Bristol also has some chances to get into the playoff zone, which is five points ahead. To do this, the team needs to win in the remaining matches, but the Robins have problems with it. The team didn’t gain victories in the last seven rounds and lost in five of them. At the same time, Bristol scored regularly even in lost matches. In total, the team scored 53 goals in 39 games, and it is even more than that of the upcoming opponent.
Nottingham is very good in the attack (52 goals scored), but it is rather unstable in defense (40 goals conceded). It conceded even from outsiders who take 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd places in the standings. Bristol left the field without a goal scored in only three out of 20 away games. After quarantine, the teams are not in good shape and make many mistakes, and it leads to a relative abundance of goals scored in almost every match. This game will not be an exception. The Foresters need to strengthen their position, so they will attack a lot, but we are likely to see many mistakes in defense. Bristol is persistent in the attack and scores almost everyone in the tournament, including both championship leaders. Most likely, it will manage to upset Nottingham’s goalkeeper. The Robins scored in seven of the last 10 head-to-head meetings.
Prediction for the match: Bristol City to score over 0.5 goals
