Match: Bristol City vs. Newcastle Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Saturday, 20 August, 2016
Start time: 15:00 UK
In one of the most interesting matches in the 4th round in Championship we will see Bristol City against Newcastle.
Bristol was so solid in the first 2 rounds after winning them both. In these 2 cases, Bristol City beat with 2:1, first against Wigan Athletic and later against Burton Albion. They were weak in their third try when they feel the first problems through the season. Norwich was much better and this thing explains the final result – 1:0 for “The canaries”.
After the relegation Newcastle was felt asleep, dreaming about the comeback in the Premier league. They showed bad football and the results were the same. In the first try, Newcastle lost against Fulham in one of the most boring games through the season. There were only a few chances for goal and a lot of tackles, which stopped both teams from showing their best. After that Newcastle lost at home against Huddersfield Town with 1:2, but they found themselves in the 3rd round, when Reading felt how great Newcastle is. “Magpies” won after 4:1 and they showed amazing football.
They will need right that – attacking style, great control over the ball and few goals to continue the winning streak.
Bristol City will be a much bigger challenge for Newcastle and “The Magpies” will have few problems in this game. They will continue to be that strong in forward and they will score for 3rd time out of last 4 games. In 4 out of last 5 times, this rivalry finished with “both teams to score” and it’s explainable why we will try that streak to continue.
