Bristol City vs Stoke Prediction & Match Preview

Bristol City vs Stoke
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 15 July 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol)

The hosts are currently aiming for a top ten finish and are equal on points with Derby County who are 10th in the table.

With the two back to back wins against Hull City and Middlesbrough, they have regained some confidence. Especially after the nine games without a win, they were struggling to get points on the board.

Stoke City is also coming into this game on the back of a home win. That 2-0 wins over Birmingham was their second in three matches.

Apart from those two results, they have lost all three of their last five league fixtures. So this could very well turn out to be an interesting game.

Bristol City vs Stoke: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Robins have a two-match going on in the head to head games.
  • They have three wins and two defeats in five previous meetings with this opposition.
  • Three of those five games had less than 2.5 goals in total.
  • Both teams have two wins each in their last five clashes at this ground.
  • All four latest games here saw a final score with fewer than 2.5 goals too.
  • Stoke has no win in their seven consecutive away games in the league.

Bristol City vs Stoke: Prediction

The away form of Stoke City is the worst for any side this season. From the 21 matches on the road, Stoke has won only four while losing 13 in return. During that period they have conceded a whopping 40 goals and scored an average of one goal per game.

With a winless run going on since late January 2020, they may lose in this one too. On the other end, the hosts have returned to winning ways with the home win against Hull City.

Even though Hull City is not one of the strongest opponents they are much similar to Stoke in terms of the current form.

In terms of scoring, the hosts have netted in 7 of their last 9 matches. In the two latest league games, they have scored a total of 5 goals. But the defense still gives away goals even when the team picks up three points.

At the same time, the visitors have failed to get in the score sheet in their last two outings. Thus we may see only one team finding the target on Wednesday.
