England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 01 November 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium
The Championship meeting at Ashton Gate Stadium on Saturday sees home side Bristol City playing visiting rivals Sheffield United.
Sheffield United has been one of the best teams in the English second divisions for the past several years. They have even made it to the top flight a couple of times in the past five years.
The past season saw them finishing at fifth in the league standings. As a result, they battled in the Championship play-offs before entering into the pre-season friendlies prior to the new campaign.
After losing the opening day’s fixture to Watford, Sheffield United made it six consecutive games without a defeat at the start of the 2022/23 English Championship campaign.
Although there has been a dip in form recently, they have bounced back to positive consistency with the win in the last game. They are currently unbeaten in two games.
Meanwhile, Bristol City have returned back to the slow start they had in the beginning of the season. They are currently on a two-fixture winless streak in the league.
As a result, their position got pushed down to the bottom half of the league standings, seven points away from their Tuesday’s opposition.
They have a defensive side that has leaked more goals than their offensive side has scored. Such a defensive side will affect their chances of claiming a win.

Bristol City vs Sheffield United Prediction
Robin’s home form is worse than the current overall form. Even at their home stadium, they have little chances of beating fourth-placed Sheffield United.
Oliver McBurnie has managed to score in the last two games which Sheffield United gained the much needed consistency. Bristol’s current defense will surely give chances for him to score goals.
