Champions Burnley are looking to put the cherry on the cake that is their 2022/23 campaign as they face Bristol City in the Championship this weekend.
Bristol City currently sit 14th in the Championship with fourteen wins, fourteen draws and sixteen losses from forty-four games this season.
The Robins have had a fairly underwhelming campaign and one their fans will feel could have been much better had they delivered on the promise they showed early in the season.
They’re by no means the league’s best side on paper but there’s a lot of individual quality in this side and given the standard of some of the play-off contenders they should feel like they’ve underachieved this season.
They enter this game amidst a reasonable run of form having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 2-1 over Rotherham United.
Their form at home has been strong of late too, having won two and drawn two of their last four games on home soil.
The Robins have nothing to play for here but they’ll want to end the campaign on a positive note as they attempt to build towards what they hope will be a successful 2023/24 season.
Burnley currently sit top of the Championship with twenty-seven wins, fourteen draws and three losses from forty-four games this season.
The Clarets have had an outstanding campaign and now have the receipts to show for it having confirmed themselves as Champions at the ground of their bitter rivals on Tuesday night having beaten Blackburn Rovers 1-0 to secure the trophy.
They will, then, enter this game on cloud nine but their form overall has dipped somewhat having won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five games.
That’s understandable, though, considering what they’ve committed to this campaign and these last two games will be nothing more than a celebration of their achievements given the league’s record points total is also out of reach.
Their form away from home has been decent with The Clarets winning two and drawing two of their last four games one the road.
Having beaten The Robins 2-1 when the two sides met back in September Burnley will be confident of a league doubt here, but don’t be surprised if their standards slip after what will likely have been some lively celebrations on Tuesday night.
For our Bristol City vs. Burnley prediction, we’re going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
