Bristol City vs Aston Villa Prediction 25 August 2017

Tournament: Football League Championship
Location: Ashton Gate Stadium
Match date: 25.08.2017 at 19:45

On August 25 2017 at 19:45 in the upcoming regular game of the fifth matchday of the English Football League Championship at the Ashton Gate Stadium the local Bristol City will play against Aston Villa.

Bristol City made it to the Football League Championship two seasons ago and they managed to stay among the middle-peasants of it. They don’t really seem to be eager to compete for the highest places and promotion. In the previous season Bristol finished the league on the 17th place in the standings 3 points above the relegation zone. As for the current campaign in the national championship, Bristol have already played four games where they won against Barnsley 3:1, lost to Birmingham 2:1 and after that drew Brentford 2:2 and Millwall 0:0.

After the season 2015/16 when Aston Villa finished the Premier League on the last place in the standings the Chinese investors bought the club and promised to take them to the level of the champions. Yet, nothing is actually happening in Aston Villa. They weren’t even competing for the places in the promotion zone in the previous season and only took the 13th place in the standings. As for the current season, Aston Villa don’t seem to be in their best conditions and yet there is some particular progress. In the latest games Aston Villa outplayed Wigan in the Football League Cup and before that won against Norwich 4:2.

The teams only played two games against each other where both teams won at home. In the previous season Aston Villa showed really poor results in the away matches and this tendency continued in the new season too. Anyway, Bristol City are far from Cardiff and Reading who Villa lost to. We think that both teams will manage to score at least once and yet the visitors are more likely to win.
