Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a 5-3 win over Burton Albion, Brentford host Bristol City at their Griffin Park on Matchday 39. The Bees are on the right track to secure the Championship survival, but they have slim chances of booking their place in the play-offs. Anyhow, the triumph at Burton gave them a confidence boost and we predict that the hosts will find the net in Saturday’s football match against Bristol City. Lasse Vibe scored a brace in the victory over the Brewers, meaning that the opposition back-line should have the Denmark international at bay. Against all odds, the Robins rolled over Huddersfield Town in their last league fixture and we are positive that they will extend their goal-scoring run against Brentford. Both teams are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s game at Griffin Park and a lively contest appears on the horizon in this one.

Highlighted Team (Bristol City):
Bristol City are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Bristol. Formed in 1894 the Robins mostly participated in English lower leagues and they have never played in the Premier League. Bristol City’s bitterest rivals are Bristol Rovers and it has to be noted that two teams first met in 1897. Bristol City have outplayed their local rivals on 43 occasions in the Bristol Derby. Cardiff City are regarded as Bristol City’s bitter rivals as well. The Robins play their home games at Ashton Gate, the stadium that was opened in 1887. Bristol City were semi-finalists of the League Cup two times (1970/1971, 1988/1989), with the team making it to the FA Cup final in 1909. The Robins faced Manchester United in the title game, but they failed to upset the English giants in the Crystal Palace clash. It is well known that Bristol City footballers wear red shirts and blue shorts.
