Match Summary

One to Watch: Andreas Weimann

Andreas Weimann has made a stunning start to his Bristol City career, after joining the club from Derby County in the summer. He only managed five goals in 40 Championship appearances last season, but has already matched that total in the first six games of this campaign. 

The 27-year-old Austrian has never scored more than seven goals in a season, which he managed in the Premier League with Aston Villa during the 2012/13 campaign. He’s well on the way to smashing that record, and is 11/2 for the first goal on Saturday with 888sport.

Lee Johnson has no injuries or suspensions to worry about coming into Saturday’s game. With a fully-fit squad to choose from, that could certainly have an effect on your football prediction for this match.

Bristol City vs Sheffield United Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Sixth-placed Bristol City take on third-placed Sheffield United at Ashton Gate this weekend

This Championship preview pits sixth against third, as Bristol City welcome Sheffield United to Ashton Gate. All four of the most recent meetings between the sides have ended in away wins, which is something to consider in the football predictions for this game. 

Bristol are 17/10 in your football betting tips for the weekend, as they go in search of their fourth victory on the bounce. The Robins have recorded impressive wins against Queens Park Rangers, Swansea City and Blackburn Rovers in recent weeks, and Lee Johnson will hope the international break doesn’t have an impact on his team’s momentum. 

Sheffield United are 15/8 in your Championship predictions, so they’re the slight underdogs. The Blades are on a run of four successive wins in the league, as they look to improve on last season’s 10th-placed finish. They finished six points off the play-off places last term, and need to pick up more points on the road this time round. Chris Wilder’s side lost 11 times away from home last year, but Ashton Gate is a tough place to come. 

The draw is 27/11 and could prove to be one of the best football betting tips for this game between two evenly matched sides. The last 10 meetings between the two have produced a winner, with the last stalemate a goalless draw at Ashton Gate back in 2008. Another one of those is priced at 11/1 in your football score predictions. 

As well as Andreas Weimann, Billy Sharp, David McGoldrick and Leon Clarke are also priced at 11/2 for the first goal on Saturday. The latter is an injury doubt, but will be a threat if he’s fit after scoring twice against Bristol last season – including the opener at Ashton Gate. 

Predicted Score: Bristol City 2 - 2 Sheffield United
