Bristol City vs Cardiff City
England – League Championship
Date: Saturday, 14th January 2017
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate, Bristol.

Bristol City’s poor form continued this New Year, they failed to win their first 2 games. They will be hoping to turn things around as they host Cardiff City at Ashton Gate this Saturday.

Bristol City have been very poor, they are winless in their last 7 games in all competitions and have lost their last 6 championship games. They were unable to beat a lower division side Fleetwood in the FA Cup as they drew with them last week. They need to halt the bad form quickly, else they will slide into the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Cardiff may not be in the best of shape, but they are way better than their host. With both teams tied on same point (27), the winner will be sure to stay away from the relegation zone. Cardiff will do everything possible to get at least a point in this game.

Bristol City have been on a quick decline since they lost to Cardiff in the reverse of this fixture in October. They have managed to win just twice since then, and have lost 12 games and drawn twice. But Cardiff City are in a better shape than their host and we might see a repeat of the first leg in this game.

We are expecting Cardiff to get at least a draw in the game and also we expect the game to see at least 3 goals.
