Cardiff City vs Bristol City
English League Championship
Date: Sunday, 25th February 2018
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium (Cardiff).
Cardiff have secured again their 2nd place. The team has 4 points advantage over Aston Villa after the midweek fixtures. The Bluebirds returned to form and it will be difficult from now on to get them off the direct promotion place.
On Wednesday Cardiff took a hard but very important victory. They visited Ipswich which are usually a tough nut to break especially at home. After a goalless first half the only goal in the game was score by Zohore in the 65th minute. Ipswich tried to put Cardiff under pressure but failed to score giving Cardiff all the points.
Bristol are in a tough period since New Year. They have just 1 victory in 2018. The team’s performances took a sharp decline after the dramatic defeat to Wolves in December. The team is trying to improve in recent weeks but a series of tough games are still denying them from victory.
Midweek Bristol had a tough challenge provided by Fulham. Cottagers are outstanding visitors and expectedly caused Bristol some troubles. Mitrovic opened the score for Fulham early on while later Bobby Reid equalized. The second half saw no goals despite both sides having some chances and the game finished 1-1.

Cardiff vs Bristol: Predictions
Bristol may be trying to come out of their slump in form but they have some tough fixtures and that won’t help them. The team looks unconvincing and going against high-flying Cardiff will be tough. Cardiff on the other side are in-form playing especially well at home. The game should favour the hosts and with Cardiff ability to keep clean sheets may have little goals.
