Bristol City v Swansea Bet Builder Betting Tip:

Bristol City or Draw Double Chance

Bristol City will be licking their lips at the form Swansea have shown in recent weeks.

Going back to last season, the Swans are winless in their last five Championship outings and have only found the net twice in their three league matches in the 2021-22 season.

Bristol City have lost just one of their last six meetings with the Swans and will expect this run to continue in front of vocal home support.

Both teams to score

Bristol City are yet to keep a clean sheet in the league, shipping five in their three outings.

Swansea don’t exactly look prolific, but are expected to click into gear eventually off the back of a positive fourth-placed finish last year.

Chris Martin to score anytime

No, not Coldplay’s frontman, but Bristol City’s striker who already has two goals and an assist to his name in three Championship outings.

The 32-year-old had a tough time in front of goal last season but looks eager to return to the dizzy heights of his goal-scoring form in his Derby County years.

Flynn Downes to be booked

The 22-year-old has collected an impressive 16 yellows across his last two seasons with Ipswich Town and is a prime candidate to find himself in the book again on Friday night.

The holding midfielder could well find himself chasing shadows if the home team are able to overrun the middle of the park.
