Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Bristol City and Wolverhampton take on each other at Ashton Gate Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sunday’s program. The Robins have been in a splendid form of late and they are obviously determined to return to the Premier League. The Robins look unstoppable at the moment and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in the FA Cup clash against Wolverhampton. The Wolves booked their place in the last 16 by beating Shrewsbury Town in the replay at their Molineux Stadium. The Premier League side aim to go all the way in the FA Cup this season, but beating Bristol City on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Ashton Gate Stadium and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in the 5th round of the FA Cup.
