Bristol City vs Sheffield United
2018-19 English Championship
Date: Saturday 15th September 2018
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
Bristol City got off to a slow start in the Championship where they opened their account with a 2-2 draw against Bolton and then a 2-0 loss to Middlesbrough. But they have been able to turn their form around dramatically and seized on the opportunity to win 3 games in a row.
This started a comprehensive 3-0 win against QPR and wins against Swansea and Blackburn followed with the Blackburn victory sticking in the minds with a 4-1 win. City have picked up more points than away but after their brilliant win last time out they will want to continue that.
Sheffield United have been the form team in the league where they come into this match having won their last 4 games in a row. They have scored 7 goals in their last two games after brilliant wins against Aston Villa and Bolton. Depending on results the Blades could go top of the league with a win but will have to watch out as Bristol City could leap frog them if the home side get the win.

Bristol City vs Sheffield United: Prediction
Our main bet will be to see both teams to score. Goals are in both sides and this looks like a given for a game that should be very open early on.
Sheffield United are showing a lot of quality and do love coming to this ground so for smaller stakes we will opt for the away win.
But this should be a close game that really could go either way as the match should be filled with end to end attacks from both sets of teams.
