Bristol City vs Leeds United
2017/18 EFL Championship
Date: Saturday, 21th October 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/16:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate.
That’s one of the most anticipated games this round. Bristol are looking like an improved side from last season while Leeds despite having a lot of quality are showing some weaknesses.
Bristol could feel disappointed from their performance last round. The team hosted Burton in what was looking like a certain 3 points. Despite the home sides efforts Burton held firm and denied them for a goalless draw.
Leeds suffered defeat last game. The team is considered strong host but somehow failed to deliver against Reading. In a drab match each team had its chances but Reading dealt a deadly blow in the 84th minute. The only goal was scored by Barrow in the 84th minute.
Form and Tactical Analysis
Bristol could be named the pleasant surprise this season. They are sitting 4th in the table and their form looks outstanding. The team is undefeated since the 2nd round picking 4 victories and 6 draws. At home they have 3 victories and 3 draws. They just need a bit of consistency as they tend to score easily in some games and fail up front in other.
The team plays in a 4-4-2 formation with big-small man partnership up front. Strong target man and quick striker.
Leeds had an outstanding run of games scoring a lot and keeping clean sheets. Now they have 3 straight defeats and 4 in the last 5 games and the team looks really different. They failed to score on both last games while conceding 4. Away from home the team has lost 3 in a row as the visits to Wednesday, Cardiff and Millawal all didn’t go according to plan.
Leeds played their typical 4-2-3-1 formation with Lasogga leading the line and Saiz behind him.
Bristol vs Leeds: Head to head
- Leeds has a complete domination in the recent head to head clashes. 8 victories out of the last 10 games between the sides against just a single victory for Bristol.

Bristol vs Leeds: Prediction
Leeds may have the quality but their recent performances are not speaking well. Bristol is outstanding at home and will be looking to take down a team close to them in the table. Leeds are having troubles on the road and the game will be even harder against a strong host.
