Bristol City vs West Brom
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 9th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
West Brom is almost sure of a spot in the playoffs unless a catastrophe takes place. The team has a ten-point buffer with just six matches remaining in the competition. Now, all that needs is for them to go after the direct-promotion spots, which would reduce their workload and extra formality by a considerable amount, and would calm down the nerves of the fans as well. The team will have to make up a deficit of seven points in the next games though, for that to happen.
Bristol is in possession of the last playoff position as of now and has a game in hand. Amidst this positivity, the only thing that might be bothering them would be that their nearest competitor, Aston, is taking on a relegation-battler, and as such City needs to deliver in this game.

Bristol City vs West Brom Prediction
In the last 20 years, only once has Bristol won against this team. That’s an incredibly long stretch, and for sure West Brom will be finding inspiration from that. Moreover, Bristol has never kept a clean sheet against this opponent and conceded two or more in six of the ten meetings. In addition, Bristol was winless in seven of their last nine games, and in the last five at home. Also, Brom was unbeaten in 22 of their last 27 ties, and in ten of their last thirteen on the road.
Importantly, West Brom has an eight-point lead over City in the league table and had won the reverse fixture with a 4-2 scoreline. Expect them to repeat the feat.
Bristol will fight though. They have a game in hand and consider this match as an opportunity to consolidate their playoff position. Moreover, they are at home, and only once have they failed to score against this team in official encounters. It also leads to the incredible stat that, only one official h2h meeting has ever ended without goals from both squads.
Expect either party to take part in goal-scoring.
