Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a hard-fought win over Birmingham City, Wigan Athletic take on Bristol City at their DW Stadium. The Latics are desperate to escape the relegation zone and we predict that they will fight tooth and nail in Saturday’s football match against the Robins. Wigan have drawn three games in a row on home soil, but we believe that they are capable of starting a new winning run on Matchday 37. Their next rivals Bristol City sit in the bottom three as well and considering that they are on a seven-game winless run in the Championship, the visitors are unlikely to grab something from the relegation six-pointer. In their last meeting at the DW Stadium 15 years ago Wigan recorded a 2-0 win over Bristol City and we believe that the history is going to repeat itself. The likes of Will Grigg and Ryan Tunnicliffe both missed the Birmingham City game with injuries, but the duo could recover in time to face the Robins.

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.
