Bristol City 9/20 to beat Burton Albion in Friday’s Championship battle

Competition: Championship

Market: Bristol City to beat Burton Albion

Odds: 9/20 @ Bet365

The Championship returns on Friday as the international break finally comes to an end. There is a glut of exciting and important games to come both at the top and the bottom of the league, with Bristol City representing the top half and Burton Albion playing the part for the bottom half in this clash.

Bristol City have been in fine form this season and are favourites for three points on Friday, and rightly so. Just one loss this season and three wins in their last five games has seen them rise to fourth in the table with 20 points, just four behind leaders Cardiff. A win at home is vital in their continuing quest for promotion, and their opponents in the form of lowly Burton constitutes a game they simply must win if they have any real aspirations of going up this season.

The visitors, on the other hand, are in dreadful form this term. One win in their last five along with two draws and two defeats has seen Burton slip down to 21st place with nine points, just one clear of Birmingham City in 22nd place. A win on Friday may just kickstart their faltering campaign, but it is unlikely they will be able to get past a Bristol side that have already scored 20 goals this season. With this in mind, Bet365 are giving odds of 9/20 for a Bristol City win.
