Sheffield United vs Bristol City
England FA Cup
Date: Wednesday, 10 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.30 UK
Venue: Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United will be hoping to boost up their confidence by reaching the FA Cup quarter-final. They will have a reasonable task to complete in the process as a second-division opposition Bristol City come to visit Bramall Lane on Wednesday evening.
The Blades got off to a horrendous start to the Premier League campaign. They were winless in the opening 17 rounds of the season. A drop to the Championship football looked inevitable just a couple of months ago.
The situation seems incomparably better at the moment. Chris Wilder’s troops won three of the last six matches in the Premier League. They are now 12 points shy of the safe zone and just four points behind the 18thplaced Fulham.
It is still a long way to go for Wilder and his troops, but they did show fantastic spirit that has led them to important wins over the likes of Manchester United and WBA lately. They went past Plymouth Argyle 2-1 in the previous round of the FA Cup.
Can they do the job against the Robins here?
Sheffield United vs Bristol City Head-to-head
- Sheffield United lead the head to head tie by 6 wins coming into the 31st meeting with the Robins.
- Bristol City, however, won three of the last four clashes against the Blades.
- It is interesting to note that five of the last six head to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.
Sheffield United vs Bristol City Prediction
Bristol City significantly halted their push for the promotional play-offs with a three-loss streak. The most recent failure came on Saturday when the Robins fell 0-2 at home to Cardiff City. They have dropped to the 10th place in the Championship standings as a consequence. Dean Holden’s men conceded five goals in the last two league outings.
This will be the music to the ears of David McGoldrick & company. Bristol City have lost six on the spin on the road in their respective division. They are going up against the elite class opponents here and the home win is the only possible betting option for us.
We’ll also look for the value in backing the hosts to score two or more goals at the 1.83 odds.
