Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
A place in the fourth round of the FA Cup will be at stake when Bristol City and Shrewsbury Town face each other at Ashton Gate in what is expected to be a very exciting game. The Robins’ main goal is to secure promotion to the Premier League, but they have big ambitions for the 2019/2020 FA Cup season as well.
The Championship side gave fans some cheer at the weekend, with the team rolling over Luton Town 3-0, and they are surely capable of finding the net in their FA Cup opener. Considering that the Shrews have been in a fine form of late as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. You should bear in mind that in their last meeting in a competitive match Bristol City recorded a 3-2 win over Shrewsbury Town.

Adam Nagy is a Hungarian footballer who plays for Serie A side Bologna as a midfielder.

Highlighted Team (Shrewsbury):
Based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Shrewsbury Town are a professional club that play home games at New Meadow stadium, the venue which was opened in 2007 and has the capacity of 10,361. Shrewsbury Town were founded back in 1886, with some reports indicating the club was established at the Lion Hotel.
The Blues wear blue shirts with yellow stripe and blue shorts when playing at home, whilst the colour of their away kit is purple. Mickey Brown holds the club record for most appearances as he played 190 games for the club, scoring 9 goals in the league. Both Wolverhampton and Walsall are regarded as the club’s fiercest rivals, but there have always been fireworks in matches between Shrewsbury Town and Hereford United as well.
The two teams face each other in the “A49 derby” and it has to be noted that the Blues have built rivalries with Chester City and Wrexham as well.
