Bristol City vs Preston
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).

Bristol City is in a tough spot in the league, looking for a way back into winning ways. They have lost four of their recent five clashes in the campaign.

Their previous encounter was on the road, and they lost to Luton with a 2-1 score on the board. The host has picked up 33 points from 10 wins and 3 draws in their 22 league clashes.

Preston had their hopes back with three consecutive wins in their schedule as of late. However, they could not hold on to that streak, as they suffered a defeat last time out in the campaign.

They will visit on the back of that 1-0 loss at home against Nottingham Forest in the league. The visitor is just one point behind the host with 10 wins and 2 draws in their 23 attempts.

Bristol City vs Preston Prediction

There is a good chance to see both teams find the back of the net in ninety minutes. The reason to back the BTTS is their similar form in the campaign this season, as it stands. The sides are just a point apart on the table and also show almost the same scoring averages in the league.

The host has scored 23 goals in their 22 attempts while conceding 24 in return. In the meantime, the Lilywhites have slotted in 30 goals in 23 appearances until now, conceding 31 goals in the process. So, the tip for BTTS will probably be a suitable option from the goals department.

The away win in full-time will be the ideal choice. Preston has been unbeaten in their last 15 h2h meetings with the host. Besides, the host has lost four of their last five matches. To be safer, the double chance favoring Preston will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
