Robins win to leave Posh on brink of drop
Firstly, we want to mention that Peterborough have played 20 games away from home, and they lost 16 of them; they won just two of those 20 games, with two draws. Furthermore, Peterborough have managed just one win in their last 18 league games; they lost 12 times in that 18 game stretch, with five draws. Although Bristol City have struggled to win games recently, they've been relatively better than Peterborough. Bristol City have four wins in their last seven home games. It's also important to point out that Bristol City have had Peterborough's number in the past; they won all of the last four clashes between these two. For this reason, we're making the prediction that Bristol City will take all three points from this match.
A game full of goals
Encounters between Bristol City and Peterborough have mostly been high-scoring games; eight of their last nine meetings went above the 2.5 goal mark. It's worth noting that these teams have conceded a lot of goals this season; as a matter of fact, only two teams (Peterborough included) have allowed more goals than Bristol City. Because of the way these teams concede goals, their games tend to be high-scoring games; four of Peterborough's last five, and 16 of Bristol City's last 19 league games went over 2.5. With this in mind, this will likely be a high-scoring affair.
