Our prediction for this Championship match:
Bristol City and Cardiff City take on each other at Ashton Gate Stadium in the Championship round 28. Bristol City aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Derby County and Brentford, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Saturday’s football game. The Robins produce much better showings at home than on the travels, but they are still seen as underdogs in the Ashton Gate Stadium clash.
Given the number of absentees in the home team, we are not tempted to put our money on the Robins. The Bluebirds, on the other hand, produced a fine display in a 1-1 draw with Millwall, with the team failing to turn their dominance into victory. Since Bristol City head into the match with a severely-weakened squad, we are tempted to put our money on the Welsh outfit.
Highlighted Player (Adam Nagy):
Adam Nagy is a Hungarian footballer who plays for Serie A side Bologna as a midfielder. Nagy began his professional career at Ferencvaros and he made 26 appearances in the league for the Hungarian club. The 178-cm-tall player impressed at Euro 2016 and, as a result, Bologna chiefs decided to sign him in the summer transfer window.
Adam Nagy joined the Serie A club on July 14, 2016 and he has been playing for the Rossoblu ever since. The Hungary international quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Bologna and in December 2016 he was voted the team’s Player of the Month.
Speaking of his international career, Adam Nagy played for Hungary U20 team at the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup and he made his senior debut for the Hungarian national team on September 7, 2015 in a 1-1 draw with Northern Ireland. His main position is defensive midfielder, but he is capable of playing a central midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Cardiff):
Cardiff City are a Welsh football club that compete in the English second tier (Championship). In 2009 they moved from Ninian Park to Cardiff City Stadium, the venue that officially holds 33,280 spectators.
The Bluebirds played their first ever Premier League match on 18 August, 2013, but they were beaten by West Ham United (0-2) on their debut in the English top flight. However, a week later Fraizer Campbell (two goals) and Aron Gunnarson helped Cardiff City record their first ever win in the Premier League.
The Bluebirds outplayed Manchester City back then, but they eventually dropped to the Championship at the end of the season. Fellow Welsh outfit Swansea City are considered Cardiff’s fiercest rivals and the two teams take on each other in the South Wales derby.
The colour of Cardiff City’s home kit is blue, whilst they wear red shirts and shorts when playing on the travels.
