Bristol City vs Derby
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
Quite easily one of the fiercest games on offer this weekend in the Championship. Both these teams have a game in hand, in regards to the rest of the teams in the competition, and are dangerously close to the playoffs – Derby is the last team in the zone with 67 points, while Bristol lies below them with 66 points.
The victor of this tie will receive a major push towards the playoffs, considering the three points on offer, and the fact that another strong and direct contender for the spot will be left behind.
While Derby is higher in league standings, their current away form is a cause of concern for fans, and Bristol will be trying their maximum to cash in on their home status.

Bristol City vs Derby Prediction
Derby is winless in their last nine away ties in a row, and the last such win was against a team from a lower division. In the meanwhile, Bristol was unbeaten in seven of their last ten matches, and in 13 of their last 16 at home. Moreover, Bristol was unbeaten in the last five h2h ties, and since 2008, only three away wins have been posted in h2h encounters. As such, expect City to avoid a loss at any cost this weekend.
Going on, this game is absolutely crucial for both these teams. Important to such an extent that all of their hard work all through the season might become useful or useless based on the result of this tie. Their entry into Premier League is at stake, and the teams should give everything on the pitch to achieve it. Moreover, five of the last six h2h ties and four of the last five at this venue had goals from both teams. Expect the same to happen this Saturday.
