City began their season with a 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest, while Palace surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 to Watford at Selhurst Park.
The home side survived by the skin of their teeth last season after finishing 20th in the table, and they have been tipped as one of the favourites to fight the drop once more.
Palace finished a lowly 17th in the previous campaign, and without any real investment in the squad, they could also face a battle to stay in the division.
City have a slight doubt over the fitness of Jonathan Stead, who could be replaced by Marvin Elliot in attack. Meanwhile, Palace are expected to name the same side that suffered the turnaround on Saturday.
Bristol City: Heaton; Wilson, Fontaine, Carey, Cunningham; Foster, Skuse, Pearson, Woolford; Stead, Adomah
Crystal Palace: Speroni; Ward, Martin, Ramage, Moxey; Parr, Dikgacoi, Jedinak, Garvan; Zaha, Wilbraham
Sports Mole says: 1-0
