Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football game at Ashton Gate Stadium pits together Bristol City and Peterborough United, the two bottom-table sides. The Robins did well to secure the Championship survival, while the Posh will find it hard to avoid the relegation. Since Peterborough United have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Bristol City, we predict that the hosts will have a number of opportunities to score on the break.
All Semenyo, Williams, Kalas, King, and Tanner should miss out through injuries for the home team. The Posh are ten points behind the safe zone, and given the lack of confidence in their dressing room, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on Bristol City. All Steven Benda, Joel Randall, Oliver Norburn, and Dan Butler are out of contention through injuries for the visiting side.

The left-footed defender played 115 games for Aston Villa in the league and it has to be noted that he scored only goal for the club during his spell at Villa Park.

After ending his loan spell with the Robins, he signed a permanent deal with the club on July 28, 2017 for an undisclosed fee.

Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
