Prediction: Bristol City vs Blackpool – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

First division playoff winner Blackpool Celebrate your return to the championship with a face trip Bristol city Saturday afternoon.

In the meantime, Nigel Pearson hope that City is ready to take off after a bad end to the 2021-22 campaign.


Prediction for this match

After just nine points from 14 championship games, parts of the Bristol City fan base will be of the opinion that Pearson shouldn’t have stayed in his role at Ashton Gate.

The club’s hierarchy responded, however, by handing the former Leicester City man a three-year deal, a vote of confidence in a manager who has been struggling to get results since holding the Foxes a year before their Premier League title triumph.

Many of Bristol City’s troubles last season had little to do with Pearson, but given the changes over the summer, that won’t stop fans from expecting a positive start.

Although there were far more departures than players arriving at the club, the additions were made by Matty James and Andy King should only benefit the changing room.

Blackpool manager Neil Critchley celebrates after the game against Oxford on May 21, 2021

At a time when Bristol City will hope to emerge as a contender for a playoff spot, Blackpool is returning to the second division with survival as a priority.

That is not to say Neil Critchley After the strong second half of last season, will not go back to the championship in a positive mood in the club’s first year.

Critchley has used his knowledge of U23 football to attract multiple players who want to make a difference in the pro ranks while Richard Keogh will enjoy the opportunity to be a leader in a locker room that lacks experience at this level.

The Tangerines ended a mixed preseason with the opportunity to face Manchester City earlier this week and lose the game at the Premier League champions 4-1.

Few people would be surprised if one of City’s young contingents got loaned out on Bloomfield Road later this month, and Critchley will hope they benefit from the experience before it kicks off.

James and King could make immediate debuts in the center of Bristol City midfield, but co-newcomers Rob Atkinson is expected to begin under the replacements.

Chris Martin will likely survive the nod Nahki Wells in the attack, with Tomas Kalas available again after representing the Czech Republic at Euro 2020.

With so many signings coming in ahead of the new season, Critchley will consider a number of things before choosing his Blackpool XI.

New goalkeeper Daniel Grimshaw may have to settle for a place on the bench, but Keogh and Josh Bowler a start can be given.

Tyreece John-Juleswho came to Blackpool on loan from Arsenal could be held in reserve.

Bristol City possible starting line-up:
Bentley; Vyner, Baker, Kalas, Dasilva; King James; Weimann, Palmer, O’Dowda; Martin

Blackpool possible starting line-up:
Maxwell; Connolly, Keogh, husband, Garbutt; Ward, James, Douglas, Anderson; Yates, Hamilton

Probability: Bristol City 2-1 Blackpool

There’s an argument that Blackpool is the marginal favorite for this competition considering how City finished last season. Nevertheless, we have to support the established second division side in order to prevail in a close game, possibly with a goal in the final stages.
