Ipswich Town vs Bristol City: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 36

One team races for first place, another seeks safety in the middle of the table.

After regaining sole possession of the second place in the standings, Ipswich Town will host Bristol City in the EFL Championship’ Week 36. Match will begin on Tuesday, March 5, at 8:45pm CET.

Ipswich Town

After being relegated from the Premier League in 2002, Ipswich Town struggled to stay relevant in the Championship, even going down for a stint in the League One.

Now, in their first season back up, Ipswich is looking for a back-to-back promotion, as they managed to regain sole possession of second place during the weekend. 70 goals, good for the second-best offense in the league, gives the squad a chance in every match, and with two winnable games this week, Ipswich Town can solidify their grip on the top-2 spot for a while.

Bristol City

Despite nearly making it to the Premier League in 2008, Bristol City has never been able to come back to those heights. Team eventually fell back to the League One in 2013, returned to the Championship three seasons later, but have not finished above the 8th place.

Losing at home to Cardiff CIty last week despite controlling the pace of the game was a bitter pill to swallow, as Bristol City is now only six points clear of the relegation zone. Tough spot to be in, considering the looming trip to the east.

Prediction ⚽️

The Robins lost at home in the first round, as Ipswich Town secured a «1-0» victory and with The Blues winning five in a row, hosts will be a favorite on Tuesday.

With all the recent Leicester City’ miscues, Ipswich might even become the league leader by the end of the week, so we will bet on the hosts to win with 1.57 odds 🔥.
