Bristol City vs Huddersfield
England- FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 5th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
The Robins are high on confidence after a 0-2 away win over Stoke City in their last Championship match. With that good start to a New Year they will be aiming to stay in the FA Cup with a possible win over Huddersfield on Saturday.
They are enjoying an 8 match unbeaten run which includes 4 wins. Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in 6 of those 8 games. At home they are undefeated in 4 matches on the trot at present. This performance has given the Robins a spot just outside the top-10 places.
Huddersfield has fallen to the bottom of the Premier League. They are unable to cope with the competitions among England’s elite clubs. A 8 match losing run is going on for the team coached by David Wagner. The last of those defeats came against Burnley in the previous Premier League game against Burnley.
More than 2.5 goals came in 3 of their last 4 matches in the league. Currently they are suffering from a 4 match losing streak in away games. All these games have been against tough opponents like Manchester United and Arsenal.
This will be the first match in FA Cup for these two teams and it promises to be a close game for sure.
Bristol City vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Bristol has 3 wins and 2 defeats in the last 5 games.
- All these 5 games had a score of over 2.5 goals at the final whistle.
- The Robins are on a 2 match win streak against this opposition at this venue.

Bristol City vs Huddersfield: Predictions
Bristol is unbeaten in their last 4 home games at present. With the home fans cheering at their loudest, the hosts may pull off a third consecutive win against Huddersfield at this ground. The travelling side have lost majority of their recent away games too. I recommend placing a bet on the home side to win with 1.65 odd.
All the 3 previous encounters between these two sides here have yielded a final score with more than 2.5 goals. That is not likely to change here also. The hosts have scored a healthy 32 goals from their 26 Championship matches. With a poor defensive side like Huddersfield they can get some on Saturday too. So a bet can be placed on a score of over 2.5 goals with 2.25 odd.
Bristol City vs Huddersfield: Betting Tips
Home team to win @ 1.65 (7/11).
Over 2.5 goals in total @ 2.25 (5/4).
