Huddersfield vs Bristol City Prediction
Huddersfield made a swift return to losing ways last week after Swansea took them down on the road with a 3-1 scoreline. Miserably, the hosts are now without a win in their past three games in the running and have come out on top just once in their previous five.
At the moment, the home team are on the brink of falling into the relegation zone and are just two points shy of the same as well.
Meanwhile, Bristol City are currently sitting seventh on the ladder, three points adrift of a playoff spot to the Premier League. Be that as it may, the visitors have been struggling to pick up the win as of late.
As a matter of fact, the hosts are on a two-match losing streak as we speak, the most recent of which saw them admit defeat to West Brom by a 3-0 scorecard. However, the guests have been at the losing end just once in their past four trips on the road.
In sharp contrast, Huddersfield are sporting the worst home statistics in the cluster. Taking into account that the visitors also managed to make light work of the hosts in the reverse fixture, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Bristol City this week.
Having said that, the guests have secured the bragging rights just once in their past five visits to this stadium. Considering that the home team have also salvaged a point five times here this term, it will be safer to back a double chance.
Furthermore, the visitors know their way around in the final third, even on the road. Impressively, they have found the back of the net twenty-four times across various venues this season.
On the other hand, the hosts have scored two goals or more in four of their previous six clashes at home. Given that three of their past four h2h meetings here have also witnessed over 2.5 goals on the charts, a high scoring affair is certainly in the reckoning come Tuesday.
