Our prediction for this Championship match:
Bristol City and Swansea City go head to head at Ashton Gate on day 7 of the 2020/21 Championship campaign. The Robins aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Middlesbrough, with the team eyeing their fifth win of the season. Bristol City made a promising start to the season, but they could be low on confidence following their first defeat of the new campaign. The likes of Baker and Williams are both likely to miss the Swansea City game through injury.
The Swans, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Coventry City in midweek, with Andre Ayew extending his goalscoring run. The Ghana international is not getting any older, and, no doubt, all eyes will be on him when the two teams face each other at Ashton Gate. A close encounter is on the horizon, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Midfielder George Byers is out of contention through injury for the visitors.
