The Robins were one of the bright teams in the league up until last week when they sitting on a 4 match winning streak. However, they are coming after back-to-back away defeats, 2-4 at West Brom and 0-1 to Wigan. This is not better time to get back to home turf where they notched up wins in last 2 matches.

Aston Villa started the season with back-to-back wins against Hull City and Wigan. They struggled since then and bagged just 1 win from the next 7. The midweek saw them losing 1-2 at home to Sheffield Wednesday, exposing the persistent defensive issues once again.

The big question is – Can either sides lift their game and go for full three points this Friday night ?

Bristol City vs Aston Villa Head-to-head

  • Villa lead the h2h with 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss since they joined Bristol City in the Championship in 2016.
  • Their encounters at Villa Park has been pretty one sided dominated by the hosts.
  • The Robins are unbeaten in the h2h meetings at Aston Gate, won 3-1 in 2016 and drew 1-1 in 2017.

Bristol City vs Aston Villa Prediction

This is expected to a closely contested battle, yet Bristol walk into Aston Gate as slight favourites. The Robins are coming on the back of consecutive away defeats, but they are a different proportion as a home team.

Scoring goals is not a problem for Lee Johnson’s men and to aid them is a porous defense of Aston Villa, who found it hard to defend leads far too often this season.

As for full-time result, my money is on Bristol to avoid a defeat. Therefore, I will take my chances by backing them on an AH 0, to ensure stake is returned if the match ends in a draw or away win.

But, my main or top pick has to be both teams to score. The reasons are bright as a warm sunny day since Villa conceded in all their 4 away games this season and Bristol kept 1 clean sheet from same number of home games this season. Also, their 2 Championship h2h clashes at the Aston Gate ended up with btts.

Bristol City vs Aston Villa Betting Tips

Both teams to Score @ 8/11 (1.73) is my recommended best pick for this Championship fixture.

Bristol City ‘0’ Asian HC @ 8/7 (1.88) odd is a decent alternate.
