Wigan Athletic vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Friday, 21 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: The DW Stadium (Wigan).
Wigan Athletic and Bristol City are going to open the action of the English Championship 9th round with a Friday evening clash.
Home side got promoted from the League One and they are enjoying a very good start of the new campaign. They are sitting on the 8th place, however they have the same number of points as Sheffield United who are on the last position that secures the participation in the promotion playoffs.
Wigan Athletic are playing excellent at their ground as they allowed just a point to their opponents, but they need to start winning more points at away pitches as well. Paul Cook’s side is producing a fair amount of goals, while their defence could have been a bit tighter.
The visitors are one point ahead of their rivals and their streak of four straight victories has been interrupted in the latest round as they lost away to WBA.
Andreas Weimann and the lads are playing very well in front of the oppositions’ goal, but their defence allowed too many goals so far. The latest defeat was their first and only one when playing away from home and Bristol City are the second best visiting team in the competition. If they manage to get back on winning track soon, away side is going to challenge one of the top six spots.
Wigan Athletic vs Bristol City: Head-to-head
- Both sides have been equally successful in their head to head clashes as they managed to snatch three victories each.
- Bristol City celebrated twice in a row, but prior to that, Wigan Athletic had the same streak.
- Their clashes are not too much efficient as the crowd is able to see around two goals per match in average.
Wigan Athletic vs Bristol City: Prediction
This is going to be a pretty tight clash as both sides are going to search for the positive result which should keep them in the top half of the table. However, we believe the hosts are a bit closer to the victory and the points should stay on The DW Stadium.
Although these two teams have been involved in high scoring matches so far in the season, their encounters haven’t been too efficient. We are going to follow the tradition of their clashes and this one should stay under 2.5 margin.
