Bristol City vs Sheffield United
England – Championship
Date: Monday, 18 April 2022
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium.
Sheffield are placed sixth in the table, and these coming four match-days are going to be crucial for the team. They need to make sure that they secure a top-six finish at any cost.
As of now, they do have a lead of two points over the seventh-placed Middlesbrough, but it needs to considered that they have a game in hand. But they are next pitted against the third-placed Huddersfield, and this is the opportunity to strike.
Sheffield must make this Monday count.
Meanwhile, Bristol are going through a poor stretch of performances at the moment. They are conceding goals in huge numbers, and they have also been one of the worst teams at home.
It also deserves to be mentioned that they have no chance of making it to the playoffs, or be relegated either. And that lack of drive can be clearly seen in their results lately.
Moreover, they also have an inferior h2h record against this rival in recent encounters.
By the looks of things, expect a win for Sheffield this Monday at the Ashton Gate Stadium.
