Bristol City v Wolves Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
February 13, 2019
Ashton Gate - FA Cup
Premier League Wolves head to Championship side Bristol City this weekend, with Nuno Santo's side looking for a FA Cup quarter final spot.
The two sides faced each other in last season's Championship campaign, with Wolves ultimately gaining promotion back to the top flight.
Santo's side won 2-1 away at Ashton Gate, following a 3-3 draw at home.
Bristol City will be without defender Lloyd Kelly and forward Andreas Weimann, who both picked up injuries in their midweek win over QPR.
Wolves are expected to make changes to their line up for this clash, John Ruddyy, Morgan Gibbs-White, Roman Saiss and Amanda Traore all expected to start, as they have done in previous rounds.
Bristol City v Wolves Predictions and Preview
Lee Johnson's side welcome Wolves to the West Country on the back of a fantastic run of form, with nine game winning streak ahead of this weekend. In fact the hosts are unbeaten in all competitions since November 24th, when they lost away at Leeds, a 15 game unbeaten run for The Robins.
Wolves survived a scare against Newcastle in their last game, coming back to steal a last minute 1-1 draw against Rafa Benitez's side at Molineux. Santo's side are unbeaten in their six last games in Premier League and FA Cup action, and they would reach the quarter finals for the first time since 2003.
This has all of the makings of an upset, particularly with Wolves likely to field a weaker side as they look to chase down a Europa League spot in the Premier League, and Bristol City are at 16/5 to win. The home side are unlikely to outscore their opponents by a huge amount, and with a first FA Cup quarter final since 1974 on offer they will just want to win.
With that in mind, as home win with under 2.5 total goals scored is available at 7/1.
Bristol City to win 1-0 9/1
The Robins shocked everyone with a run to the semi finals of the EFL Cup last season, and they look well placed to cause some more surprises in cup competitions again in 2018-19. Wolves have their eye on the league, and they are in place to finish inside the top seven if they can keep their form going.
Callum O'Dowda to score first at 14/1
The Republic of Ireland is the man in form for Bristol City at the moment, with two goals in his last four appearances for the midfielder. The 23 year-old has been impressive for Johnson's side as they look to secure a promotion play-off place in the Championship.
