Swansea vs Bristol City
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 25th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
Swansea takes on Bristol City as these two teams haven’t met each other in 7 years.
Swansea are already placing their bid for promotion. They are sitting still unbeaten on 6th place. The Swans managed a good start even with the tough fixtures in the beginning. Preston, Sheffield United and Leeds are all candidates for top 6 while Birmingham is a tough opponent when playing at St Andrews.
Swansea were involved in the most anticipated game on Tuesday. They hosted leaders Leeds United and tried everything to get an early victory over a promotion rival. Still the visitors didn’t give up and although Swansea took the lead twice the final outcome was a draw.
Bristol Started this season slowly. They had problem in the whole second part of last campaign which carried on into this one. Still the team is not far from the playoffs and with a bit more stability Johnson’s boys may put up a serious fight for top 6 finish.
Last round The Robins took their first victory this season against struggling QPR. Andy Weimann was the star netting 2 goals following Taylor’s opener. Bristol showed cutting edge there but the team still needs to prove themselves against a tougher opponent.
