Bristol City Preview – Will the Robins bounce back with a home win?

Bristol City had a tough 2021-22 season. Even though they were in no real danger of going down, the Robins spent all year in the lower regions and finished on just 55 points. Overall, City won 15, drew ten and lost 21.

They kicked off this campaign in the worst possible way, narrowly losing at Hull. Andreas Weimann gave the Robins a first-half lead. Ozan Tufan levelled for the Tigers from the penalty spot with 18 minutes to go, and Jean Seri won the points for the hosts at the death.

Our betting prediction:
1-1 Draw

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0952 GMT, Friday 5 August)

Bristol City will be desperate for all three points after drawing a blank in game one. They are the slight favourites on home soil at 7/5.

Sunderland Preview – Can the Black Cats return home with a positive result?

Sunderland finally won promotion from EFL League One last season, beating Wycombe Wanderers in the play-off final at Wembley Stadium. Staying up will the priority, but the Black Cats will be aiming a lot higher this season.

In a tricky opening game with Mark Robins’ well-drilled Coventry, Sunderland managed to pick up a decent point last Sunday. Jack Clarke’s early header had the Mackems dreaming of an opening weekend three points, but Viktor Gyokeres’ thumping strike six minutes from time gave City a share of the spoils at the Stadium of Light.

Bristol City vs Sunderland Betting Advice

These two teams played out a six-goal thriller at Ashton Gate in the Championship back in February 2018 when they last met. The Robins were 3-0 up at half time thanks to an Aden Flint goal and a Famara Diedhiou brace. However, three goals in the last 20 minutes earned the Black Cats an unlikely point.

Bristol City won the reverse fixture in the 2017-18 season. Bobby Decordova-Reid and Milan Djuric scored the goals in a 2-1 away success at the Stadium of Light in October 2017.


Key Facts – Bristol City vs Sunderland Betting Tip

  • Sunderland’s last victory over Bristol City came in 1999

Bristol City will be looking to respond after letting a lead slip to lose at the MKM Stadium last Saturday. Sunderland drew last weekend, and another stalemate this Saturday would be a decent result for the Mackems.

They drew 3-3 when they last met, and there is good value in 7/2 for the draw and both teams to score here. Also, take a punt on the draw at half time and full time at 4/1.
