Bristol City vs Leeds Preview
Lee Johnson’s side just missed out on the play-offs last season and their home form was to blame for that. They are set to lose Adam Webster in a big money move to Premier League side Brighton and that will be a big blow to their promotion chances. Bristol City were thrashed 5-0 by Crystal Palace in their final pre-season friendly of the season which will be a concern, however, they have also won four games this summer including a 4-3 win over Forest Green Rovers.
Leeds missed out on automatic promotion in the 2018/19 season then blew their play-off tie against Derby after being in control after the first leg. They are set to lose Kemar Roofe to Anderlecht and it’s unlikely he’ll be in the squad for this game. Leeds haven’t really strengthened since last season and that will be a concern, however, Bielsa agreeing to star is a huge plus. Helder Costa is an eye-catching loan signing though and he should thrive in the Sky Bet Championship.
Bristol City vs Leeds Betting Tips
Goals look a certainty in this match, especially when you look at Bristol City’s results in pre-season. Leeds have also been involved in some high scoring fixtures including a 5-0 win over York City and 4-0 loss to Manchester United. Leeds play an attacking style of football and that usually leads to goals at both ends of the pitch. The same can be said for Bristol City on the whole and if they start their season like they did 12 months ago, they’ll be towards the top of the table in the first few months.
Leeds will want to forget about the disappointment of last season and get off to a winning start here and even without Roofe, they should be able to. It may be a close game though and so we’re going for a 2-1 Leeds victory in our correct score prediction to round off our betting tips. Bamford has been leading the line well through the summer and will need to step up in front of goal this season.
