Our prediction for this match:
BCFC Training Ground will host Saturday’s friendly between Bristol City and Milton Keynes Dons, who face each other for the first time since February 2016. Back then Bristol City defeated MK Dons in the Championship clash, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. The Robins kicked off pre-season with a goalless draw with Celtic, with the team sharing the spoils with Portsmouth (3-3) in their second warm-up game.
Veteran attacker Chris Martin, who found the net in the 3-3 draw with the Pompey, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts. The League One side, on the other hand, did well to beat King’s Lynn 3-1 in their first game of the pre-season. Considering that both sides will be with guards down in Saturday’s friendly, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Bristol City defenders should have Scott Twine at bay as he scored a brace in the triumph over King’s Lynn.
