Our football match prediction:
Wolverhampton will be looking to keep their fourth consecutive clean sheet in all competitions when they square off against Bristol City at their Molineux Stadium. The Wolves recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Millwall at the weekend and thanks to the triumph they climbed to third place in the Championship standings. Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops are seen as main favourites to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League, but the season is quite long and they need to leave their hearts on the field in every single match if they are to return to the English elite division. Bristol City have been in a fine form of late and they will be aiming to build on a 1-0 win at Reading when they face Wolverhampton in Tuesday’s football match. Seeing that the Wolves defeated the Robins in each of their last four meetings at Molineux Stadium, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts in this one.

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.
