Birmingham vs Stoke Prediction
Both these sides look evenly matched on paper. They have recorded the same number of points till this stage, and have conceded the same number of goals. The only thing separating them is the number of scored goals, which Birmingham has five in excess. Their slightly superior frontline and home advantage will likely be the deciding factors in this tie.
Goals will be scarce in this tightly contested match. Either side has good defensive statistics and it will be hard for the defenses to be breached. The win will probably come from a single goal margin, and the scales are tipped in Birmingham’s favor. It looks the correct score will most probably be 1-0, to the home team.
Birmingham is undefeated in their entire history, at this venue, against Stoke. Half the number of h2h matches played at this venue ended with a win for Birmingham, and the score was, as expected 1-0.
Birmingham will win at least one of the halves. And once the lead is taken, they will preserve it until the end.
