Wycombe take on the visitors Bristol City in the 1/32 finals of English Football League Cup. The match will be played on Wednesday, August 24th at Adams Park (High Wycombe).
Wycombe lost their ground this season. The Blues showed themselves at the beginning of the century in the cup format. They played in the semi-finals of both of these tournaments played in England. But in general, this is a team that only sometimes wanders even to the level of the Championship. Recently there was another attempt, but now the team is again playing in Ligue 1. There was a chance for a new rise, but everyone in the 2021/2022 season ended in 6th place. Now the team has noticeably rolled back, having failed the start in the new draw. Yes, they started with a crushing victory over Burton, but then it was followed by defeats. The exception was the cup 2-1 at Northampton. Of course, at home Wanderers plan to achieve a new positive result.

Bristol City don't shine even at Championship level. The Robins returned from Ligue 1 only in 2015. There were certain chances to aim for promotion to the Premier League. Yes, and in the cup several times to climb far, up to the semi-finals. But in general, the team is quite modest, even at the level of its current division. Last season, for example, Nigel Pearson's wards finished in 17th position. And now it all started with a couple of defeats in a row, and only after that, in mid-August, it turned out to get in shape. By the way, the turning point, as it happened, was the previous cup round. There it turned out not only to beat Coventry on its field, but also staged a rout. The hero was a young, 20-year-old striker Conway, who scored a double. For all his infrequent appearances in the Championship, he was able to score all the same 2 goals! Will his mentor put him in the starting lineup now?
After 2016, the clubs played against each other only in the Championship season before last. Then the teams exchanged home victories. Both Wycombe and Bristol City got off to a weak start in their respective divisions. Cup - a way to rehabilitate in front of the fans. Waiting for "total over 2.5 goals".
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
