Hull vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 5th May 2019
Kick-off at 12.30 UK/ 13.30 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull).
Maybe, just maybe, Bristol could squeeze into the playoffs in this eleventh hour. Several things need to go their way though. First, they have to win against Hull at any cost, and that’s a prerequisite. The team is two points below the play-offs cut-off, and that makes a win necessary.
Next, they have to hope that both Derby and Middlesbrough lose their respective ties. While there’s more than enough chance for Derby to lose, considering they are going against West Brom, the Middlesbrough tie is a ‘Hail Mary’. They are pitted against the relegated Rotherham, and it’d take some doing for the team to lose.
But with nothing to lose, Bristol will surely go after the three points against the misfiring Hull, who is winless in their last four matches.

Hull vs Bristol City Prediction
Bristol has nothing to lose, and everything to gain. They will give their very best in this tie. Hull, on the other hand, considers this tie as a formality, and will not go out of their way, or play as if their lives depended on it, for the win.
It also helps that Hull is winless in the last four games, and lost three of them as well. They lost their last home tie and conceded three goals while failing to score. Bristol, meanwhile, was unbeaten in seven of their last ten matches, and in ten of their last thirteen on the road. Importantly, they won eight of these.
Going on, Bristol recorded the last two h2h wins and has been unbeaten against Hull for the last three years. The team also managed to score three or more goals in two of the last three h2h clashes.
With a shot at the Premier League within their grasp, trust Bristol to deliver.
