Bristol City vs Cardiff
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium.
The Robins are placed ninth in the table, and need a surplus of just three points to get into the top-most tier. It needs to be noted that they have a game in hand as well.
They have been struggling a bit lately, and for the reason, the team will be determined to put an end to their struggles and get back to their unbeaten ways.
It helps that they are at home, and are pitted against the dismal Bluebirds.
Note that Mick McCarthy’s men are on a long winless run, and have lost most of these games. They have also been conceding goals in plenty in the process.
Moreover, in recent years, Dean Holden’s men have also been the better team in h2h encounters over the years.
Taking these factors into account, expect Bristol to deliver a winning performance this Saturday.

Holden’s men lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Derby. In the meantime, the Bluebirds were held to a 1-1 draw at home the past game week, by Millwall.
Going on, the Robins had won four of their last six overall matches, and they had scored two or more goals in all these fixtures. At home, they are also on a four-game winning run, and here too they had scored two or more goals in all these appearances.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on an eight-match winless streak, and they had lost six of these fixtures.
They had also conceded two or more goals in seven of their past ten games, and on the road, they were winless in eight of their past ten road trips.
Going on, Holden’s men also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years.
Considering these stats, expect Bristol to deliver the winning performance this Saturday.
