Sheffield Utd take on the visitors Bristol City at “Bramall Lane” in the matchday 21 of the English Championship. The game will be played in Sheffield on Friday, December 8th.
Sheffield Utd have lost their play in the recent clashes. The team has been unable to win across three latest encounters in which it earned 4:5 defeat from Fulham, 1:1 draw against Birmingham and lost 1:3 to Millwall. Chris Wilder’s side cannot take their previous pace: last year “The Blades” performed in the League One which England’s third football division and have made a good start in the Championship in this season but then slowed down a bit. With 20 rounds behind, the club is currently sharing the third-fourth places in the standings with Bristol City, having gained 37 points with 33-24 goal difference. Sheffield Utd picked up 22 points with 19 goals for and 10 goals against in 10 encounters played at their own turf.

In their turn, Bristol City beat Hull City 3:2 as well as Middlesbrough 2:1 in two latest battles. Last season “The Robins” were considered to be the outsiders of the Championship while in this season they are currently sharing the third-fourth positions in the Championship table with upcoming hosts, having got 37 points with 32-21 goal difference. Lee Johnson’s side collected 19 points with 17 goals for and 11 goals against in 10 away clashes. The unbeaten run of Bristol City on the road counts for 10 encounters already.
Both rivals show strong performance in this season and the opponents are worth each other which can be seen from the Championship’s table. I believe that the forthcoming fight will be interesting, but with not many goals scored in it.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
