Bristol City vs Birmingham City: Betting Tips

Bristol City have won only one point from the last three matches in English tier-two division. Poor form and results have pushed them out of the playoffs zone, but there is still time to fix things. The Robins are only four points behind 6th placed Middlesbrough at the moment, and in order to stay in the race, they will have to beat Birmingham City on Tuesday night. Even though the visiting squad is very close to the relegation zone, bookmakers have been careful with the odds. Home win is currently priced at 1/1 (2.00).

Home coach Lee Johnson just can’t be satisfied with the efficiency of his strikers in the last month. Bristol City have scored only three goals in the last five encounters. Famara Diedhiou is topping the teams goalscoring charts (11 goals in 27 appearances), but wasn’t part of the main roster against Millwall last weekend. The Robins have lost that match easily (2-0 FT).

Form is definitely on the side of visiting squad. Birmingham City finally got out of the danger zone. They collected fantastic 10 points from the last four matches. Besides that, Gary Monk’s squad has kept three clean sheets in those encounters. I feel they are the ones having the advantage here, not the hosts.

As for the sidelined players, home coach won’t be able to count on Matty Taylor and Hordur Magnusson (both injured). Birmingham City’s Che Adams is serving one match suspension.
