Bristol City vs Swansea City Match Analysis and Prediction

Swansea City, full of confidence after a win in the South Wales derby, will travel over the border on Saturday to face Bristol City in the Championship with kickoff at 2 pm.

After defeating West Bromwich Albion 2-0 the week before, Bristol City could not find the back of the net against Reading and goalkeeper Joe Lumley wondered if he had even been in a game.

Nigel Pearson may have expected his side to push on, but as has been the case on so many occasions this year, they stumbled and produced a performance that left the former Leicester City boss frustrated.

After Burnley’s goalscoring antics, the team lost its title as early-season top scorers and now can only better Hull City’s defensive record. This statistic will not mix well with any ambitions of a playoff push in their eighth-straight season in the Championship.

Last season, many observers were sceptical about projections for this campaign that came out of the Swansea City camp.

But now the whole league is beginning to see why those insiders were so confident. In their last outing, Martin’s team defeated fierce rivals Cardiff City, continuing a streak of seven consecutive victories that has catapulted them into second place in the Championship table.

Bristol City Team News

Bristol City manager Nigel Pearson will be without defensive options, Kal Naismith and Tomas Kalas. This is when they host Swansea City on Saturday, with the players suffering from calf injuries that will not help his side as they attempt to stop conceding a league-leading number of goals.

Swansea Team News

Swansea midfielder Joe Allen is set to be sidelined until after the World Cup. The Wales international has to see a specialist for a hamstring injury picked up in the victory over Hull in September.

Prediction and Odds

A leaky defence hinders Bristol City’s start to this Championship campaign, rather than their attacking ability.

  • Away Win
  • Both Teams to Score
  • Goals Over 2.5
