Our prediction for this Championship match:
Bristol City will be aiming to kick off the new Championship campaign in style when they host Coventry City at their Ashton Gate Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Robins proved their worth in their Carabao Cup opener against Exeter, and they are seen as favourites to beat Coventry in the opening game of the new Championship season as well.
Bristol City are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but you should bear in mind that there will be no spectators at Ashton Gate Stadium due to the fierce of coronavirus spread. The Sky Blues, on the other hand, impressed in the League One last term, with the team finishing the process in top position in the standings. Coventry City have big ambitions for their return to the English second tier, but seeing that they are not regarded as good travellers, home win should be considered.
