Bristol City – Leeds United, Championship Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BRISTOL - LEEDS
Bristol City were exactly 4 points out of the top 6, but even finished 8th. To try to bridge this gap, they have attracted some very good young and generally unnecessary Chelsea players, but they have the qualities. Kalas is the big transfer in defense, and in total the team spent about 15 million pounds on new additions and split for 13 million with left-back Kelly alone, who moved to Bournemouth.
Bielsa remained in Leeds despite the failure of the playoffs. He has another chance, but rather than the club management, they have no illusions that they can attract a much stronger coach from him. The weird thing is that they didn’t even reach the final at Wembley last season after finishing 3rd and dropping out of Lampard’s rams. The big transfer was Costa from Wolves, who comes on loan. Clarke was sold to Tottenham and immediately hired again.
Expert view : Both teams did well in the friendlies, scoring a lot of goals or at least being consistent in that aspect. Leeds is a light favorite because of its class and experience, and because of Bielsa, of course. On the other hand, Bristol almost didn’t miss to score at home during the last campaign. We do not think that it is particularly reasonable for this match to be signaled, and therefore our tip is for goals – BTTS at 1.75.
Bristol didn’t score in only 5 games at home in Championship last season
Leeds have missed to score only one time in their last 8 away games against Bristol
