Bristol City vs Swansea City
Date: Saturday, 2 February 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
Bristol City are flying high at the start of the year. They won six on the trot and are unbeaten in past 12 games across competitions coming into this weekend’s home fixture with Swansea City.
Such splendid run of form saw them come right on the brink of play-offs spots being only two points shy of sixth-placed Derby County.
Can the Robins keep shining on Saturday afternoon when Swansea City come to visit Ashton Gate in one of the most interesting ties of Matchday No 30?
The visitors will head into this high on confidence too following their own streak of seven successive matches without a defeat. They, however, disappointed their fans on Tuesday evening by playing only a 3-3 draw against ten-man Birmingham City at Liberty Stadium.
They had an extra man on the pitch in the entire second half, but still conceded two goals within a range of four minutes to almost lose the affair. Striker Oliver McBurnie had to save a point with a last-gasp 94th-minute equalizer.
The Scotsman completed a brace on the evening to take his league tally to 13 and stopping him will be the biggest challenge to Bristol City’s defensive line here.
Bristol City vs Swansea City: Head-to-head
It’s been seven year since these two likes last met each other before this term’s clash at Liberty Stadium.
It was won by Bristol City 0-1 back in late-August last year.
The Robins were always a tricky opposition to Swansea City, especially in matches at Ashton Gate where the Swans only won 1 of 7 ties with Bristol City.
Bristol City vs Swansea City: Prediction
The visitors are just three points shy of 7th-placed Bristol City ahead of this tie. It means there is plenty at stake on Saturday, but we somehow have top many reasons to back the hosts here. The H2H tradition in matches at Ashton Gate, combined with a seven-win streak gives value to the Robins’ win at 2.15 odd s here.
Furthermore, Swansea conceded goals with ease in mid-week tie against struggling Birmingham City. This is why we will alternatively go with Bristol City to net two or more goals on the afternoon at the odds of 2.20.
