City is on a scoring streak as of now, with them getting on the scoresheet in their last five matches in a row. Providing them with even more motivation will be the fact that Brentford has conceded at least one goal in their last 14 games consecutively. Bristol City, with their home advantage, will be the likely scorer of the first goal.
These two teams usually show a trend of getting into the groove once the match has been underway at least for the first half hour. As a result, most matches involving these sides had its first half kind of uneventful. The trend will likely extend this weekend also. There’s little chance that the first half will have more than one goal. Four of the last five h2h games had a 1-0 scoreline. Everything points to a match with few first-half goals.
Here Bristol City will be the bookies’ favorite to come out with the win owing to their home advantage and higher standing in the league table.
