Cardiff City vs Stoke City Prediction
Cardiff were on the road the last match-day and had to script a comeback to avoid a loss. The first half solely belonged to the hosts, Charlton. The home team had found the back of the net twice to go ahead 2-0.
However, the visitors came back determined to take control of the proceedings. Four minutes into the latter half, the visiting contingent was given a penalty, which they missed, unfortunately. Be that as it may, the squad slotted a goal, just three minutes later. As the game progressed they added one more, to equalize the scoresheet at 2-2, and then held it till the end.
Stoke too managed to come back from behind in their latest fixture. They had the home advantage and were taking on Wigan. After conceding almost at the end of the first half, the hosts hit back in the 55th minute, and then late into the game, in the 90+2nd minute to be precise, came the winner from Stoke.
This Tuesday, the home advantage of Cardiff will come greatly into play. They have lost just once at this setting this Championship campaign. Moreover, they have the confidence of having plied their trade in the top-most division just a season back, and obviously are more experienced and hardened than their counterparts.
In addition, it’s been more than a decade since Stoke have won at this ground, and keep note that their visitors are placed 23rd in a table of 24. All these factors combine to pick out Cardiff as the favorite to post the three points.
However, the desperation Stoke are in right now, coupled with their back-to-back wins and Cardiff’s ability to consistently keep clean sheets, single them out to find the back of the net at least once this Tuesday, and thus check the BTTS box.
