Bristol City vs Hull City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
Bristol City got off to a dream start of a huge derby with promotional rivals Middlesbrough when Milan Djuric broke the deadlock just 13 minutes into the game. Nonetheless, the Robins failed to hold on to the lead allowing Boro to complete a comeback in the second half and extend their crisis. Bristol City now lost three of last four league ties, a streak that seriously halted their push for the playoffs come May.
Lee Johnson’s men are now four points below the sixth place and they will be desperate to pick up the victory on Saturday afternoon when Hull City come to visit Ashton Gate Stadium. The Tigers removed all doubts as far as their survival in the second tier is, but they could not keep the hot run of form going last weekend when they surprisingly fell 0-1 at home to Sheffield Wednesday.
The loss came as a massive surprise since the team previously won two on the bounce netting as many as nine goals in the process.
Bristol City vs Hull City: Head-to-head
Sides have six wins apiece coming into their 18th head to head encounter.
At least three goals were scored in each of last three H2H ties, while both teams were on target in three of last four head to head matches.
The Robins took a 2-3 victory in a five-goal thriller at KCOM Stadium when the teams met in late-November last year.
Bristol City vs Hull City: Prediction
Bristol City generally play very well at Ashton Gate where they won three of last four league ties. Overall, they lost just one of last seven home matches in the league. Nonetheless, Lee Johnson’s side also won only one of last five league games and you should be careful with the stakes backing the home win here.
The hosts are indeed much closer to snatching the spoils given that the Tigers have nothing to play for here and that they will come into this off the back of a disappointing 0-1 loss to Sheffield Wednesday. However, we see BTTS as a much better betting option since this scenario happened in three of last four H2H games between these two sides.
