Both teams to score at Bristol City vs Swansea 4/5 for Saturday’s Championship clash

Competition: Championship

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365

Two sides who now find themselves in the mix to land a surprise playoff position, Swansea will tarvel to a resurgent Ashton Gate this weekend.

Starting with Lee Johnson’s Robins, coming off the back of a 2-1 win over Bolton and booking their spot in the fifth round of this year’s FA Cup, the mood in Bristol City’s camp couldn’t be higher. Now winning their last six matches on the bounce, a win for the Robins on Saturday could see them make a return to the playoff positions. Despite recording just one Championship clean sheet at Ashton Gate in their last seven attempts, the Reds have been in very impressive form in the final third. City have now scored in each of their last 13 matches and leading goalscorer Famara Diedhiou has recorded eight goals this campaign.

As for the visitors, Swansea find themselves in an almost identical situation to City. Despite a sluggish start on their return to the Championship, Graham Potter’s side appear to be finding their feet. While they could only pick up a 3-3 draw with Birmingham in midweek, the Swans are currently enjoying a seven-match unbeaten run. With the chance to move within touching distance of the top-six, one man to watch will be leading goalscorer, Oliver McBurnie. The Scottish international bagged a brace in midweek and already has 13 league goals to his name.
