Bristol City's Premier League promotion push takes a break this Sunday as they host top-flight Wolves in an attractive looking 5th round FA Cup clash.
What are we expecting from the match and what bets are we placing on betPawa?
Premier League Wolves come to town in the FA Cup fifth round this weekend, and Bristol City fans should be excited. City is in the midst of an extraordinary run of nine back-to-back wins across all competitions and optimism is extended to their 5th position in the Championship and a possible promotion push. Impressively, six of Bristol's victories in that run of nine have been accompanied by a clean sheet, displaying a steely side. Bristol has scored exactly two goals in each of their previous four home matches, and Wolves have failed to score in only one of their last eight away matches so we expect goals here. Interestingly, there has been a goal after the 75th minute in three of the last four meetings between these sides.
Bristol City could be without former Wolves player Andreas Weimann, who came off in the midweek win over QPR with a back spasm. But there are no other reported injury worries for the Robins, who are aiming for a 10th consecutive win in all competitions. Wolves will assess the fitness of Diogo Jota, who has been nursing a dead leg. John Ruddy has played in all Wolves' FA Cup games this season so is set to replace Rui Patricio in goal.
- Bristol City has won just two of their last 18 meetings with Wolves in all competitions (D4, L12).
- The last match between the sides saw a red card for each side and a 94th-minute winner for Wolves, whose head coach Nuno Espirito Santo was also sent to the stands by the referee.
- Wolves are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions.
It's tempting to back under 2.5 goals priced at 1.66 on betPawa and we've done just that.
