Bristol City vs Derby County
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 21 November 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium.
The Rams are the worst team in the league at the moment, and they are placed dead last in the table. They have so far recorded a single win through this campaign, and have also scored the least number of goals of all the teams in the contest.
Meanwhile, the Robins are placed in the top-most tier of the table. In fact, they are just two points away from securing a spot at the pinnacle of standings, and considering that they are taking on the bottom-most placed squad in the league, they surely do harbor hopes of delivering a huge win this weekend.
Going on, they also have a good record at home recently, and they have an impressive face-to-face record against this opponent over the past few years.
Likely, expect Bristol City to have the upper hand at the Ashton Gate Stadium.

Bristol City vs Derby: Prediction
The Robins had recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Cardiff. In the meantime, DCFC lost 0-2 at home against Barnsley.
Going on, Holden’s men are on a two-fixture winning run, and they were unbeaten in 15 of their preceding 20 overall games. In fact, they had also won nine of their last fifteen fixtures, and in the process had even recorded a five-match winning run.
At home, they were invincible in nine of their last twelve appearances, and had also recorded a four-game winning run in the process.
On the other hand, their opposite number are on a seven-fixture winless run, and they had also remained so in 19 of their 21 preceding games. On the road, they were winless in seven of their last nine match-ups as well.
