Bristol City vs Bournemouth
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 3 March 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium.
The Cherries are placed sixth in the table at the moment, and are desperate to qualify for the playoffs. Only two teams have scored more goals than them this league season, and they are high on confidence after securing a win against the in-form Hornets.
They also are being furiously chased by the likes of Barnsley and Cardiff, and this puts them under pressure to post some urgent points on the board.
On top of that, they also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years.
Meanwhile, the Robins are one of the worst teams in the competition, barring some unexpected wins in the last few game weeks. They have been conceding goals at a high rate, and at home they are on a totally dismal run.
By the looks of things, expect Bournemouth to have the upper hand this Wednesday at the Ashton Gate Stadium.
However, do note that Jonathan Woodgate’s men have had some problems with defense lately, and Nigel Pearson’s men have been scoring at will in the past few match-days.
As such, expect goals to come from both sides of the pitch this Wednesday.
Bristol vs Bournemouth: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Cherries recorded a 1-0 win in the reverse encounter.
- They had recorded three of the former five overall wins.
- Since 1999, the hosts have scored two or more goals in all but two games at this stadium.
- It’s been 16 years since the guests have won at this venue.
Bristol vs Bournemouth Prediction
The Robins recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Swansea. In the meantime, Woodgate’s men registered a 1-0 win at home the past game week, against Watford.
Going on, Pearson’s men had lost seven of their preceding nine overall fixtures, and they have lost 100% of their appearances at home after the last week of January.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in five of their former seven overall match-ups, and they have lost just five times on the road all through this Championship campaign.
On top of that, the Cherries also have a superb h2h record against this foe over the years.
For the reasons, expect Bournemouth to have the upper hand this Wednesday, and post the three points on the board.
However, note that the Robins have been the better team in h2h clashes at this venue over the past two decades, and have scored in plenty in the process.
Likely, expect the BTTS bet to make good returns as these two take the pitch.
