Swansea vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 18 July 2020
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium.
The Swans are still trying to get into a playoff position. They have to fight with Cardiff and Millwall for that last available spot. Currently they are 8th in the table and are also on a winless run at the moment.
Bristol City on the other hand has remained unbeaten in three previous league matches. They have a poor defence which has conceded the most number of goals among the top ten sides.
In fact they are the only team in that part of the table to conceded more than they scored up until now.
Swansea vs Bristol City: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Robins remain unbeaten in three matches against this opposition.
- They have three wins and a defeat in five previous clashes against the Swans.
- All five of those games had less than 2.5 goals in total.
- The visitors have won on both their recent trips to this ground.
- All recent five head to head matches at this ground had fewer than 2.5 goals too.
Swansea vs Bristol City: Prediction
Bristol finally broke their winning drought on the road after five matches. The latest win over Middlesbrough was actually expected. But it would not be easy for them to win this one even though they have a winning streak going on.
The hosts have lost two recent home games, one against the toppers and the other against Luton Town who are in the red zone.
They are inconsistent as we can see but they have enough power to draw against the Robins. So I think we can expect a draw this weekend just like the reverse fixture.
As we have seen throughout this season, the visitors have a poor defence. They have conceded in all three recent matches in which they remained unbeaten.
Even though the hosts are having problems in scoring at home, I think they could get one in this matchup. They have scored against teams like Nottingham Forest and Millwall recently too. So I am backing a draw with goals at both ends of the field.
