Bristol City News and Form

Bristol City are having a hard time getting their momentum back after having had their big seven-match winning streak snapped. They have only taken one victory in their last seven played now. Bristol City suffered a 2-1 defeat against Birmingham last time out at home, the Blues currently a top ten side. Now they are playing host to the second-placed Leeds so are not going to have an easy time getting back their form. Bristol City are W7 D5 L5 at home this season in the Championship. The loss against Birmingham snapped a seven-match unbeaten home streak they were on.

Low scoring games have been a feature of the action this season at Ashton Gate. Only 35% of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals. That is because they have been pretty tight at the back. Bristol City have been sitting level at the halftime break in 10 of their 17 home games. Of their home goals which they have produced, 76% have been scored in the second period of matches. While their home form has gone out of the window, they are on a sixteen match scoring streak in the division. They have netted in each of their last eight.

Leeds News and Form

The Whites posted a huge 4-0 home win over promotion challengers West Brom last weekend. That was some result by them. While that kept their home form going strong, they did suffer a defeat in their last league road game. That was a 1-0 reverse out against QPR at Loftus Road. Leeds have a W8 D4 L5 on their travels and strangely enough, three of those defeats were against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. In their last six away games, Leeds are at just W1 D2 L3.

Still, they have been scoring consistently and they average 1.6 goals per away game. They will be a little worried about the amount that they have been conceding lately though. The victory over West Brom last weekend is the only clean sheet that they have taken in eight games, home and away. Leeds have gone without a clean sheet in their last six fixtures on the road. They have been level at the halftime break in 11 of their 17 away games. They have scored 74% of their away goals in the second half of matches. Leeds have actually only opened the scoring in five of their seventeen away games this season.

Bristol City v Leeds Predictions

Leeds to win: Leeds will have had their self-belief topped up after hammering West Brom last weekend. That may be enough to carry them through their contest at Ashton Gate with the Robins just having lost their way a little bit.
