Bristol City vs Leeds
Date: Saturday, 9 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
Ashton Gate will be rocking on Saturday afternoon when second-placed Leeds United come to visit Bristol City in one of the most exciting games of Matchday No 36. The stadium is sold out completely and the biggest attendance of the season is guaranteed.
The Robins played very well throughout the season in general and they are genuine play-offs contenders. However, their form did see somewhat of a slide in recent weeks as Bristol City lost three and drew one of last four matches. Tough schedule was one of the main reasons for such slump in form as the Robins played the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers (FA Cup), Norwich City, Birmingham City and Preston North End in the process.
Leeds United are also a top-notch opposition, but can the hosts take advantage of the energy in and around Ashton Gate to claim a highly-important victory on Saturday afternoon?
Bristol City vs Leeds: Head-to-head
Bristol City will go against the head to head tradition here.
Leeds United won three and drew one of past four meetings with the Robins.
There were three or more goals scored in three of last four head to head outings.
The Peacocks claimed a 2-0 victory when teams locked horns in this term of Championship at Elland Road.
Bristol City vs Leeds: Prediction
Leeds also had some unexpected slip-ups of late, particularly on travels where they won just one of last six games across competitions. They managed, however, to boost up the confidence with one of the strongest displays of the season on Friday when they demolished fellow promotional contenders West Bromwich Albion 4-0 at Elland Road.
Bristol City and the sold-out Ashton Gate Stadium will represent a massive challenge for Marcelo Bielsa’s men who are two points adrift of Sheffield Wednesday in third place. Since the Peacocks won just one of last six games on the road, we will go for the draw as the main betting option at 3.40 odds. Yu probably won’t make a mistake with the BTTS bet as both sides scored goals with ease so far in the season.
