AFC Bournemouth vs Bristol City Prediction
Bournemouth ended their five-year stay in the Premier League with their relegation last season, while Bristol City narrowly lost out on promotion to Fulham in the Championship playoff.
In light of this, both sides are among the favourites to secure promotion come the end of the season and their high positions on the table reflect this.
Bristol City started the campaign like a house on fire, winning their first four league games, although they have failed to win any of their three matches since then.
The loss of Said Benrahma to West Ham is expected to seriously affect the Robins, but they should still have enough to give Bournemouth a run for their money and get a positive result away from home.
