Bristol City vs Sunderland Predictions

  • Bristol City have drawn three of their last four home Championship matches, two of which finished 1-1.
  • Sunderland drew five of their last eight away games in League One last season.
  • Sunderland drew their opening Championship game of the season 1-1.

Semenyo may be the missing piece for Pearson’s puzzle

Bristol City found the formula to win home games towards the end of last season, but newly-promoted Sunderland can claim a share of the spoils at Ashton Gate this weekend. The Robins won five and drew three of their last ten on home soil last term to pull well clear of the relegation zone when the chips were down.

But Nigel Pearson’s side couldn’t hold off Hull City’s late rally on Humberside last Saturday and will begin this game with no points on the board. They are missing the presence of Antoine Semenyo right now and he was a key figure in their late upturn last season.

His absence leaves them short of a player who can make something happen on his own and, although Andreas Weimann got his customary goal last weekend, he relies on service.

Neil knows his way around a 1-1 draw

Sunderland began well at home to Coventry, but fell deeper and deeper as they got tired before the visitors claimed a deserved 1-1 draw. Alex Neil’s reputation as a pragmatic manager goes before him, so its no surprise to see the Black Cats drew a high proportion of their away games last term.

The draw looks a standout option in match result betting with City also playing out three such stalemates in their last four home games of 2021-22. A 1-1 draw is the preferred correct score play as Sunderland signed off on five of those scorelines last season.
