EFL Championship – Bristol City v Swansea City Betting Tips19 August 2021
Ashton Gate will be the venue as Bristol City host Swansea City in the English Football League Championship fourth round.
Bristol City have had a rather dismal start to their 2021/22 English Football League Championship campaign, drawing 1-1 against Blackpool at home and losing 2-1 away to Middlesbrough, rendering them eighteenth in the league table.
Bristol City have also fallen out of the English Football League Cup in the first round having lost away to Forest Green on penalties after the match finished 2-2. This game had a thrilling ending as Forest Green’s Regan Henry equalised in the 96th minute to earn the penalty shootout before going on to win it.
Swansea City haven’t had a great start to their Championship season either, losing 2-1 away to Blackburn on the opening day and only managing a point against Sheffield United at the Liberty Stadium.
However, Swansea did manage to win 3-0 in their preliminary EFL Cup round away at the Madejski Stadium against Reading, earning them a home fixture against Plymouth Argyle in the next round.
Head to head, Bristol City got the best of Swansea overall last season, winning 3-1 away at the Liberty Stadium after a 1-1 draw at Ashton gate earlier in the season.

The odds for the match result and both teams to score are much more tempting given the reliance of at least three goals to be scored in the game. However, since the last match between these two sides finished 3-1 and the game before was a 1-1 draw, both teams to score isn’t particularly farfetched – but which way will it go?:
