Bristol City to Win

With just one loss in the last six matches in Championship, Bristol City has been in solid form, even if they only won two of those games. Meanwhile, Blackpool is sitting in the relegation zone and their chances of survival are getting slimmer with each game.

So, the guests will certainly have the bigger motive to get the win here given that Bristol City is pretty much stuck in the middle of the standings. But the guests are also in poor form and that's why our first Bristol City vs Blackpool prediction is for the home team to win the game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The first duel between Bristol City and Blackpool this season ended with six goals being scored and that's the main reason why our second Bristol City vs Blackpool prediction is for the match to go over 2.5 total goals.

That being said, Bristol City averaged 2.46 goals per game in the league so far, while Blackpool averaged 2.40 goals per game in Championship this season, which suggests that the game could go either way. Still, the h2h stats make us confident that we will see goals.

Bristol City – Blackpool Preview: Recent News, Form, and Potential Lineups

You can learn more about both teams right here, including our predicted Bristol City vs Blackpool lineups:

Bristol City

With two wins, three draws, and just one loss in the last six games in Championship, Bristol City has been on a good run lately. However, that didn't do much for them in terms of standings since the team remains in the middle of the table, seemingly too far behind playoffs and too far ahead of the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Joe Williams, Tomas Kalas, Rob Atkinson, Kal Naismith, Tommy Conway, and Ayman Benarous are all out with injuries at this time.

Bristol City Predicted Lineup:

O'Leary – Tanner, Vyner, Pring, Dasilva – James, Weimann – Sykes, Scott, Bell – Wells

Blackpool

Just one win in the last six games in the league, along with two draws and three losses, is far from enough to get Blackpool fans hope that they can stay up this season. The team is currently in the relegation zone and they are six points behind the first team outside of it. With just eleven games left in the season, it doesn't look that good for Blackpool.

When it comes to team news, Blackpool has seven players on their injury list, including Marvin Ekpiteta, Shayne Lavery, and Tom Trybull.

Blackpool Predicted Lineup:

Maxwell – Gabriel, Nelson, Thorniley, Thompson – Dougall, Connolly – Bowler, Carey, Rogers – Yates

Player to Watch: Nahki Wells

Since we can see the home team winning this match, our player to watch for this duel plays for Bristol City and it is the experienced striker Nahki Wells.

The forward from Bermuda is the team's top goalscorer this season in Championship, with eleven goals. On top of that, Wells also notched four assists as well so far, so Blackpool should pay attention to him.
