Bristol City have made a flying start to the campaign and will move into the automatic promotion positions with a win here. They made a bright start last term but it was around this time that their form dipped and a long, dark winter began which saw them fall from play-off hopefuls to relegation candidates. They’ll be desperate to avoid a repeat this time around and with struggling Burton the visitors, they ought to deliver the goods again here.
Burton come into this match following back-to-back 4-0 home defeats. While they were games against strong sides, the manner of those defeats was worrying, with both games effectively over by the interval. They’ve had a fortnight to work on a few things but the reality is that this Burton team is just short on quality and will find it very hard to beat the drop this season.
They won’t be expected to get anything here and the way Bristol City have been playing it looks unlikely. The Robins have lost just one of their 14 competitive games this term and have won four of the last five heading into this. They’ve also won 5 of their 7 home games so they will really fancy this.
They’ve had a host of players find the net with surprising regularity of late with Bobby Reid and Aden Flint having netted 10 times between them already this season. The duo contributed just 8 goals in all of last term. Meanwhile after a slow start, Famara Deidhiou has really settled into life at Ashton Gate and the Senegalese striker has smashed in goals in 5 of his last 6 appearances. That makes backing Diedhiou to score anytime at 5/4 look good here.
Bristol City are the league’s 2nd highest scorers with 1.82 goals per game. They should have too much overall firepower for the Brewers and backing Bristol City to Win & Over 2.5 goals at Evens looks to offer value.
Burton have already conceded four or more goals on five separate occasions this season in all competitions. With the Robins scoring freely, backing Bristol City to score over 2.5 goals at 8/5 also could be worth a punt.
