Bristol City vs Swansea
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
Bristol City (Robins) are clearly behind the visiting side on the league table at the start of the season. Swansea (Swans) has lost their previous match at home, which will produce distress in the camp. They were in an unbeaten streak before that and will certainly affect their style of play in the tour.
The Robins have an overall unbeaten five-game streak in the league and have lost only one home match from the three games they have hosted in the league. The match will be a tight cut event and can see whether the visitors can outsmart the home team.
Bristol City vs Swansea Head-to-head (h2h)
- Robins have more wins than the host at their home (W4 D3 L1) since 2001 League One games.
- Their previous meeting held here was won by the host with a 2-0 score.
- The host was unbeaten at home for continuous ten years from 2001 to 2010 in major competitions.
- Swansea tasted success at this venue only once, and that was eight years ago.
Bristol City vs Swansea Prediction
The host has netted most of their goals in the second half of the game in recent times. To be clear, they have scored at least one goal after the match restarts in four of their recent five games. Moreover, 6 of their 11 goals were slotted in at the late hour of the game. Hence, there are more chances that the second half will see some definite actions from the home side.
Bristol City has lost only once in the last 19 years at their home ground against the Swans. Moreover, they have four wins from the last five overall meetings with the visitor. Also, Swansea had marked their lone win almost nine years before. Alongside that, their previous meeting ended with a 2-0 score favoring the host and both goals were scored in the second half.
As such, there is a more probable chance for Bristol City to secure their three points and send the visitor back emptyhanded.
