Bristol City vs Sheffield Wed Prediction & Betting tips
Bristol City and Sheffield Wednesday both flew out of the Carabao Cup last week. So the focus is back on the Championship. A preview!
Bristol City’s Carabao Cup adventure has ended in the third round. In the game against Aston Villa, the formation of Dean Holden was already 0-2 behind after fifteen minutes. There were basic places for newcomers Steven Sessegnon and Chris Brunt. Holden mainly showed substitutes against Villa, which made the game look rather difficult. Fifteen minutes before the end, the third goal fell and the curtain fell for Bristol. The focus must now quickly return to the Championship. In the league, The Robins are still without losing points and that series can be continued against Sheffield Wednesday.
Bristol City’s infirmary is very full at the moment. Tomas Kalas has a shoulder injury and will probably be sidelined for a few weeks. Jay Dasilva, Liam Walsh and Joe Morrell also did not recover in time for the duel with The Owls. It is still uncertain whether Joe Williams will be available on Sunday afternoon. The midfielder trained at least again with The Robins last week.
Contrary to the cup match against Aston Villa, Bristol City’s vanguard will likely consist of Nahki Wells and Chris Martin again on Sunday afternoon. In the game won at Stoke City, Wells was responsible for the opening goal on a pass from Martin. Against Aston Villa, Famara Diédhiou and Antoine Semenyo had the opportunity to prove themselves. The duo did not make much of an impression, so they will start on the couch again.
In the cup match against Fulham, Garry Monk changed his team in all places compared to the league match against Watford. The trainer gave Joey Pelupessy a basic place and left Joost van Aken out of the selection. It makes sense that Sheffield Wednesday put little effort into the Carabao Cup. The focus is completely on the Championship. In the league, The Owls are still looking at a negative point balance of -8. The first two matches already yielded four points and Bristol City will also be fought for a good result.
The final score in the match against Fulham was reached after half an hour (2-0). Wednesday was no match for Fulham and could have lost with bigger numbers. The first defeat of the season was booked in London. The first hits were also scored. In the previous four official games, Wednesday kept a clean sheet each time.
Wednesday appears to have a keen interest in Callum Paterson. The Cardiff City forward has played 68 games for The Bluebirds in the past three seasons. The Scottish international seems to be open to a transfer to The Owls. There are rumors about Dominic Iorfa about an upcoming departure from Sheffield Wednesday. Both Watford and an unknown Premier League club want to take over the center-back.
