Preston vs Stoke City Prediction & Match Preview

Preston North End vs Stoke City
English Championship
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Deepdale Stadium.

Preston North End were one of the most efficient hosts in the Championship last year who had a slow start, hoping to get those numbers as soon as possible. Their upcoming opponent is going to be Stoke City this Saturday at Deepdale Stadium.

Both teams have won only one point in the opening two matches, looking for an easy jump to the upper part of the table. That is only possible with a win, not a draw, so we might see an exciting clash.

Hosts are warm favorites for the win at 2.45 rate, Stoke City will have to embrace the role of underdog at 3.00.

Preston vs Stoke City Prediction

Both teams have struggled with home matches so far. Preston’s season started with an upset and 0-1 home loss to Swansea City, while Stoke allowed Bristol City to conquer Bet365 Stadium last Sunday.

Preston have better quality squad in our opinion, and solid record against this opponent in the past. So, 2.45 odds on Preston to win are just too good to be missed, stake shouldn’t be high though.

There have been fewer than three goals scored in Stoke City’s last five games. The Potters are obviously struggling when it comes to creativity upfront, which is one of the main reasons why are we going to back Under 2.5 FT option.
