Luton vs Bristol City England – Championship Date: Sunday, 26 December 2021 Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET Venue: Kenilworth Road.
Following a mid-table finish last season, Luton were hovering over the top half of the Championship earlier in the season. However with a mediocre run of games that followed they slumped in their league position.
Hoping to regain form the club will take on Bristol City at home this Sunday. Just 3 teams separate the visitors from the relegation spot.
Consequently, they would be looking to move higher in the table with a win against a side who they have not got the better of in recent times.
The Hatters have managed to register just 1 win in their last 6 league matches. Managing to add just 5 points from those fixtures.
They managed to hold league leaders Fulham to a draw at home in their last match. The club currently occupies 14th place in the league table.
The Robins have managed 2 wins and 2 draws in their last 6 matches alongside 2 losses. They were unable to gain anything in their previous match which saw them lose 2-3 against Huddersfield at home. Following which they are 18th in the league, 8 points clear of the drop zone.
Luton vs Bristol City Head-to-head
Cider Army has just 1 win against this side in 12 previous clashes.
3 or more goals were scored in 8 of their last 9 meetings.
Both teams have scored in the preceding 3 fixtures.
The visitors have lost 5 consecutive fixtures at this venue.
Luton vs Bristol City Prediction
The hosts are winless in their last 3 home games. However one has to consider the quality of opposition in those fixtures as well.
With that being said, the club has picked 7 points in their last 5 league fixtures and will face a side that has 4 losses and a draw in their preceding 5 away fixtures. Consequently, the hosts should be able to seal the result in this fixture.
Elijah Adebayo with 10 goals in the Championship this season is the league’s joint 5th highest goal scorer currently. Having scored 32% of the team’s goals this season, I have backed him to score this Sunday.
