Bristol City vs Ipswich
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 12th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
Bristol is desperate to get into the playoff mix, which would allow them a shot at being a part of the Premier League, come this summer. And they are agonizingly close to it too. The team is just a single spot, and a single point below qualification, as of now.
The team had a tough schedule in the last few weeks, with the likes of Norwich, Leeds, and Wolves going against them, and had to endure some hard results.
With the upcoming tie against Ipswich, the last-placed team in the table, and the additional home advantage going in their favor, City will be raring to go out and record a huge win for themselves.
The visitors are 12 points below any semblance of safety, and with just ten rounds remaining, doesn’t harbor many hopes about being in the next edition of this competition. Along with being the dead-last team in league standings, they also hold the distinction of being the only team to concede 60 or more goals so far.
