Blackpool and Bristol City will play in the 1st game for the new season at Championship Football League England, as the hosts enter the league after winning the final of the playoffs, while the guests finished 19th and this season will again compete and will try for better ranking.
Blackpool showed a strong game last season, and during the summer training program there was a match with the Premier League Manchester City, where they lost 4:1, but still managed to score against the finalist in the Champions League. In this match, the team of Nick Crichley did not report any injured and absent players, as the new addition Grimshaw is more likely to remain among the reserves in this match, and the starter will be Josh Bowler. The team hired by Arsenal Tyreece John-Jules will be on reserve bench, but can also be seen in one of the next matches. Strong play of Blackpool in the lower division, but here the class of the teams is different, so this will be the first test of the coach in the Championship.
Bristol City kept their place in the league, but their last matches were not at high level. Of the last 5 games in the Championship, they have recorded 5 losses, and probably took a break at the end of the season given the lead they had from the relegation line. Now, however, they must mobilize and show their capabilities against the rookie in the championship. Matty James and Andy King are expected to be in the starting lineup, as well as Chris Martin in the front line. Tomas Kalas will also join the starting eleven, following his participation in Euro 2020 for the Czech team.
Prediction – both teams to score – 1.92 from 22bet
