Bristol City vs Preston Prediction & Match Preview

Bristol City vs Preston
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 22 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol)

Bristol is likely to finish 11th in the table this season. There are only three points between them and their upcoming opposition. But the latter has a good run of form going on right now. The hosts are currently without a win in two league matches.

The away team had to face a much inferior opposition in their recent league fixture. The win over Birmingham at home was their latest action in the league. The Lilywhites have done excellent compared to their last season. A team that finished 14th in 2018-19 edition of the Championship are currently 8th in the table.

Bristol City vs Preston: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Preston is unbeaten against this opposition in their last 13 meetings.
  • The last time Bristol won this fixture is back in February 2011.
  • In eight recent head to head matches, both teams have found the back of the net.
  • The visitors have a five-game winning streak at this ground.
  • The common score in three of five games here was 1-2.
  • The hosts have never won a head to head match here in over ten years.

Bristol City vs Preston: Prediction

Both recent wins for Bristol came against teams at the bottom of the table. Also, home games are not one of their strong points. From 22 games at this ground, they have 8 wins and defeats each. Also, they are one of the few teams who have conceded 30 or more goals at home. On the other hand the visitors had to face some tough opposition in recent weeks. They won against Nottingham and lost to Brentford during this spell of play. Even though a playoff spot is out of the question I think Preston is going to win this one.

The recent head to head stats clearly shows that there will not be a shortage of goals in this one. Both of them have netted goals in eight meetings in the recent past. The hosts are known for their shabby defense all season. So I think their backline will have a hard time on Wednesday. So I am backing the visitors to win with both teams scoring.
