Aston Villa vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham).
One of the fiercest matches the Championship has to offer this match-day. Both these teams are in contention for the playoffs and have a nominal lead to defend their objective, as of now. These two possesses the last two such spots, which afford a chance to take part in the post-season proceedings, and as such are open to siege from the teams lying just below.
With five more rounds remaining in the competition, the victor of this tie will almost certainly finish above the other in the league table at the end of the season. Also, since both are in the run for the top-six spots, a win will not only give the team a valuable lead but also curtail the progression of an opponent.

Aston Villa vs Bristol City Prediction
Villa is certainly the most in-form team in the competition right now. They won the last seven matches in a row, and as an added bonus they are at home. They are also in need of this win, as Bristol trails by a single point, while having a game in hand. Should Bristol win this tie that will prove to be a massive disadvantage to Aston, whereas if Bristol loses, Villa can claim the playoffs almost comfortably.
H2h games surely tip the scales in favor of the hosts. At this venue, Aston has a 100% winning record and has scored two or more goals in all of their encounters. Even better, the last such game saw Villa registering a 5-0 win. Impressively, Bristol has never scored here.
Finally, against Aston’s seven-match winning streak, Bristol has to raise their record of seven winless games from the last ten attempts. Moreover, Aston scored two or more goals in their last five fixtures, while Bristol conceded the same in three of their last four.
Rightfully expect Villa to take the win, and score at least two goals.
