Match Summary

One to Watch: Fernando Forestieri

Fernando Forestieri has been in fine form for Sheffield Wednesday this season, and scored his third Championship goal of the season in their 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday night.

The 28-year-old managed 12 Championship goals for Sheffield Wednesday last term, and will be looking to better that total during the 2018-19 campaign.

There is no question that Bristol City will have to be aware of the former Italy Under-21 international when the Owls make the trip to Ashton Gate.

Forestieri is 8/1 in the first goalscorer market with bet365, which is certainly worth considering as part of the best football betting tips for the weekend.

Andreas Weimann is expected to keep his spot, however, as the attacker looks to add to the five Championship goals that he has managed this season.

Bristol City vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Bristol City end a four-game winless run this weekend?

Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to move above Bristol City in the Championship table when they make the trip to Ashton Gate this weekend. The Owls sit two places behind 10th-placed Bristol City in the table, but both teams have collected 16 points from their 11 Championship matches this season. Bristol City have not actually won a league match since beating Sheffield United on September 15, while Sheffield Wednesday have drawn each of their last two in the second tier with Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion.

Bristol City are 3/4 as part of the best football betting tips. Lee Johnson’s side will enter the match off the back of a goalless draw away to Rotherham United on Wednesday night. As mentioned above in this Championship preview, the Robins have collected 16 points from their 11 matches this season to sit in 10th position, but have not won a league game since September 15, which is certainly worth considering when analysing the football predictions market.

Sheffield Wednesday are 15/4 to collect all three points from Ashton Gate. The Owls have also managed 16 points in the Championship this season to sit in 12th spot, and have only lost one of their last eight in the league. That said, they have been victorious in just one of their last five matches, which came away to Aston Villa on September 22. Sheffield Wednesday have also won just one of their last five Championship games with Bristol City, and lost 4-0 in the corresponding match last term.

The draw is available at 13/5, and as already mentioned in this Championship preview, the two teams both have 16 points this season. Meanwhile, two of the last three Championship matches between the pair have finished level, including their clash at Ashton Gate in January 2017. The draw is certainly one to consider as part of our football score predictions.

Predicted Score: Bristol City 1 - 1 Sheffield Wednesday
