Bristol City vs West Brom: Top free betting tips
Round 6 of EFL Championship fixtures Bristol City and West Bromwich fighting against each other at Ashton Gate Stadium on Saturday, 16 September. The Robins are fresh from a league victory against Swansea whereas West Brom tasted defeat against Huddersfield in the second division.
Match result prediction: Bristol City to win
Bristol City have found two victories in the opening five league outings, along with two draws and a defeat. West Brom has also won two of the last four matches in the EFL Championship while ending one in a draw. But the Baggies have gone undefeated in the last five competitive road fixtures, losing four of them. Additionally, Bristol has also won two of the recent three H2Hs against West Bromwich Albion. Given these statistics, we back the Robins to have the upper hand in front of the home crowd and take three points.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Four of the previous five H2H meetings between these two sides at Ashton Gate Stadium have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. West Bromwich has found the back of the net ten times in the last five EFL Championship outings. Bristol City have secured an average of scoring only one goal per game in the same duration. But they would be confident to create scoring opportunities against a poor defensive side. The Baggies have allowed ten goals at the back in five rounds of the league, keeping zero clean sheets. Therefore, we expect the teams to share a total of at least three goals.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Bristol City
After a wait of four league games, Bristol City scored more than one goal in the previous fixture against Swansea. But the Robins have also thrashed multiple goals in three of the recent four H2Hs against West Bromwich, conceding only four goals in total. On the other hand, the Baggies scored just one goal in each of their last three matches away from The Hawthorns. West Brom has also leaked multiple goals in four of the opening five matches in the EFL Championship. Based on these statistics, we expect to see a 2-1 victory for Bristol in this encounter.
