Bristol City vs Leeds United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture pits two sides flying high in the top six of the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Bristol City continued their strong recent form with a draw at home to Burton last time out though they will have been disappointed not to take all three in a game that the expected goals data shows that they dominated. Leeds are in a mini slump after they suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Reading in their last game. It was a bit of hit and run job as the Royals created little compared to their hosts but still snuck out with all three points. The meeting between these two sides at Ashton Gate last season ended in a home victory with the Robins coming out on top 1-0. Home advantage is key in their meetings with four of their last five being won by the hosts.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to get a handle on this poor run for Leeds do you continue to back against them or is expecting a promotion candidate to lose a fourth straight too much to ask. It is a tricky match to predict and for me I will look at other markets than the match betting. The Robins have kept a clean-sheet in three of their last four fixtures while Leeds have failed to net in their last two and three of the last five. It could be worth a value bet then on the hosts to stop the visitors from netting here. Jonathan Leko has been reduced to substitute appearances in recent weeks but with Niclas Eliasson disappointing at the weekend Leko could come into the starting 11. He is a player of huge potential and if he gets the nod to start looks worth a play in the goalscorer markets. The worry of his inclusion leads me to suggesting the anytime market rather than first but if you can wait until team-news is in I could not put you off an opening scorer bet also.

Bristol City to keep a clean-sheet

Jonathan Leko to score any time.

Bristol City Team News

Milan Djuric is nearing in on a return following an absence with a groin issue.

Leeds United Preview

It is now three straight defeats for Leeds who have slide down to sixth and need to arrest this slump in form. Their run does not get any easier with five of their next six against top 14 outfits and the other against a Brentford side who are in good form. Away from Elland Road, they have now lost each of their last three after winning their opening three on the road. A lack of goals has become an issue on their travels with just one in their last three. The first goal is key as in their last five victories they have netted the first goal while in their last four defeats they have conceded first. 61% of their goals scored have come in the first-half and 33% in the opening 30 minutes.
