Bristol City will be aiming to recover from a 2-0 loss to WBA when they take on Leicester City in the Championship round 39 curtain-raiser. The Robins have suffered four defeats in the previous five league matches, with little to play for in the season finale. All Sam Bell, Rob Atkinson, and Ayman Benarous are sidelined with injuries, while Matty James should be fit for Friday’s game.

The Foxes, on the other hand, aim to recover from the FA Cup loss to Chelsea. Leicester City have a chance to overtake. Leeds United in top position and we predict that they are going to take advantage of the current atmosphere in Bristol City’s dressing room. As for the away side, Callum Doyle is banned for the match; while all Jamie Vardy, Ricardo Pereira; and Dennis Praet are major doubts and the trio will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.

Bristol City vs Leicester Prediction

Considering Bristol City’s poor run of form at the moment. Leicester still looks to have a good chance of winning the Good Friday fixture. Leicester has lost on the road on just three previous occasions whilst picking up 13 wins on the road.

The away form and confidence of Leicester makes them a potentially dangerous opponent for Bristol City side at home.

My money is on Leicester to win this match, as they target the top spot on the Championship standings.

We will take under 2.5 goals at full-time as Leicester struggled with goals in their last outing against Bristol City.
