol City have lost three of their last four in the Championship, though they did seal a 3-2 victory over Millwall in their last home league match. They followed that up with a heavy 6-2 reverse to Fulham at Craven Cottage, however.

Our betting prediction:
Draw & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1810 GMT, Thursday 20 January)

Bristol City are looking dangerously over their shoulder at the bottom three, and defeat here will only worsen their relegation fears. However, a win could open some real daylight between themselves and the chasing pack. The hosts are the favourites at 5/4.

Cardiff City Preview – Will the Bluebirds return to Wales with a positive result?

Cardiff City were among the top-six favourites before a ball was kicked this season, but the Bluebirds endured a terrible time under the experienced Mick McCarthy. Although new boss Steve Morison has steadied the ship somewhat, City are still in big trouble.

Cardiff hover just above the drop zone on 23 points, four points ahead of 22nd-place Peterborough United. Overall, the Welsh club have picked up six wins, drawn five times and suffered 14 losses. Just Peterborough have lost more.

Cardiff have fared better away from home than they have at the Cardiff City Stadium this season, and they head to Bristol having lost just one of their last six away matches. Can they return to the Welsh capital with a positive result?


Bristol City vs Cardiff City Betting Advice

Bristol City left with maximum points when the rivals clashed at the Cardiff City Stadium back in August. Andreas Weimann was the hero for the Robins, scoring in both halves in the 2-1 away win.

The Bluebirds ran out 2-0 winners in the last meeting at Ashton Gate. It was early in McCarthy’s tenure, and goals from Curtis Nelson and Kieffer Moore gave Cardiff a deserved 2-0 win.


Key Facts – Bristol City vs Cardiff City Betting Tip

  • Bristol City have lost three of their last four league and cup home matches
  • Cardiff have suffered just one defeat on the road under Morison
  • The Robins edged the reverse fixture in South Wales back in August


Six points separates the pair in the table, but there is not a lot to split these two on paper. Bristol City will fancy their chances on home soil, but Cardiff have been solid away from home since Morison inherited the managerial reigns. We fancy the rivals to play out a 1-1 draw at Ashton Gate.

Bristol City have scored the opening goal in each of their last six home league games. The hosts are priced at 8/11 to open the scoring in this one.
