Bristol City vs Leeds Match Preview and Prediction
Bristol City vs Leeds: Bristol City’s packed schedule continues this Friday night. In the opening game of Game Week No. 30 of the Championship, they host Leeds at Elland Road. This will be their third match since the FA Cup’s fourth-round goalless draw against Nottingham Forest on Friday.
The Robins’ recent performance is evident in the fact that they limited a Premier League rival to only two shots on goal just seven days ago. These days, it’s incredibly difficult to break down Bristol City.
They had won their last three games in all competitions coming into their matchup with Coventry on Tuesday. In the last seven games in all competitions, Bristol City has not scored three goals or more.
It will be fascinating to see how the tough defensive line of the Robins handles the Leads’ potent offensive unit. The Peacocks have won four straight league games, which is an incredible run. They now lie in second place in the championship rankings, just two points behind Ipswich Town.
Leeds is currently vying for automatic promotion. With four straight league victories, Daniel Farke’s team is at least headed in the right direction, but they still have a mountain to climb to take it. Leeds and Plymouth Argyle played in the FA Cup last weekend, and while Leeds deserved to win, they were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw.
On that particular occasion, the Peacocks fired eight shots on target, but it was insufficient to win. Although they will be playing their third game in seven days, Bristol City have significantly improved their defensive performances recently.

Leeds has won four straight league games, and they are in a fantastic run of form. Three goals or more have not been scored in any of Bristol City’s last seven games. Leeds also won seven of the previous eight head-to-head matches and drew one versus Bristol City
In past meetings between the two teams, Leeds United has always been the stronger team. Out of the previous eight games versus the Robins, they had won seven and drawn one.
The run includes Leeds’ 2-1 victory at Elland Road in October of last year. Out of the five previous head-to-head matches between these rivals, just two resulted in three goals or more.
Who will win the match between Bristol City and Leeds?
Although it seems doubtful that Bristol City would win with just one goal against this Leeds United squad, we believe that the club should be able to score. At the end of ninety minutes, Leeds United emerged victorious by a slim score of 1-2. I anticipate this with interest.
