Bristol City vs Blackburn Prediction and Analysis

The Robins never really troubled Championship opponents throughout the season but have been awful recently with just a win in their preceding 6 fixtures. They are 19th in the league with 19 points and are 7 points clear of the relegation zone.

The visitors on the other side got off to an incredible start to the campaign losing just once in their opening 9 games in the league, they have since had a slight drop in form and have lost 4 games. They are 7th in the league, outside the promotion spots only on goal difference.

Bristol City are going through one of their worst run of games in recent memory losing 5 of their 6 games. We do not see them troubling the visitors who have 3 wins in their last 4, despite having home advantage.

Brereton has been carrying the Rovers attack contributing to 46% of the teams’ goals. The Chilean forward who is currently the league’s joint second highest goal scorer has scored in all but 2 of the teams’ wins this season.
