Cardiff vs Bristol City
Date: Friday, 6 November 2020
Kick-Off at 18.00 UK
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
Cardiff have seen quite a disappointing run in late October but finally ended the winless streak as they beat Barnsley (3-0) on Tuesday, looking to build on the performance as they host Bristol City within just days. They have been scoring goals on the regular but struggled for such displays at the back, which will have Neil Harris happier.
Bluebirds scored at least a goal on five occasions beforehand but also conceded on four of those, which saw them earn six points along the way. They’ve proven their character at Cardiff City Stadium and will want to base a climb up the table on points here, which will make Friday’s clash all the more important.
Bristol have ended a winless streak of their own on Tuesday too, though. They beat Huddersfield (1-2) with late goals from Dasilva and Paterson, bouncing after seeing three losses and two draws in five games beforehand. They struggled to keep it together at the back and saw some very narrow contests along the way, promising a strong challenge in Cardiff but we feel it could ultimately have them disappointed once again.
Cardiff vs Bristol City Head-to-head
Cardiff bagged the points as they sides last met in early July, where Daniel Ward untangled it late on (0-1).

We’ve seen just three goals in the sides’ last three head-to-head encounters.
Cardiff vs Bristol City Prediction
We will now back Cardiff to secure all three points and connect their second win in a row at home ground at 2.20. They felt in good shape moving forward and we feel they’ll have what it takes to do so, even if it means outgunning the rivals in what shapes to be an unconventional head-to-head clash.
Indeed, Bristol City have seen exciting games of their own lately and we hope to see more of the same here. They scored four goals in four games now behind them, earning four points along the way. This has us hoping the visitors will find the net too and going for a YES on Both teams to score at 1.80.
