Bristol City vs Birmingham City
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 10 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
Bristol City are looking at the slump in form at the worst moment of the season. The Robins have lost two on the bounce without scoring a single time along the way. They’ve dropped out of the top six spots as a result and they’ll be desperate to return on the winning ways on Tuesday evening when Birmingham City come to visit Ashton Gate Stadium.
To make things worse for Lee Johnston and his men, the timing for the clash with the Blues could hardly be worse. The visitors have been struggling badly wit the form ever since the start of the season, but they will come into this clash high on confidence after a run off three wind and a draw in last four games in the Championship.
Such streak has helped Gary Monk’s side escape the danger area. They are currently three points above and they have solid chances of saving the second tier status in the remaining five games of the competition. Monk can particularly be proud of his team’s defensive displays since Birmingham City have been very hard to break down recently. They’ve only conceded once in last four league games.
Bristol City vs Birmingham City: Head-to-head
Birmingham City have always been tricky rivals for the Robins.
The Blues have won six and drawn one of last seven ties with Bristol City.
The Robins have only scored one goal in last four matches against Birmingham City.
Bristol City vs Birmingham City: Prediction
The hosts are four points shy of the promotional playoffs and this is one of the last trains to catch for them.
However, we can’t back the home win given that the Blues have been super stern defensively of late and backing a low-scoring contest looks to be a much better option.
The head to head results also speak in Birmingham’s favour which is why we will alternatively back the Robins to score less than two goals in the match.
