Our prediction for this match:
The Cherry Red Records Stadium will host Tuesday’s friendly between AFC Wimbledon and Bristol City. The League One side suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Brentford in their first warm-up game and they will be looking to make amends for the defeat when they take on Bristol City in yet another pre-season friendly. The Robins, on the other hand, recorded a historical 14-0 win over Hallen in their first warm-up game, meaning that they are brimming with confidence ahead of the midweek friendly.
The Championship side are determined to make amends for the unsuccessful 2018/2019 season, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the nominal visitors. Austria international Andreas Weimann, who scored a hat-trick in the thrilling victory over Hallen, will be one of the men to keep an eye on in the away team.
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.
