Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic Brighton secured automatic promotion to the Premier League and, as a result, coach Chris Hughton did not field the best possible side against Norwich City at the weekend. The Seagulls suffered a 2-0 loss to the Canaries at Carrow Road, but they will play in the English top flight next season and nothing else matters. Brighton welcome Bristol City at their American Express Community Stadium in their last home game of the season and they certainly want to give fans yet another reason for celebration. Thanks to a 3-2 win over Barnsley the Robins secured the Championship survival and that is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Anthony Knockaert has been producing terrific showings this season and we predict that he will prove a handful for the opposition back-line in Saturday's football game.
Highlighted Player (Niki Maenpaa):
Niki Maenpaa played for the likes of Kasiysi and HJK during his youth career and in 2003 he joined RC Lens II. The Goalkeeper who was born on 23 January 1985 in Espoo, Finland made 17 appearances for Lens II and in 2006 he signed a contract with Dutch side FC Den Bosch. Niki Maenpaa made 67 league appearances for Den Bosch until 2009 and then he joined Willem II on a free transfer. After playing 18 matches for the club (league) he joined AZ Alkmaar in October, 2011, but he was a third-choice goalkeeper in the 2011/2012 Eredivisie campaign. Maenpaa was eager to leave the club at the end of the season and he turned his dream into reality on 29 May, 2012 as he signed a three-year deal with VVV-Venlo. After his contract with Venlo expired Niki Maenpaa joined Brighton in July, 2015 on a free transfer. The goalkeeper made his Finland debut on 2 June 2008 in a friendly match against Belarus. Maenpaa made three appearances for the Finnish national team in the 2016 World Cup qualifiers.
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.
